After ten years of powerful psychedelic riffcraft, the instrumental juggernaut that is Mothertrucker have finally crafted their magnum opus: “The Power of Independent Trucking”. Combining the hard riffing of Sabbath and Kyuss, the quiet menace of Slint and Mogwai and the wild freak-outs of Earthless, The Power of Independent Trucking is a 6 track, 30 minute hellride into the heart of sweet oblivion. Thick dirty distortion, menacing atmospherics, head nodding tempo changes, rewarding climaxes...this release has it all!!
Over the course of their existence, Mothertrucker have shared the stage with the likes of Boris, Mono, Baroness, Jesu, Grails, Red Sparowes, Aereogramme and Truckfighters and kicked off their tenth anniversary year with a devastating performance at the 2012 Supersonic Festival. This album marks the dawn of aglorious new chapter for the band who are hungry to spread their love of the riff far and wide and add to this illustrious list of comrades in rock.
Once you have found yourself trapped in the headlights of the Mothertrucker, you can but only lay back, stretch your sack & make peace with your maker.
