FREEDOM HAWK Hailing from the barrier dunes of Virginia, Freedom Hawk has been described as the East Coast’s answer to Fu Manchu when it comes to keeping it simple and thick. The band’s massive sun-drenched riffs, wild shredding leads and pounding drums are totally rocking. And then there are the utterly irresistible wailing Ozzy-like vocals. If only Ozzy himself would soar like this on Sabbath’s 13! Forget the Parental Advisory Explicit Lyrics warning; Freedom Hawk records should come with a sticker that says: “Caution! Contents may induce spontaneous air guitar heroics!” Not to mention the sudden urge to commandeer a dune buggy and start drag racing… Speaking of records: the band’s latest album, Holding On, released via Small Stone Records, purveyors of the finest riff rock around, is easily one of the best pure stoner rock LPs from the last couple of years. Freedom Hawk’s catchy songs are seriously badass, ranging from galloping blasts of hook and heavy hard rock to smoldering stoner dirges. Is that Freedom Hawk? TURN IT UP, MAN! SEEDY JEEZUS Formed in the sonic whirl of Melbourne’s gig scene in 2010, the band has taken music stages by storm, often leaving a trail of broken instruments, sweat soaked carpets, ringing ears and punters screaming for more. You are always guaranteed no two shows are alike as they often break into spontaneous jams which can either lead into a tripped out 70’s sphere once occupied by Pink Floyd or into the heavy early years of Black Sabbath. If you’re in need of some 70’s stoner space rock psychedelia then tune in, turn on and drop out... and get SEEDY!!
