THE KYLE GASS BAND “Thundering Herd” storms on September 2nd


The Kyle Gass Band returns! Heavily armed with a bunch of new songs from their upcoming album ‘Thundering Herd‘ the band will play a full European tour visiting Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Benelux and UK. The supergroup from Los Angeles certainly earned their ‘Road Chops’ playing more than 50 shows on the continent in 2015 alone and go big this time, with more animals, broader mutton chops and fronting Mr. Kyle Gass (Tenacious D) himself. Voice phenomenon Mike Bray and guitar virtuoso John Konesky are aboard as well as Jason Keene, probably the best photographer ever to play bass guitar, not to forget the talented Tim Spier, Drummer, Michael Jackson doppelganger and eye candy in one.


SPV Steamhammer will release the brand new Kyle Gass Band album titled ‘Thundering Herd’ in time to launch the tour on September 02nd as a digipak version, LP version and download. The 11 track beast was produced by the Kyle Gass Band in collaboration with John Spiker (Filter) and the result: ‘It’s a face melting classic rock album. We tried not to limit ourselves creatively this time around.’, says guitarist John Konesky.  


Responsible for mastering was Maor Applebaum (Faith No More, Sepultura, Halford), who had a clear vision for the sound of the album: ‘I went for an organic sound that is not slammed or pushed too hard and has a cohesive and Vinyl Style sound to make it feel as a continuous flow of the album.


The incredible hand-illustrated artwork by designer Will Fugman ( took 3 month from draft to completion and has already been revealed in the artwork commentary clip.

When my old buddy Kenn Jensen asked me if I wanted to contribute to the new site he had created, then called, I didn't hesitate. My love for metal music was and is great. I wrote my first review during the summer of 2004 (Moonspell's 'Antidote' album). In 2015, I took over the editor-in-chief role.
