Once in a lifetime: DIESEL BOY in Munich!
Diesel Boy is an American punk rock band from Santa Rosa, California, United States. They were formed in 1993 and were active until 2002. In 2022, they announced they would release a new album for #SBÄM in 2023. They have a 7" on #FatWreckChords, 4 full-length albums released on #HonestDon's Records and a split EP with the band #Divit that was released on #ColdfrontRecords.
Shöck was born in 2015 in Bilbao (Basque Country), a year after Micky moved from his hometown, Milan, and joined musicians from bands like Mundo Matadero or Destierro. In 2019 Nando, from Batec, joined the project from Catalan lands putting his guitar at the service of Shöck.
After the first album (2018) and the national and european presentation tour, in 2020, a few days before the beginning of the confinements, the band recorded the second álbum “Alta traición”, also in The Rockstudios, with Carlos Creator at the controls. This time there are 10 songs, following the same theme of social protest in the lyrics and the same melodic line in the voice but with more force and speed in the rhythms and a heavier sound in the guitars.
In 2022, a third album is released in EP format, shared with the german band #RastaKnast. This record includes 2 songs of each band, reflecting the most melodic and melancholic side of the band on the one hand, and the most raw and social for another.
