Formed in 2001, EARTHLESS prides itself on creating energetic, utterly unique and free thinking instrumental music inspired by an eclectic mix of German krautrock and Japanese heavy blues-rock. The Californian trio has dedicated itself to mastery of the mind-bending jam session, evoking the spirits of Jimi Hendrix and Black Sabbath in equal measure. Named after a song title from vintage New York garage-psych band The Druids of Stonehenge, EARTHLESS' sound has been called "A sonic kaleidoscope of lava and lightning", earning it the title of "California's loudest band". The group delivers "one of the best live shows in all of modern, heavy rock," leading to one reviewer stating that the band's "epic shredding harkens back to the days were psychedelic rock had balls the size of grapefruits and wasn't afraid to take its listeners on a ride for which they may never return."

Each member of EARTHLESS has done time in many other bands. Drummer (and former pro skater) Mario Rubalcaba currently plays in the hardcore punk band OFF! and has also occupied the drum throne in Rocket From The Crypt and Hot Snakes amongst many others. Bassist Mike Eginton played with Electric Nazarene and guitarist Isaiah Mitchell was most recently in Howlin' Rain, has played with Nebula and Drunk Horse and also heads up the Bay Area band Golden Void. In the end, EARTHLESS is the musical rock that grounds the three musicians and now, after more than half a decade since the release of their last studio LP, EARTHLESS has returned and is out to prove -- through sheer rock power -- why they are considered the cream of the modern day heavy psych scene.

EARTHLESS' 4th studio album, "Black Heaven", was recorded with Dave Catching (Eagles of Death Metal) at Rancho de la Luna in August 2017 and will be released March 18, 2018 on Nuclear Blast.


Formed in 2016 from the roots of the San Diego psychedelic rock scene, VOLCANO has erupted into one of the funnest up-tempo Afro influenced bands in Southern California. Inspired by an eclectic mix of 70's era African groups and musicians such as Fela Kuti, The Witch, and Mahavishnu. Volcano evokes the psych-tropicana spirit of the islands with a hint of free jazz cannibalism that delivers relentless upbeat and hard hitting grooves with shredding organ, drum, percussion, bass, and guitar forming a high energy musical experience that will make you never want to leave the island.

Volcano is made up of local musicians and friends, Zack Oakley of Joy on Guitar, Matt Oakley on drums, Gabe Messer of Red Octopus and Messer Guitars on Keys, Billy Ellsworth of Red Octopus and Loom on Bass, and Ake Arndt on congas.
Volcano just wrapped up recording at Audio Design for their debut full length LP that will be released in the near future on Tee Pee Records, a label that is currently home to local San Diego acts Sacri Monti, Joy, Harsh Toke, Loom, and Earthless.

Volcano is: Gabe Messer (keys), Zack Oakley (guitar), Matt Oakley (drums), Billy Ellsworth (bass), and Ake Arndt (congas).
