Margin Walker Presents:
KARMA TO BURN (US)
Karma to Burn, the kings of the ultimate riffs without compromises. Rock
played the way it’s supposed to be. The band originally based in
Morgantown, West Virginia is not just playing great songs; no they’re
living it on and off stage. There are no samples or constructed stage
shows, only Rock’n’Roll, sweat and dirt. It’s a bit like the famous phrase
“if it’s too loud your too old”And it even gets better Karma to Burn will be
on tour with Rob Irish, also know as bass player of the famous “The Exploited”
The band has shared stages with Metallica, Kyuss, Smashing Pumpkins,
Queens of the Stone Age and many more, the list is endless but they
have never prostituted themselves. Record companies have tried to force
them to use a singer to sell more records. The answer to this is usually
“FUCK YOU”. Of course with the right marketing campaign and some
radio friendly songs they could hit the big stages but honestly, who wants
that. Karma to Burn is the Rock’n’Roll we want to hear in the 21st century
where you can meet the band after the concert at the bar to have some
Hard & heavy blues rockers Desert Storm bring gigantic riffs, sludge and blues grooves. In 2010 they released their debut album ‘Forked Tongues’ on Buried In Smoke records.
The five piece operation based in Oxford first formed in 2007, hitting the local rock scene with full force. Now having torn up multiple cities across the UK and festivals such as the mighty Bulldog Bash & DesertFest (Camden); on top of an 8 date UK tour with stoner rock cult legends Karma to Burn and support slots to the likes of Orange Goblin, Taint, Black Spiders, Turbowolf Weedeater, Zoroaster, CKY, Winnebago Deal, Firebird they're well underway spreading the NOISE.
In April this year Desert Storm released their follow up to ‘Forked Tongues’ entitled ‘Horizontal Life’ (Blindsight records/Code 7 Distibution) recorded & mixed by Jimmy ‘Evil’ Hetherington, mastered by Billy Anderson (Melvins, High On Fire, Orange Goblin, EyehateGod etc).
The band already have UK tours lined up with Honky (Ft JD Pinkus of Butthole Surfers) in March & Peter Pan Speedrock (NL) In Sept, with dates planned in Europe too.
