A fuzzrock three-piece inspired by 70s and 90s bands mixed with stoner elements. A familiar but unique sound presented in a modern way. Formed out of different bands, Baardvader returns to the essence of rock by injecting new energy to the genre.
Definitelifly formed in early 2019 after years of playing in and out of different bands. Baardvader wrote and recorded their self-titled debut in spring and summer of 2019 and made the finishing touches to the album throughout the rest of the year. ‘Baardvader’ was released on January 31st in 2020 and was followed by a small clubtour the two months following the release, which was cut short due to the Covid-9 pandemic. Shortly after the pandemic hit the band started looking towards the future. During the two year gap the band wrote and recorded their second album ‘Foolish Fires’, finishing the final stages of the record during early 2022. Finally, after two years in the making, ‘Foolish Fires’ was released late 2022. After the release, the band played club shows as part of the Popronde festival in 2022 to be followed with club shows during 2023.

A super-massive rock band from Eindhoven, the rock capital of the Netherlands. Their music is a mix of sludge, stoner rock and metal. Komatsu is praised for their live performances. The press writes: “A Komatsu show will let the ground shake and gets your attention from start to finish. It is truly an eargasm for the trained listener. At a live show Komatsu grabs your throat and wont let go” and “This flat rolling machine with her bulldozer rock will effortlessly coquer Europe and other continents!”.

Supersonic Blues
Three buddies laying down that heavy, fuzzed-out, psyched-up, blues- based rock n’ soul. No strangers to The Hague’s gritty underground scene, SUPERSONIC BLUES have an unhealthy obsession with diggin’ out that one obscure 60s/70s rarity. Still, these guys sure
enjoy a 21st-century dystopian boogie! For fans of: Cream, Blue Cheer, Taste, Grand Funk, Sabbath and the Hendrix Experience. Genre: Heavy, fuzzed-out dad rock.
