Over the last two-plus decades, Garcia has set the standard for the sound of the California desert. His work in genre-progenitors Kyuss speaks for itself; loudly, and with much fuzz, as do subsequent desert rock institutions he formed such as Vista ChinoUnidaSlo Burn and Hermano.  His contribution to the legacy of rock n roll is relentless, not historical.

Now, together with The Band Of Gold, John Garcia returns to satiate his eager Australian fans with songs from their latest, self titled record.

Featuring tracks like the rather relaxed Space Vato the album starts off a desertfest second to none that melts down a whole subgenre to its core with groovers like My Everything,Cheyletiella and Sturm-and-Drang-y Popcorn (Hit Me When You Can). Hypnotic closer Softer Side releases you back into reality…

Watch the lyric video for the albums super sexy riff fest, Chicken Delight 

Close your eyes and just imagine cruising down Route 66 in a Mustang Convertible. It’s just turned from dusk to night and there is nothing but the cool breeze, a lonely road and a coyote howling at the moon that’s illuminated with a map of the cosmos within it.  Now open your eyes…welcome to the world of John Garcia.

Experience the Californian Desert from the comfort of the following venues when John Garcia & The Band Of Gold roll through the following venues next summer. You might just hear an old Kyuss classic or two too!
