Kung Fu Necktie

High Reeper

Formed in 2016, High Reeper is made up of Zach Thomas, Justin Di Pinto,

Andrew Price, Pat Daly and Shane Trimble. Originally started as just a studio

band, it rapidly became apparent that these songs were meant to be heard live

and loud.

The band made their debut in the Philly/DE stoner rock scene in early 2017

with success which was followed up by the recording of their self-titled debut in

May. With a sound deeply rooted in modern stoner rock while still giving a nod

to the earliest Sabbath records, High Reeper's first offering is driven by

pounding rhythms, thick guitars and soaring, screeching vocals.

For their second record, the addition of Di Pinto on drums helped focus their

sound in an even more powerful direction. The result is a new record with riffs

that are even heavier than before that explore new directions, including the

ballad “Apocalypse Hymn”.

After a successful 2018 European tour that included Desertfest Berlin, High

Reeper toured Europe two more times in 2019 playing over 60 shows while

visiting ten countries including appearances at Desertfest London and Belgium

and several other festivals. They return once again to Europe in June of 2021 to

hit the festival circuit.


YATRA is a brutally heavy power trio from Maryland, USA, consisting of Dana Helmuth on Guitar and Vocals, Maria Geisbert on Bass, and Sean Lafferty on Drums. Since their origin in 2018, YATRA has released three full length albums, with much critical acclaim, including the 2019 Death Ritual, 2020 Blood Of The Night, and the 2020 All Is Lost. YATRA has toured the US and Europe relentlessly.
