“These guys are true rock stars. (…) Tyler sings like he’s inherited the mantle of Saint Jim Morrison himself, while guitarist Buddy Donner sounds like he’s possessed by Jimmy Page.” describes Doomed & Stoned editor. With “Live at Freak Valley”, GREAT ELECTRIC QUEST are set to establish their mighty reign over the heavy rock underground for good.

Clocking in at one hour, the band delivers with maestria those skyscraping vocals, epic solos, proto-metal grooves and jammy turnarounds they are known for: electricity instantly fills the air while the crowd jubilates… You’ve just been thunderstruck by the sheer awesomeness of GREAT ELECTRIC QUEST.

Guitarist Buddy Donner comments: “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!“
