Kyuss 1992: Josh Homme, Brant Bjork, John Garcia, Nick Oliveri
Kyuss

Is Kyuss ready for a reunion? The influential desert rock band which featured Josh Homme and Nick Oliveri in their pre-Queens of The Stone Age role is set to tour Europe as "Kyuss Lives". The 2011 incarnation will not feature Homme though, but will reunite vocalist John Garcia, bassist Nick Oliveri and drummer Brant Bjork. Guitarist Bruno Fevery, who recently played Kyuss songs with John Garcia on a tour called "Garcia Plays Kyuss", will play the Homme role. The "Garcia Plays Kyuss" tour hit both Hellfest and Roadburn. Both Oliveri and Bjork played with Garcia at the Hellfest gig. Josh meanwhile is keeping busy with his three current projects: Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, and comedy.

Speaking of Roadburn, the 2011 version of the Holland festival will welcome the great Godflesh (!) who will perform Streetcleaner in its entirety and in order, including the Tiny Tears EP? The announcement comes on the heels of other recent (and notable) additions to the festival including Swans (who just added some new dates), Evoken (who are playing NYC on 11/13), Dragontears, Carlton Melton, Yakuza, Lonely Kamel, Ghost, Liturgy, Winterfylleth, Zoroaster, Naam, and many others. Godflesh reunited to play Hellfest this year.

All "Kyuss Lives" dates, the full Roadburn lineup and some videos are below...

I already preferred Hommes vocals to John Garcia's.

Listened to a few clips, not a fan. Sounds like an Audioslave ripoff if you ask me. Not surprised the guitar player left this group to play with Queen.

1:25: You might be one of the least informed, stupidest people on Earth if you think they ripped off Audioslave.

1:39 - you are a complete moron if you took 1:25 seriously!

1:25 - Hilarious!

@1:35, I think it's a Joke. Also has anyone realized how awful a vocalist/lyricist John Garcia is? I like everything else but he kept me from fully getting into the band!

1:25-absolute idiot!

Too bad Homme and Oiveri seem destined never to share the same stage again. There was a good article in the Voice awhile back when the reissue of Rated R came out comparing them to Lennon/McCartney. A bit of a stretch maybe, but somewhat appropriate. The contrast between those two talents made for some incredible music over the years.

Info on the NY Evoken show?

Were discussing Kyuss on here and you bring up some shitty band called Evoken. Go F yourself

Once you compare a band to The Beatles, you instantly lose ALL credibility!
