Legendary California rock band KYUSS LIVES! — featuring original KYUSS members John Garcia, Nick Oliveri and Brant Bjork along with guitarist Bruno Fevery — has issued a statement in response to the lawsuit filed by former band member Josh Homme over the use of the KYUSS name.

“We are both shocked and saddened that our friend and one time band mate has chosen to file a lawsuit against us, especially after having positive discussions since our reformation,” said John Garcia and Brant Bjork.  “We look forward to resolving this private matter behind closed doors and moving forward with work on our new album and connecting with our amazing, loyal fans.” (more…)

Former KYUSS bassist Scott Reeder has commented on the reaction to the news that he and fellow ex-KYUSS member Josh Homme (guitar) have filed a federal lawsuit against other former KYUSS members John Garcia (vocals) and Brant Bjork (drums) alleging “trademark infringement and consumer fraud” over the use of the KYUSS name.

Garcia, Bjork and ex-KYUSS bassist Nick Oliveri reunited for shows last year under the KYUSS LIVES! banner, in which they were joined by guitarist Bruno Fevery. The band has since toured on both sides of the Atlantic and is said to be currently working on a live album for a late 2012 release. There are also tentative plans for the group to record a brand new studio CD. (more…)

Introducing… Head For The Sun

We was formed in October, 2011, in Budapest, Hungary. In december we got a chance to record our concert for almost free, so we did it, however at that time we had been playing together only 2 months. Fortunately the songs come easy for our songwriter, Rico.

Ok, so what do you get when you reincarnate Kyuss (MK1) and place them on the other side of the earth? The results may surprise you but Head For The Sun would probably be that band. They’ve got some kick ass stoner/desert rock vibes going. They have a FREE live show to download (Bandcamp player below). Check out their cover of “Pilot the Dune” by Slo Burn on the video below.
