Desert Mountain Tribe
Desert Mountain Tribe released second album Om Parvat Mystery on June 1st 2018 and the group recently completed a headline tour in mainland Europe and the UK in October.
The band is currently engaged in Europe as main tour support for Peter Murphy ‘s 40 anniversary of Bauhaus ft. David J.
Desert Mountain Tribe got off to a flying start back in 2014 with early standout track ‘Coming Down’, which was featured on Reverb Conspiracy Volume 2, a release double-headed by both Fuzz Club Records and Austin Psych Fest.
The band signed album deals with Membran (Europe) and Metropolis Records (Nth and Sth America) in 2015 following an invitation to participate with the Converse Rubber Tracks recording project in London, where the band produced a handful of cool and well-received demos.
Debut album, Either That Or The Moon was released in the spring of 2016 to positive reviews from UK publications such as Shindig, Classic Rock, Louder Than War, Drowned In Sound and The Arts Desk.
Desert Mountain Tribe’s last single of 2017, the epic ‘Interstellar¹ taken from their 2016 debut was edited down from its original nine minute duration and boasted a superb video directed by Daniel Turner of Sound & Colour, which won a Video of the Year accolade from the UK site Live4Ever and also US magazine Pow:
Subsequent releases have included two digital EP¹s, If You Don¹t Know Can You Don¹t Know Köln and Live At St. Pancras Old Church, plus the Youth mixed single Enos In Space (Top Of The World).
The band spent much of 2018 on the road, with new bass player Matthew Holt joining the group in the autumn.
