intothelungsofhell666 Yeah the QOTSA vibe is so very much here, but there's nothing wrong with that! Imitation is the greatest form of flattery right? I don't think this will be leaving the player for awhile. They've toured with truckfighters before and I hope Fuzz keeps promoting and pushing these guys. This is an awesome band with great songs, they should be taking off after this release. DCLXVI Favorite track: Witch hunt.

Harry Harrison For those of you who just love your early QOTSA; welcome to your saviour….. Witchrider. These guys are what you wish QOTSA ended up as. Smooth vocals flow over driven, heavy bass and drums. Add some groovy guitar licks and what could possibly go wrong? Favorite track: OCD.

about

Fast rising Euro alternative rocksters ‘Witchrider’ release ‘Unmountable Stairs’ on Nov 14th and tour throughout Europe with Truckfighters.

When listening to Witchrider, you can not help but be drawn in by their magnetism. They have a haunting beauty that proves to engulf and ignite. As frontman Daniel Dorninger says, "the thing about making music is, there are no boundaries. It's like a spirit of emotions that eventually passes through your body...you never know what you're gonna' end up with".

Formed in 2012 and hailing from Graz, Austria, Witchrider sport a mutual love for the quirky riffage of heavyweights QOTSA and Eagles Of Death Metal, as well as an affection for the dark elements of Soundgarden. Siphoning fuel from these powerhouses, Witchrider offer a genuinely refreshing take on their own brand of stripped down, fuzzed up alternative rock.

Living and breathing their music is crucial to the four-piece, and as such, they are constantly writing and honing their craft. “Being able to work on music all the time is essential for all of us. That's why we record most of our stuff at home if we can. There's even a freakin' drum kit next to my bed!", states drummer Michael Hirschmugl.

Although the songs work with each other as a collective piece of work, Witchrider's music is diverse and has an array of influences. "I always found musical style not really that important. What counts the most is whether you can identify yourself with the music or not. I know I can and I am happy about every person who can as well. I think that's what makes music ‘cool’", says Hans-Peter.

As well as basking in the writing process, the band are supremely dedicated to playing live and fans will have ample opportunity to see the quintet as they hit the road this autumn supporting label mates ‘Truckfighters’.

In early 2014, Witchrider signed to Truckfighter's Fuzzorama Records and they now release their new album ‘Unmountable Stairs’ on Monday 3rd November. With eleven killer cuts of low-strung scuzzy alt-rock, the record contorts and burrows itself deep into your skull. Look out for new single ‘I’m Outta Breath’, and don’t miss the band on tour throughout October and November.
