BONZE'S FUEL (stoner, Greece)

Athens based trio self-released two EPs of stoner rock mixed with harsh punk influences. The band sets on this casual and offhand attitude with rough sound, exhilarating the lazy, southern way of life and a desire to surpass the existing orthodoxy of vivid, spatial sounds.

Trio formed in late 2012 in Athens with heavy blues rock passion in mind which has been self-released: Volume 1 (2014) and Volume 2 (2015). Recently they signed with New York based record company Factory Fast Records.

"Bonze's Fuel love the warm sound coming out from the amp tubes. They are addicted to fuzz and the 70's heavy psych rock sound. Their main influences include classic 70's rock bands and musicians like: Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath, Lynyrd Skynyrd as well as huge grunge bands from the early 90's like: Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains."

Manos Tiganis and Nikos Zairis met in the band called Damaged Goods in the past. Manos is also doing vocals for the rock band Audiobreed while Nikos often plays harmonica as a guest member of the rock band Superpuma at their gigs.

Band members:

Manos Tiganis (Bass & Vocals)
Nikos Zairis (Guitars)
Nikos Soultoukis (Drums)
