This was bound to happen, I suppose. Given all the legal drama surrounding the Kyuss Lives! 3/4 Kyuss reunion of John Garcia, Brant Bjork, Nick Oliveri (who announced that he’d returned to the band yesterday) and guitarist Bruno Fevery, a name change seems like the easiest way to solve the problem. The people who are going to see them know who they are regardless, so yeah, Vista Chino it is. Fucking a.
Now they can move forward and put out a new record. They may not have the Kyuss moniker, but it seems pretty safe to assume whatever these dudes put their minds and hearts into is going to wind up with that desert spirit. Here’s the news:
