Well, if you needed a reason not to jump off of a bridge until August, here’s one courtesy of Swedish fuzz frontrunners, Truckfighters. The trio — who released the unbelievably awesome Mania in 2009 — will be touring the US for the first time, hitting a smattering of easily-driven-to locales on the Eastern Seaboard and in the Midwest. Could the killer fuzz of Truckfighters be what finally revitalizes Detroit‘s failed economy? Only time can tell.
And, oh! Would you look at that? None other than Maple Forum alums Kings Destroy are playing the NYC show. As if life needed to be any better. Hit up Kings Destroy here and tell them how stoked you are to see them with Truckfighters.
Here are the confirmed dates, plus a trailer for the documentary that’s been made about the band, featuring the likes of Nick Oliveri, Josh Homme and others:
