Doctor Cyclops Announce European Tour Dates Starting Nov. 24

Beginning later this month and running into December, Italian boogie trio Doctor Cyclops will head out on a round of European tour dates supporting their latest release, Local Dogs (review here), which came out this past Spring on Heavy Psych Sounds. The three-piece are no strangers to the road, and this time they’ll hit up Italy, Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands and Slovenia before they’re done, covering a decent swatch of ground with a couple nights off that may or may not get filled in as they go.

If you didn’t hear it, Local Dogs is streaming in full below, and its take on classic heavy rock comes balanced against impulses drawn from NWOBHM poise and gallop. I haven’t had the pleasure myself, but it seems like a combo that would go pretty well on stage. Doctor Cyclops had a documentary out a couple years back, if you’ll recall, that was also a pretty solid advertisement for showing up.

Doctor Cyclops is a seventies-styled power trio playing heavy rock music inspired by a vintage sound, eldest son of glorious Black Sabbath and other more underground heroes from the 70s and early 80s as Truth and janey, Sir Lord Baltimore, Captain Beyond or Witchfinder General. Even later and more modern references are warm-vintage styled ones: Witchcraft, Graveyard, Firebird, Cathedral, Spiritual Beggars just to say some.

Their discography includes one self produced Ep-CD “The Doctor Cyclops” (2010), and two full length albums, “Borgofondo” (2012) and “Oscuropasso” (2014), both released by the German heavy psychdelic label World in Sound.

The band is active since 2008 and toured Europe several times, sharing the stage with bands such as Firebird, Blood Ceremony, Siena Root, Colour Haze, Stoned Jesus, The Grand Astoria and many more. Doctor Cylops also took part to important festivals such as Freak Valley (2012) and Red Smoke (2016).
