John Garcia Announces Kyuss Songs Tour

John Garcia Announces Kyuss Songs Tour

In the late 1980s, a legendary group emerged from the sun-baked Palm Desert and, along with contemporaneous operators Sleep, inaugurated the genre of stoner rock. Since Kyuss' dissolution, Josh Homme has gone on to mainstream success with Desert Sessions, Queens of the Stone Age, and most recently Them Crooked Vultures. Kyuss' other principal John Garcia has participated in a wide range of projects from his own groups Unida and Hermano to lending vocals to a Crystal Method single. Although rumors of a Kyuss reunion have persisted for years, and Garcia joined Queens of the Stone Age for a brief one-off set of Kyuss songs in 2005, there has never been definitive news.

 

Because of Homme's other obligations, the possibility of a true Kyuss reunion in the near future is a slim one, and so Garcia has decided to take things into his own hands. Garcia had this to say about the project, which is going under the name Garcia Plays Kyuss (GPK): “I don’t want to do this just for myself, but especially for the fans. Both for the ones that have seen Kyuss live back in the days, and especially for the ones who haven't had that chance." The backing band consists of Bruno Fevery (guitar), Jacques de Haard (bass) and Rob Snijders (drums). So far, the only dates announced are in Europe, kicking off the with annual Roadburn festival in the Netherlands on April 17. Stateside fans will just have to hold their breath in the hopes of a U.S. tour announcement, but in the meantime head over to Garcia's MySpace page where you can vote for the setlist and to bring the show to your town.

i should be happy about the prospect of seeing those songs live, but this is a half-assed plot at best seeing how nobody else from the band signed on. kyuss karaoke = not a good look.

I agree. A Homme/Garcia tour would be wonderful but it seems less and less likely. Europe, where the metal community is rabid, will eat this up though.

Sleep >>> Kyuss

Ice cream vs. pizza. Both are equally awesome to me.
