Berlin 70s rock’n’rollers WEDGE share frantic and rebellious third single off new album « Like No Tomorrow » on Heavy Psych Sounds!
Berlin rock’n’rollers WEDGE unleash an ecstatic and delightful new track taken from their third studio album « Like No Tomorrow », dropping January 15th on Heavy Psych Sounds. Come taste the frenzy of the 60s and embrace the contagious spontaneity of « Playing A Role » now!
WEDGE comment: « Playing A Role” is our tribute to the great wild garage rock riffs of the 60s or the raw side of bands like The Kinks, The Sonics, MC5. It’s also one of our catchiest tunes on the new album, one you can definitely party to. Of course we ‘wedged’ things up quite a bit, so there is a good amount of fuzz & a spacey/hypnotic middle section, which includes something we call the chicken part. See if you can spot it! Lyrically, it’s about people hiding behind fake personas and plastic attitudes. We’re down-to-earth guys, so naturally we can’t stand pretentious folks. « Playing A Role” is our musical middle finger to all those hyped up characters. »
⚡️Go all-out rock’n’roll with new single « Playing A Role » ⚡️
WEDGE‘s upcoming third album « Like No Tomorrow” leads the trio’s musical journey to the edges of what made the 70s such a defining decade for rockers of modern ages — while their garage sound turns progressive and uplifting organs take off, their tried-and-tested psychedelia trips over the most hard-hitting riffage they’ve ever laid on tape. An uplifting album for dark times, that will moreover delight fans of Leaf Hound, MC5, Humble Pie or Sir Lord Baltimore. Listen to the album’s first singles « Computer » and « Across The Water« .
WEDGE New album « Like No Tomorrow »
Out January 15th on Heavy Psych Sounds
WEDGE was born into the spotlight in Berlin in 2014, founded by guitarist/singer Kiryk Drewinski (ex-Liquid Visions & ex-The Magnificent Brotherhood), drummer Holger “The Holg” Grosser & bassist/organist Dave Götz. The power trio describes their unique sound as driving a wedge between many different musical genres like hard rock, garage, progressive rock, psychedelia, stoner rock and all good kinds of vintage flavored long hair music. This magic mixture allowed the band to establish a wide-ranging and steadily growing fan base across the planet. Playing hundreds of ecstatic gigs in numerous European countries and beyond, the group earned their reputation as a fantastic live act.
Aside from being constantly on the road WEDGE released two studio albums on Heavy Psych Sounds: the self titled debut and « Killing Tongue“ (2018). Their third and new album « Like No Tomorrow” completes the unholy trinity of WEDGE records in the Heavy Psych Sounds catalogue. In the tradition of bands like The Raconteurs, The Hellacopters, Graveyard or Wolfmother, WEDGE are building on that vintage vibe we all know and love, while create their very own thing and connecting directly to here and now. Lyrically, the songs are picking up on the world’s zeitgeist, dealing with topics like digitalisation, mass migration and current social issues among others. The ‘Like No Tomorrow’ title is a hint at our crazy times, in which it feels like the end of the world might be lurking just around the corner. But rather than being pessimistic about it, the band wants to convey a positive message: « When it feels like there might be no tomorrow, just love and live Like No Tomorrow ».
