10,000 Russos are a formidable force within modern psychedelia; their industrial psych/post-punk has been charming fuzz-heads across the globe with its stomping, shamanic mantras and otherworldly krautrock slant. Following their debut album and recent split with The Oscillation, the Portuguese trio have released their huge second LP ‘Distress Distress’ on April 7 2017 via Fuzz Club Records.
This record was heavily promoted with two huge european tours (one of 50 gigs, other of 60) during the years of 2017 and 2018. Alongside sold out club gigs in 14 different european countries they have been headliners in festivals like Spacefest in Gdansk, Fuzz Club Fest in Eindhoven, Paredes de Coura in Portugal, Psych in Bloom 3D Fest in Stuttgart or Label Mates Fest in London.
10,000 Russos have once again transcended the boundaries of psychedelia as we know it today; their dark, droning noise is twisted, distorted and pushed to its limit. ‘Distress Distress’ is so ritualistic and industrial it see’s their usual post-punk sound – a primal and celestial mix of The Fall, NEU! and Spacemen 3 – pushed within an inch of techno territory with its abrasive, metronomic rhythms.
Since their debut self-titled LP,Russos have been touring Europe extensively and acquiring a cult-like following at a whiplash rate – their incredible performance at Liverpool Psych Fest was widely described as a stand-out set by numerous music publications and fuzz fiends-alike. With the entrance of second record‘Distress Distress’, the band are showing no sign of slowing down either – redefining psychedelia with every hiss of feedback.
10 000 Russos are taking 2019 to record and release a new álbum and to finally deliver their sonic krautrock in South-America first and then in Europe.
