Truckfighters
Truckfighters are back with the sizzling new album V. Yup, you guessed it, it's their fifth album and it's pretty great.

If you are interested in groovy, stoner-influenced, progressive and melodic hard rock you probably know about Truckfighters already. "The best band that ever existed" as Josh Homme said in the 2011 "fuzzomentary" Truckfighters. You might also know the story about how Niklas 'Dango' Källgren teamed up with bassist and vocalist Oskar 'Ozo' Cedermalm in a worn down rehearsal space in Örebro, Sweden in 2001 and how the first song they ever recorded, Desert Cruiser, since then has gone on to become a desert rock anthem. You probably also know that the band itself has gone on to release four full length albums and played sold out shows on four continents.

The band's upcoming fifth album, V, is released September 30th under exclusive license to the established label Century Media Records.
"Century Media have been very cool with us. We've been able to keep that do it yourself-philosophy of ours, to focus solely on our creative process and producing the album", says Ozo.

V continues the Truckfighters tradition of blending big riffs, dynamism and intricate songwriting.
"The album won't come as a huge surprise for those who've heard our earlier work – but at the same time it feels like a leap forward. We've been able to create some of our best songs so far. For us this is definitely the album of the year", says Dango and laughs.

If you know your Truckfighters you know their history with drummers. It's been a few. "We use to say that Truckfighters has a 'very Spinal Tap relationship' to drummers," says Niklas, "but we are really happy with the contributions of Daniel 'El Danno' Israelsson on V". "Also, it's pretty cool that we got our friend, drummer extraordinaire Peter Damin – known from the Paradise Lost album Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us – to play the drums on the track The 1."

Mothership
Mothership
Rock n' Roll history is rife with brothers working together to create their artistic vision. But rarely do we hear about a full-fledged family unit embarking down the treacherous path of a musical career. In the case of Texas based Mothership, the Brother Juett (Kyle on bass, younger brother Kelley on guitar) enlisted the aid of their father, John Juett, to help get the 'ship off the ground. Raised on a healthy dose of their father's 70's-era record collection, the brothers began crafting songs fueled on the raucous and raw good time vibe when music seemed to know no bounds. Lifting off the pad for the first time in 2010, the band began to gain momentum and notoriety with their unabashed live shows. Knowing that the service of the family patriarch was temporary, Father Juett actively helped his boys find his replacement, and in late 2011, enter the mighty Judge Smith to hammer away on the skins.

In early 2012, Mothership entered Crystal Clear Studios with Wo Fat mastermind Kent Stump manning the boards and by mid-year, the band self-released their debut album. It was the combination of the 70's-era heavy rock fuzz and fury mixed with the blistering guitar solos of the NWOBHM-era that drew the bands attention to California-based Heavy Rock label, Ripple Music. In the waning months of 2012, after a successful year of traveling regionally throughout Texas and opening for national acts such as Prong, Red Fang, Gypsyhawk, Earthen Grave, and Lo-Pan, Mothership officially dubbed Ripple Music as its Home Port and began plotting a course for their first U.S. Tour in early 2013. The band's debut album will see its official Ripple release on February 12th, 2013 in the way of CD, LP, Deluxe LP, and Digital releases.
