** with Kadavar

Beyond a highly recognizable sound, MARS RED SKY have been opening gateways to new dimensions with their otherworldly songs since their self-titled debut back in 2011. Whether you experience their records or live performances, their hulking yet trippy brand of stoner rock takes you onto an infinite journey. From the early days, the Bordeaux trio has established as an essential live act, treading upon the biggest rock and metal stages (SXSW, Hellfest, Roadburn, Desertfest, Eurockéennes) and opening for the likes of Sleep, Dinosaur Jr., Kyuss Lives!, Killing Joke or Gojira.

With their sophomore full-length « Stranded In Arcadia » (2014), a sci-fi odyssey filled with dystopian reveries, MARS RED SKY quickly became a cornerstone band among the heavy rock scene, garnering praise from international critics. « Hypnotic », « massive », « charismatic », « psychedelic » are some of the words used to define the prolific trio’s 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 released their third album « Apex III (Praise For The Burning Soul) » (2016), once again showcasing a behemoth sound that blends perfectly with Julien Pras ethereal vocals and guitars, opening a door to even more bewitching paths. After another two years spent on the road, 2019 felt like the right time to return with their brand new album « The Task Eternal », their darkest and most progressive offering to date, already described as their biggest album yet.
