New Band To Burn One To-Second Gear Grind

Hailing from New Zealand, which seems to be a breeding ground for some pretty awesome new stoner rock bands, comes Second Gear Grind. With influences ranging from Kyuss to The Allman Brothers Band, Second Gear Grind is sure to appease your stoner rock appetite. Check them out.

"Second Gear Grind was formed in early 2005 when friends Mike and Steven (formerly of PTHC band Subsidence) sought to smash the South Island rock scene with a new brand of fuzz drenched rock which was previously lacking in the area. Second Gear Grind gigged steadily earning support and momentum as one of the country's leading fuzz rock acts, playing alongside The House of Capricorn, Slavetrader, and Soulseller among many others throughout many cities in Aotearoa culminating in December's EYES OF THE SOUTH - Stoner Rock Fest at Christchurch's infamous Jetset Lounge. Despite various line up readjustments and reformations the band are settling into a groove and vastly developing support within the rising NZ stoner scene. Second Gear Grind offer an uncompromising abundance of severely down-tuned, fuck-off riffs, contagious groove, and an assault of fuzz sending everyone it touches deep into the cosmos. 2008brings about a new set of challenges and a new direction for the esteemed rock fiends, reforming the lineup with Adrian Patchett (The Fuckstains, Content To Bleed, Subsidence, Hatecrime) on bass, James MacLean (Vice of the Sky) as a second guitarist and Kalem Mallon on drums. The new lineup played the Auckland leg of the Devils Kitchen Australasian Stoner Punk festival with The House of Capricorn, The Defendants, Soulseller and Interconnector on March 15th, which was a huge success. Keep your eyes peeled for releases in Winter of '08 as the band begins to expand their horizons. Can you dig it?! - 666 -"

Go to their MySpace page where you can download two of their tunes "Magic Ride" and "Carpet Of Smoke".
