Denver-based “stoner-rock” (or however you prefer to describe heavy, fuzzed out rock ‘n roll) band¬†Luna Sol¬†recently dropped their debut album¬†Blood Moon¬†via Slush Fund Recordings. Though it’s their first record in this formation, the band members are no strangers to the rock world. Fronted by¬†veteran singer and lead guitarist¬†Dave Angstrom¬†(Hermano, Supafuzz), Luna Sol also features¬†local Denver musicians:¬†drummer Pat Gill (The Feds, ‚Äô76 Pinto), guitarist/vocalist Shanda Kolberg (The Swanks) and bassist/vocalist Shannon Fahnestock (The Swindlers).

Keeping everything local, the album¬†was completed at¬†Sierra Estates in Colorado and the artwork was designed by celebrated Denver tattoo artist, Christel Perkins, of¬†Sol¬†Tribe. Adding layers to the band’s already rich history, Luna Sol recruited several star members of the¬†stoner and desert-rock communities: John Garcia (Kyuss, Hermano, Vista Chino) adds vocals on ‚ÄúDecember;” Dandy Brown (Hermano, Orquestra del Desierto) plays¬†bass on ‚ÄúDeath Mountain;‚ÄĚ Nick Oliveri (Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age) plays bass on ‚ÄúPretty Rotten;‚ÄĚ Greg Martin (The Kentucky Headhunters) contributes¬†slide guitar on ‚ÄúDeath Mountain;” Dean Smith (Supafuzz) plays bass on ‚ÄúBridges;‚ÄĚ Jason Groves (Supafuzz, Asylum on the Hill) plays bass on ‚ÄúIn the Shadows;‚ÄĚ and Dizzy Reed (Guns N‚Äô Roses) delivers a Hammond B3 performance on ‚ÄúYour War.‚ÄĚ

Blood Moon¬†is a pure headbanger’s delight. Growling vocals, driving bass lines, furious drumming and fierce riffs permeate the nine tracks, making the debut a must-have rock record. Highlight tracks include¬†the fiery “December,” sludgy “Operator” and sultry “Your War.”

Enjoy the interview with Angstrom and stream Blood Moon below!

Rocker Stalker: How did Denver become home? How did it influence your writing and overall sound?

Dave Angstrom:¬†My wife, Jen, is from Denver. I fell in love with the mountains when we were dating around 2007. We moved here in 2012, and I really dig it. The vibe of the city tucked under the mountains is amazing‚ÄĒthere‚Äôs so much to do creatively. ¬†Also, the folklore and the interesting stories of older times in the area really intrigues me. Colorado has definitely affected the stories in Luna Sol, but my Kentucky roots are alive an well in the riffs!

RS: How does Luna Sol differ from your previous projects and collaborations?

DA:¬†When I moved to Colorado, I made a decision to start a project that had no boundaries musically‚ÄĒone that can float and change as time passes and I grow older. Luna Sol is my first evolving band. I‚Äôm stoked about that. Playing with Shannon, Pat and Shanda is such an honor. They are amazing people and musicians‚ÄĒand writers, too. ¬†It‚Äôs a great vibe and we have all become close friends. We are really starting to become one, which rocks. My other band, Hermano, still exists and has its own thing. We are actually in the process of tracking a new Hermano album for this Summer, but Luna Sol is my main focus now and I dig it.

RS: You have several veteran players on various tracks of your new album, Blood Moon. How did you manage to get them on board? Did you write the songs with the guest appearances in mind?

DA:¬†I wish I was that talented! No, I write what comes naturally. If it feels good, and it sounds great through a vintage plexi Marshall, I‚Äôm in. I had a short list of some friends that I really wanted to be a part of this album. I asked Pat, Shanda and Shannon if they were cool with it, and they all agreed it would rock. So I looked at the list and thought of what might work for various badasses and sent emails or made calls begging my friends to be on the album with us. It was very cool of everyone to play on¬†Blood Moon¬†with us. We’re grateful.

RS:¬†What’s the story behind¬†Blood Moon?¬†What can new listeners expect?

DA:¬†I grew up in Kentucky. The Bible belt. There was lots of stuff about sinners and going to hell. It always seemed so intense to me, so when I heard that there were real blood moons happening while we were making the album and that, historically, Christians thought blood moons were a sign of the end times, I thought, ‚ÄúHey, that rocks‚ÄĒBlood Moon¬†it is!‚ÄĚ I love the visual of a real blood moon and the history is fun, too.

RS: Who are some other bands/artists we should be looking out for?

DA:¬†Oh, man, in Denver there are a ton of great bands‚ÄĒBronze, Throttlebomb, Chingaso, Horse, Black Lamb, Reno Divorce, Abrams, Smolder and Burn, Slim Cessna, also Greg Martin Band who are from Kentucky and amazing. Some others from California‚ÄĒHookers and Blow, John Garcia, Dandy Brown‚Ķ man, there are just too many to name or remember.

RS: If you did the scoring for a movie, what would the movie be about?

DA: Guitars. And vintage tube amps. And how they will someday save the world.

RS: In your years in the music arena, what has been the most rewarding? 

DA:¬†The most rewarding thing has been playing music with real people who aren‚Äôt looking for any rockstar BS. My favorite moments musically are all over the place‚ÄĒfrom playing Spain in front of 20,000 people all the way to sitting in my backyard learning a Dylan song under my wishing tree. The real moments are what matters. I‚Äôm thankful for those.

RS: Any upcoming tour dates? I’m hoping for NYC!
DA:¬†We‚Äôll be staying close to Colorado for now, so unfortunately no New York shows, but we’re working on a Fall European tour that should be badass!


Called “Music City” for a reason, Nashville is consistently pumping out¬†high caliber bands. One said band is garage/soul rock ‘n rollers Willie and the Giant.¬† Today, Rocker Stalker is excited to premiere the new track “Long Gone” from their forthcoming debut self-titled album, out April 21 on¬†Cumberland Brothers Music.

“Long Gone” offers up a punky punch from the start, kicking¬†out hip-shaking rhythms,¬† untethered¬†energy and classic boogie-woogie¬†drive. ¬†Willie and the Giants have already been named “New Band of the Week” by¬†The Guardian UK, which comes as¬†no surprise given the track’s dynamicism and catchy hooks that beg for multiple listens.

Take “Long Gone” for a whirl¬†below and make sure to get your copy of Willie and the Giant¬†on Tuesday! Check out the band on Facebook for upcoming news and pre-order the album HERE.

This is a moment I’ve been waiting for…for 5 months to be exact. Kickass rock duo Cadaver Dogs are out from Ohio on tour and are gracing the Big Apple with their presence TONIGHT at Arlene’s Grocery!

I’ve been in need of an epic rock show of Cadaver Dogs’ caliber, so it’s pretty much the¬†best news ever to have these boys back in town after their last visit to NYC for CMJ in October. ¬†Since then, the¬†pair ¬†have been rocking tunes from their¬†fiery 2014¬†album called¬†Too Much and have been planning new music and their “Spring Schwing” tour that is ¬†currently in full swing. ¬†You can check the poster below for more dates near you.

You won’t want to¬†¬†miss this evening’s show that is sure to be an ear-bleeding, face-melting good time! ¬†The shenanigans start at 10pm! See you there!


Hello blogosphere. It’s been a minute, but I’m glad to be back in time to let you know about an¬†amazing show happening tonight in New York City at The Bowery Ballroom.

Tonight, NY’s very own The London Souls celebrate their sophomore release, ¬†Here Come the Girls,¬†out today! If you don’t know these guys, you should start. The album encapsulates everything there is to¬†love about rock ‘n roll:¬†soulful vocals, hooky riffs, heartwarming ballads and face-melting drumming. The best part? There are 13 tracks to enjoy and worthy of multiple listens.

If you haven’t gotten tickets yet, grab ’em¬†HERE.

Another perk of tonight’s show is The Skins are opening! Doors at 8pm, show at 9pm.
