GENRE Psychedelic / Rock / Shoegaze
HOME Bordeaux, France

Julien Pras (Guitar, Vocals) / Jimmy Kinast (Bass, Vocals) / Matgaz (Drums)


Considered as one of the greats of the European stoner rock scene, MARS RED SKY have gained international recognition thanks to a unique sound imprint based on thick infectious grooves and melodic and aerial guitar riffs. This is truly a one of a kind experience, wrapped up by Julien Pras’ ethereal vocals, Matgaz’ powerful rhythms and Jimmy Kinast’s pachydermic bass lines. Somewhere between doom metal and 70’s psyche pop, the Mars Red Sound intrigues in the first place, after what it irremediably attracts the masses to celebrate this cosmic ritual of solar burning fuzz and reverberated atmospheres.


Driven by the huge success of their eponymous debut record, which was recorded in Spain’s mystic Bardenas desert and released in 2011 (then sold to more than 3,500 copies), the Bordelais are quickly invited to play on the largest European stages with Kyuss Lives!, Dinosaur Jr, Sleep, as well as renowned festivals such as Eurockéennes de Belfort (FF), Roadburn (NL), London and Berlin Desertfests, Sziget Festival (HUN), SXSW (USA), leading them to play in more than 20 countries. With their incredibly heavy and hypnotic performances, MARS RED SKY are undoubtedly considered as one of the most thrilling live acts among the international stoner rock scene. In 2012, they pair with French doom metal monsters Year Of No Light to release a 3-tracks split record, which gets sold out in a blink of an eye.


The release of their last EP « Be My guide » in the spring of 2013 prophetically opens the path for an extensive tour across Europe, then across the Atlantic Ocean for a few exciting series of gigs in Latin America, where they record the tracks for their second LP "Stranded in Arcadia", released on April 28th (Europe) & June 10th (Usa) 2014! With « Stranded In Arcadia », the trio takes its music to a brand new level: heavier than ever, this record embarks you further into their very own world of fuzz and psychedelia, a journey to a wondrous imaginary place called Arcadia.
