Vista Chino

As discussed at InvisibleOranges, Vista Chino is John Garcia and Brant Bjork (both of Kyuss), who formed the band after the dissolution of Kyuss Lives. Mike Dean of Corrosion of Conformity sits in on four string for the tour, making the band a bit of a supergroup. The "new" band is readying their new LP, Peace?, for release on September 3 via Napalm Records. Stream the new track "Dragona Dragona" below.

Alongside the announcement of the new LP comes dates, and lots of 'em. The band will embark on a North America tour in celebration of Peace? that will include a stop in NYC at Bowery Ballroom on September 26 with Black Pussy. Tickets go on sale Friday (7/12) at noon with an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday (7/10) at noon.

Interesting at first, but then I noticed the Kyuss member was John Garcia, who was the worst part of the band, IMHO. Loved the music, couldn't stand his singing.

Agreed. Vocals and lyrics are not good. They should stick to doing the old stuff.

This shit is on par with those bozos doing Flag, except Kyuss shouldn't even be in the same sentence as Black Flag. They vocals were ALWAYS the wackest, cliche rocknroll nonsense. Their best tunes were sans vocals. This shit is sad.

How anyone could say this isn't amazing couldn't like Kyuss.

The attempts in the comments expressing disdain for Vista Chino, are projections of the punishment their lives are for them.

This fucking rocked and Mike Dean being involved live makes it that much more interesting.

not amazing.

"How anyone could say this isn't amazing couldn't like Kyuss."

There is a reason why I don't play my Kyuss CDs often: Garcia's singing.

I love how one man's singing can make insecure hipsters so painfully aware of their inadequacies. John Garcia seems sincere and fun. He even has his own thong song. It's about how hipsters feel discomfort from their undergarments when exposed to fun without pretense.

I think Josh is totally in the right to sue them because of the name. It's just a fake of a burried legend.

This is beyond great. Fuck the haters. No one understood Kyuss then, no one understands this shit now. However in ten years people will be talking about how great this is and how much they love it… just like they did with Kyuss. Not everyone can appreciate greatness at first glance.
