Sasquatch is a band. They tend to sip on influences from 70's metal, rock, and psychedelia. They dig Black Sabbath, Melvins, Soundgarden, Corrosion of Conformity, Mountain, and Grand Funk Railroad. Their songwriting approach is clear-cut; keep the focus on the hook.
The band was born in Philadelphia in 2000 and moved to Los Angeles in 2001 after Keith Gibbs (guitar, vox) joined up with Detroit natives Rick Ferrante (drums) and Clayton Charles (bass). Upon Clayton’s departure in 2007, the guys recruited Chicagoan Jason Casanova (Behold! The Monolith, Tummler) to join the fold. We arrive at 2016 and Sir Craig Riggs (Roadsaw, Kind, Antler) can also be found shellacking the kit while sipping Pinot Noir on select occassions.
The band’s music has been featured on a variety of movies, television shows, and video games including the reissue of Clerks, FX’s original hit series Sons of Anarchy, A&E's Dog The Bounty Hunter, Jersey Girl, CW’s The Supernatural, and MTV’s Viva La Bam, Bam’s Unholy Union, and Rob and Big, NHL 2005, American Chopper, and Monster Garage.
After shaking some walls with not one, but two, closely packed studio albums (the self-titled debut and "II") on Small Stone Records in 2004 and ’06, the power trio went subterranean until 2010 before resurfacing with a new lineup and propulsive third opus, "III".
The band’s latest album “IV” debuted in late 2013 followed by extensive touring in Europe and the US over the course of 2014 and 2016. What fans hear is arguably the gents most mature, inspired and diverse song-set to date, chunked with both heartwarmingly familiar and totally unexpected compositional twists, even super-trippy moments – but all of it heavy on the heavy, as they say…always. Unprecedented attention was also devoted to spinning new yarns out of those evergreen rock and roll stories about love lost, hate found, relationships built and lives trashed, homes wrecked, etc.
In the fall of 2015, Cargo Records Germany released the complete Sasquatch back catalog on vinyl for the first time in Europe (I, II, and III). Look for the band to be gearing up for its fourth European tour in 2017 and placing the finishing touches on their follow-up to “IV”. All’s fair in Love and Doom.
When it comes to Hommage's song writing it is best described as carefree and unconventional. The Band is easy going and far from commercialising their music to make it hip for the masses. Intuition forms the structure of their music. It's
captivating, simple, touching!
!!! Buzzword: authentic
It's simple and touching at the same time!
The Band' kick-ass rock is straight forward and you can feel that they have been playing
together in various bands and formations for the past 10 years. Extensive understanding
and an incredible sound that is hard to capture on paper.
The songs are characterised by consistent hypnotic tunes. They suck you in, move through your spine until you can't stop nodding your head and moving your feet to the
Hommage don't direct their songs to specific role models, it rather is an attitude towards life, the most convincing, composed and natural mosaic of sound:
As dry as bone 70s Desert/Grunge Rock.
Hommage stands for refreshingly authentic rock , destructive and sometimes elegantly close to pop. VVK
