The Greek psychedelic hard rock band Naxatras is ready to release its new album, "III" (February 16, 2018), and is now premiering a first new song off that album. It's called "On the Silver Line" and it is a very interesting psychedelic trip, in the vein of Hawkwind. Below you can read the official press release and listen to the song:
Naxatras is a hard psychedelic rock band from Greece.
They play a warm psychedelia full of fat grooves, dreamy melodies, heavy riffs and trippy guitar solos all with the vintage touch of the 70's.
They have been playing since 2012, developing their sound and finally recorded their first full-length album in a 100% analog way at Magnetic Fidelity (a studio in rural northern Greece) with Jesus Agnew, an engineer experienced in the field of analog and DIY recordings. Only analog equipment was used in the recording-mixing-mastering stages of the album. All the songs in the record were performed entirely live during just one day. In 2016 they released their second full length album "II" as well as an EP, once more fully analog and live.
The band does high-energy live performances combining elements of psychedelic/progressive rock, stoner, funk, jazz and eastern music with a trippy video wall to accomplish full stimulation of the senses.
In summer 2015 they went on their first tour playing 5 countries in the Balkans. In summer 2016 they toured Europe once more playing more than 10 different countries including Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Hungary, Austria, Croatia and Netherlands. They also played at Void Festival in Germany and Lake on Fire festival in Austria.
The band says about the new song, which has been uploaded on YouTube: "On the Silver Line" was conceived when the band was listening to a recorded rehearsal. The guitar riff was born while John was testing his guitar and the others joined in! The hazy guitar-work and the endlessly-forward-moving beat reminded us of a silver line flowing inside the void. Are you ready for a real trip?"
In other Naxatras news, the band has scheduled a long tour across Greece. They will visit 14 cities and the tour starts from Xanthi on the 8th of March 2018. The most important gig of this tour will take place in Athens, in Gagarin 205 venue on the 21st of March 2018.
