Stoner band Space Coke have released their trippy new single Lightmare via The Ripple Effect. The song is taken from their album Lunacy which is out on January 14 2021.
The band comments: Lightmare is a song that really captures what I wanted to do with the occult vibe of the new release. Pagan ritual style lyrics and heavy fuzz guitar. This track is meant to be played loud on big speakers for maximum sonic invocation».
On January 14 2022 psychedelic rockers Space Coke will release their new album Lunacy.
The band comments: «We have an origin theme that a trip to space is a breakaway from a society gone mad. A planet that has built up civilizations based on power and oppression. Also mix that with the Space Coke scene from Cheech and Chong’s movie. Reno grew up in a diverse multicultural household and likes his music and musical companions to reflect that. Space Cook is aural magic to ground us in how small our planet and its affectations are in an immeasurable existence».
Lunacy is a Twilight Zone-like journey and will be both darker and more occult themed than previous albums. Each musician’s influences add to the complexity of the album and lend to something far beyond the traditional hallmarks of fuzz and bass. Reno Gooch pulls from his childhood of listening to Indian classical, as well as contemporary artists such as Sun Ra, Sonic Youth and Anthony Braxton, plus some of rocks most well-known godfathers: Black Sabbath, Mothers Of Invention and Jimi Hendrix.

If you’re ready to embark on a journey from which you may not return, Space Cook will be your guide. As they say: If the amp don’t smoke, it isn’t Space Coke.
