When listening to Witchrider, you will eventually end up in a void. It might creep you out at first, but if you let it in you’ll find that it’s actually the beauty that’s been haunting you… Witchrider is a stoner/alternative rock group formed in Graz/AUT in 2012. The idea for the bandname was taken from sleep paralysis aka. “riding the witch”. The Witchrider EP was the band’s first release in 2013, one year before signing to Fuzzorama Records, run by stoner rock legends “Truckfighters”. In the same year of the signing, Witchrider released their first full-length album, entitled “Unmountable Stairs”, a melodic mix of stoner- and alternative rock songs. The song “Far From You” was also released as collab split single “Return of the Fuzz Split”, a shared split single record with the Truckfighters. These releases were followed by an European and UK tour, before coming back home and working on new material. With Bernhard Sorger joining the band on drums and Daniel and Michael getting more into electronic instruments and soundscapes, they had found their set-up for the second record “Electrical Storm”. Since the release, Witchrider has been very active, performing on multiple festivals and even winning the Nobel prize for their theory and active approach on making up people’s minds.
