Guitarist Buddy Donner comments: “Ahhhhhhhh yeah! Freak Valley Festival 2019 was the absolute highlight of our three-month “Beer Wars Tour”. Journeying from the west coast of North America to Canada and all over Europe, nothing topped the vibe at Freak Valley Festival in Netphen, Germany. A sold-out gathering of 2500 people, but it felt like everyone knew each other. One massive Rock’n’Roll Family. It was an honor to share the stage with Corrosion of Conformity, Wolfmother, Brant Bjork, Dead Lord, DeWolff and so many more. We are quite excited to release a live version of our performance at this event, and most honored to be releasing this with the mighty Ripple Music! It’s been a long time coming!“
Sonic story tellers GREAT ELECTRIC QUEST are true merchants of Rock and Roll and Heavy Metal, taking listeners on a journey into an ever expanding world of captivating characters and allegories. Their sophomore album “Chapter II” brought their journey to flat out gargantuan proportions. High-flying solos, rhythms, and lyrics along with the production of Jeff Henson (Duel) and Tony Reed (Mos Generator) combine to bring a bigness and fullness of color that elevates this album into upper echelons. “Chapter II” was released in 2018, following which the band took over international stages with thunderous and dripping-hot performances at SXSW, Desertfest, Ripplefest, Freak Valley Festival and many more!
