Reverb Drenched Magmaphonic High Energy Instrumental Surf Music

Unermüdlich seit 1998 bahnt sich die coole und atmosphärische Lava der Kilaueas eine Bahn durch sämtliche Clubs der Welt und unaufhaltsam speit dieser Vulkan immer neue und glühende Surfbrocken in die tanzende und schreiende Menge. 60er Jahre Instrumental Surf, wie man ihn aus Filmen wie Pulp Fiction kennt!
Der magmaphonische Sound der vier (manchmal fünf) gut gekleideten Herren lässt die Wellen der Surf-Seismographen wild ausschlagen. Melodien die man zwar kennt, aber nicht immer erkennt. Ein explosiver und erderschütternder Ausbruch von bekannten und neuen Instrumentals direkt aus dem heißen Berliner Underground. Laut, wild, sexy und tanzbar!

2014 fand die zweite 3-wöchige USA Tour statt und das vierte Albums "Wiki Waki Woooo" wurde veröffentlicht. Nun wird mit neuem Drummer Perzi jede Welle gesurft.
In Zusammenarbeit mit SurferJoe Lorenzo Valdambrini entstand 2016 die Tribute LP an die legendäre Surf-Band The Astronauts.
Im Sommer 2017 tourten sie erneut in Californien und momentan arbeiten sie an ihrem neuen Album, dass im Herbst 2018 erscheinen soll. Stay tuned ...

Nearly everyone who is interested in surf music listens to The Astronauts songs.
In 1963 The Astronauts were produced by RCA, in the middle of the surf era, and they collaborated with famous Lee Hazlewood who also composed some legendary surf songs, like Baja, The Hearse and Surf’s You Right.

But why there has never been an “Astronauts tribute album” or something similar? Today a lot of bands still have Astronauts’ songs in their set, but nobody has worked on a more complete “Astronauts project”. We have all the weapons we need: Fender Showman Amps, Reverb tanks, Jazzmaster and Jaguar guitars!

Lorenzo “Surfer Joe” Valdambrini, the International Surf Music Ambassador, is a well known musician in the modern surf scene, constantly on tour worldwide with his band spreading out the sound of traditional surf music. Lorenzo is also the co-producer of the Surfer Joe Summer Festival, today’s biggest surf music event.

The Kilaueas are a German band from Berlin active since 1998 dedicated to the traditional surf sound and acclaimed as one of the best surf combos for their compositions and their amazing live performances.

Since 2011 Lorenzo has played drums on some tours with the Kilaueas and they had the idea to do a tribute album to the Astronauts. In a few shows, where also Alex Faide (Los Twang Marvels) was added on third guitar, the extended Kilaueas played a long set of Astronauts’ tunes. The audience liked it a lot as it was really featuring that particular kind of sound impact!

The time has come to turn that idea into reality: with this album we want to honor The Astronauts for their great work and unforgettable surf sound!
