Strange Waters Releases Debut EP!

Fort Wayne's premier surf rock extravaganza, Strange Waters, released our debut EP on February 9, 2019 — it's now available for streaming on Spotify and other major music streaming services.

And you can get all up in our business at our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/strangewatersFW/

Bubbling up from the deep in 2017, Strange Waters is unleashing a torrent of surf rock on the unsuspecting midwest. What began as an exhilarating sonic exploration into reverb-drenched guitars, pounding drums, and driving bass, has turned into one of the most exciting rock revolutions The Fort has ever seen.

New album Robotron (Norway)

Hello everybody,
Robotron have a new album!
This is the final part of the trilogy that begin in 2016 and finishes in 2019.
No, Robotron is not ending, just the trilogy Smile

You can listen to the album at: https://robotron1.bandcamp.com/

This time I want to make something different. Last november I had a break-in in my apartment and all my music equipment was stolen. All my guitars, pedals, amp and cables....
So if you like Robotron and would like to support us, I would ask you to buy the new record (and the other albums as well) at BandCamp. The money received from the sales, will be used to buy new music equipment.

You can also visit https://www.facebook.com/robotron01/

Cheers,
Bjørn

The Spiratones – Next Stop, The Moon!

The Spiratones present their debut release!

Four-track EP "Next Stop, The Moon!" captures the energy and atmosphere of a hidden coastline; from the sun-kissed grooves of Supergoose, to the moonlit beach party evoked in Spiratonic and Couch Surfer, all the way through to the elemental squall of Toecutter.
To cut a long story short... music to dance to with company or on your lonesome, on a beach or in your bedroom.

Available now at Bandcamp or on CD at live shows.
