The Cherry Bar co-owner and booker James Young reflects, “After Fu Manchu last year we talked about how we could possibly top that. So, we decided to bring out the two best stoner rock acts on the planet, both of whom have never played here before, and to significantly lower our ticket price too. Cos that’s how Cherry rolls…”
The monoliths of modern Stoner Rock, Unida from the Californian desert and Truckfighters from Sweden, playing Australia for the first time as the co-headliners.
Unida features Kyuss lead singer John Garcia. After the original demise of Kyuss. Unida were together from 1998 to 2003, which included the release of the seminal stoner classic album 'Coping With The Urban Coyote.' Unida reformed in 2012 and Australian hard rock fans have only dreamed that Garcia and Unida would be seen on stage here. CherryRock013 makes stoner dreams come true.
Many agree that Truckfighters ‘Gravity X’ is the greatest stoner rock album of the past twenty years. And it comes from Orebro, Sweden! In the awesome 2011 Truckfighters ‘Fuzzomentary’ documentary film, Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme reflected upon Truckfighters with these exact words, “The best band that ever existed.”
