Am Dienstag, 5. Juni 2018 kommen WEDGE zu mädchenradio ins Studio bzw. zwei von ihnen. Kiryk Drewinski hat mit seiner Band jetzt das zweite Album „Killing Tongue“ veröffentlicht. Die Band ist mit der „Killing Tongue European Tour“ auf Tour, der erste Teil der Tour war im Januar und Februar diesen Jahres, gefolgt vom zweiten Teil der Tour im März und April, wo sie u.a. in Italien, Spanien, Frankreich, Belgien & in Holland unterwegs waren.
Following the buzz of WEDGE’s debut, the group now unveils their eagerly awaited follow-up „Killing Tongue“ …and it truly kills! Although also deeply rooted in the rock’n’roll of the late 60s & early 70s, this album clearly is a strong progression from its precursor, presenting a multicolored spectrum of sounds and more diverse songwriting. Power trio-untypical arrangements and instruments like electric sitar, clavinet and harpsichord among others are accompanying especially some of the new psychedelia soaked tunes. But of course you can expect plenty of good old fuzz guitar and Hammond organ driven material as well.
Killing Tongue was recorded & mixed at LowSwing Studios in Berlin by Guy Sternberg and mastered by Brian Lucey at Magic Garden Mastering in California/USA. The release of Killing Tongue will be accompanied by the „Killing Tongue European Tour“ which will go down in two parts. Part one will see 24 Germany dates in January and February. It will be followed by part two in March and April with 26 dates in Italy, Spain, France, Belgium & The Netherlands.
On the german dates WEDGE will be supported by good Israeli friend Dor Koren and his psych rock group BIGFOOT. WEDGE‘s second full length was released on Heavy Psych Sounds Records in February 2018.
The debut album by Berlin’s heavy psych rockers WEDGE was released on Heavy Psych Sounds Records by the end of 2014. It was originally recorded to be only a demo, even before the group had agreed on a band name and before playing their first live show. It didn’t take long before Italian record label Heavy Psych Sounds offered Kiryk, Holg and Dave a deal to release the recordings as WEDGE’s debut record. The album contains seven original tunes, all wrote by singer/guitarist Kiryk with the exception of „’61 SG“ which stems from the hand of David the bass/organ player. Together with Kiryk’s catchy lyrics „’61 SG“ became something like the bands first „classic“ and was also chosen the groups first music video.
