MARS RED SKY TO KICK OFF EUREOPAN TOUR THIS OCTOBER!
New album, “The Task Eternal”, Out Now on Listenable Records!
Stoner rock behemoths MARS RED SKY, who just released their critically acclaimed album The Task Eternal on September 27th on Listenable Records, will embark on an extensive European tour, that will kick off by next week! Just recently, the band premiered a captivating video for the track and fuzz rock anthem The Proving Grounds. Watch MARS RED SKY‘s new video!
Beyond their highly recognizable sound, MARS RED SKY have been opening gateways to new dimensions with otherworldly songs since their self-titled debut back in 2011. Whether you experience their records or live performances, their hulking yet trippy brand of stoner rock takes you onto an infinite journey. From the early days, the Bordeaux trio has established as an essential live act, treading upon the biggest rock and metal stages (SXSW, Hellfest, Roadburn, Desertfest, Eurockéennes festival) and opening for the likes of Sleep, Dinosaur Jr., Kyuss Lives!, Killing Joke or Gojira to name just a few.
With their sophomore full-length “Stranded In Arcadia” (2014), a sci-fi odyssey filled with dystopian reveries, MARS RED SKY quickly became a cornerstone band among the heavy rock scene, garnering praise from international critics. “Hypnotic”, “massive”, “charismatic”, “psychedelic” are some of the words used to define the prolific trio’s sound, floating atop the stoner rock constellation and 70s psych pop nebula. Two years and hundreds of shows across Europe and Americas later, the band released their third album “Apex III (Praise For The Burning Soul)” (2016). Once again produced by Brazilian engineer Gabriel Zander, their behemoth sound blends perfectly with Julien Pras ethereal vocals and guitars, opening a door to even more bewitching paths.
In 2017, MARS RED SKY treated the fans to a highly collectable item with the “Myramyd” EP – an instrumental odyssey in the form of a 17-minute live recording. After another two years spent on the road, 2019 felt like the right time to return with their brand new album The Task Eternal on Listenable Records, followed by a heavy touring schedule!
