Beyond a highly recognizable sound imprint, MARS RED SKY craft their own otherworldly atmospheres. The trio has been entrancing crowds for a decade now, with their eponymous debut coming out in 2011, following a recording session in Spain’s mystic Bardenas desert. Whether you listen to the albums or experience their music on stage, their hulking yet trippy brand of stoner rock will take you on an infinite journey. From the beginning, the Bordelais trio becomes a major live act, leading them to play the biggest rock and metal stages (SXSW, Hellfest 2014 and 2017, Desertfest London and Berlin, Roadburn, Eurockéennes) and open for the likes of Sleep, Dinosaur Jr., Kyuss Lives!, Killing Joke, Gojira…

With their sophomore full-length « Stranded In Arcadia » (Listenable 2014), a sci-fi odyssey filled with utopian reveries, MARS RED SKY establish themselves as a cornerstone band of the heavy psych scene, garnering praise from major international critics. « Hypnotic », « massive », « charismatic », « psychedelic » are some of the tags used to define the prolific trio’s brand of 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 releases their third album « Apex III (Praise For The Burning Soul) ». Once again produced by Brazilian engineer Gabriel Zander, the sound is hulking as ever, with Julien Pras ethereal vocals opening a door on even more enchanting paths.

In 2017, MARS RED SKY treat us to an absolute collector’s item with « Myramyd » limited edition 12’’ EP – an instrumental odyssey in the form of a 17-minute live recording, on which only the most zealous fans have the ability to lend an ear. The song gets performed at the band’s second Hellfest appearance a few weeks after the release. With an insatiable appetite for the stage that keeps them travelling across lands and continents to test their creations, MRS will return in the spring and summer 2018 with a batch of live shows, including appearances at Freak Valley Festival (DE) and Resurrection Festival (SP). Now wait for the next treasure to be unearthed…
