WEDGE have been an integral part of the European underground rock scene since the release of their long out-of-print debut o n „Heavy Psych Sounds“. Over a short time the group managed to establish a steadily growing fan base by playing over 350 shows since 2014 (till Covid hit in early 2020) in numerous countries such as Spain, Italy, Portugal, France, Holland, Norway, Denmark, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Poland, Czech Republic, Belgium, England, Greece, Israel and of course Germany. This includes famous festivals such as Bukta Open Air, Desert Fest, Stoned from the Underground, Burg Herzberg Festival etc., and support gigs for bands such as Fu Manchu (US), Blues Pills (SE), Kadavar (DE), Orchid (US), Simo (US), to name but a few.
WEDGE was born into the spotlight in 2014. The trio was founded in Berlin by guitarist/singer Kiryk Drewinski (ex-Liquid Visions & ex-The Magnificent Brotherhood), drummer Holger “The Holg” Grosser & bassist/organist Dave Götz and named itself after the first stone tool of human history. Their sound is accordingly archaic, extremely effective, „made from solid rock“ and, when used correctly, causes fire.
WEDGE blends mainly elements of classic rock, kraut rock, 60s garage and some Heavy Psychedelic with a proper dose of joy while playing. Even before the band found its name, their first studio album was created and (initially planned only as a demo) was promptly released on the Italian label „Heavy Psych Sounds“ in November 2014. The LP was sold out after a short time and was very well received by the dancing as well as the writing kind and also gained some early radio airplay. Thus, the three multi-instrumentalists are often credited with refreshingly catchy songwriting that confidently outshines that of most of their peers in similar genres. The debut was rereleased in 2018.
The second album, „Killing Tongue“ followed in 2018, solidifying the band’s reputation for hitting just the right sweet spot between vintage analog rock tone and contemporary rock sound in their studio work. Their latest album „Like No Tomorrow“ was released in 2021 also on Heavy Psych Sounds and received exclusively great reviews in relevant rock magazines and media worldwide.
