Truckfighters Announce North American Tour In October

Lauded as "the best band that's ever existed" by Queens of The Stone Age's Josh Homme, Sweden's fuzz rock charmers TRUCKFIGHTERS are excited to announce a series of headlining dates later this fall across North America. Previously the band has been seen featured as one of the headlining acts of Psycho Fest 2015 and have performed over 700 shows throughout the world.

In continued support of their latest album, "V", the trio will kick off their upcoming tour on October 6 in Montreal, Quebec - with support provided by stoner doom duo Kinetic Yeti - until they land in Washington, D.C. on October 16. Full dates can be found in the above admat or listed below. Tickets are on sale now at Stay tuned for a further announcement with West Coast dates in the coming weeks!

Guitarist Niklas ‘Dango’ Källgren stated:

Did you know that?

Queen were originally called Smile. Singer Freddie Mercury came up with the new name for the band, later saying: "Years ago I thought up the name “Queen” … It’s just a name, but it’s very regal obviously, and it sounds splendid … It’s a strong name, very universal and immediate. It had a lot of visual potential and was open to all sorts of interpretations. I was certainly aware of gay connotations, but that was just one face of it."
