Sasquatch is a rock band from Los Angeles, CA. They tend to sip on influences from 70's metal, rock, and psychedelia. Their songwriting approach is clear-cut; keep the focus on the hook.
The band was born in Philadelphia in 2000 and moved to Los Angeles in 2001 after Keith Gibbs (guitar, vox) joined up with Detroit natives Rick Ferrante (drums) and Clayton Charles (bass). Upon Clayton’s departure in 2007, the guys recruited Chicagoan Jason Casanova (ex-Behold! The Monolith, Tummler) to join the fold. We arrive at 2017 and Dr. Craig Riggs (Roadsaw, Kind, Antler) is now shellacking the kit when he's not brewing coffee or watching the Red Sox.
The band’s music has been featured on a variety of movies, television shows, and video games including the reissue of Clerks, FX’s original hit series Sons of Anarchy, A&E's Dog The Bounty Hunter, Jersey Girl, CW’s The Supernatural, and MTV’s Viva La Bam, Bam’s Unholy Union, and Rob and Big, NHL 2005, American Chopper, and Monster Garage.
After shaking some walls with not one, but two, closely packed studio albums (the self-titled debut and "II") in 2004 and ’06, the power trio went subterranean until 2010 before resurfacing with a new lineup and propulsive third opus, "III", followed up by the straight-ahead rocker, "IV", in 2013.
The band’s latest album, Maneuvers, was released in June 2017 and features the work of Riggs, behind the kit. This is the band's most concise work to-date. Extended jams were stripped down to meat and potatoes. Short and sweet is the path looking forward. Andrew Schneider (NYC) also returned behind the boards this round. You may recognize the name as he also provided the mixes on "II". What fans hear is arguably the gents most mature and inspired song-set released, chunked with both heartwarmingly familiar moments – but all of it heavy on the heavy, as they say…always. Unprecedented attention was also devoted to spinning new yarns out of those evergreen rock and roll stories about love lost, hate found, relationships built and lives trashed, homes wrecked, etc.
Known for its dichotomic sound which merges sturm und drang heaviness with relentlessly catchy, AOR laden melody, Lo-Pan recorded Subtle at NYC's Reservoir with Grammy Award winning producer James Brown (Foo Fighters, Ghost, NIN) and is the anticipated follow-up to 'In Tensions', a record hailed as "rock more akin for a day at the beach than a nightmarish, post-apocalyptic dungeon lair."
Sarina is an experimental rock band from Philadelphia blending elements of prog, soul and stoner rock.
