biography

THE GURU GURU have been happily dealing in Borderline Rock. Imagine: lead vocals wearing a multicolored strait-jacket, haunted by feverish guitars and a tormented rhythm section. 

While influences are drawn from the likes of METZPere UbuDeerhoofThe Jesus LizardThe Mars Volta Andy Kaufman, the indie-math- psycho-noise rulebook is torn apart, resulting in erratic songs that somehow seem to develop into wriggling earworms.

Praised for their live performances, THE GURU GURU is a must-see… With palpable, electric energy oozing from the stage, vocalist  Tom Adriaenssens balances on the verge of theatrical psychosis.

Touring  highlights  include: ArcTanGent (UK), Portals (UK), Ment (SLO), Monkey Week(ESP), Rock Herk (BE), Sziget (HU), Pukkelpop (BE) , etc… They played +- 150 domestic and international shows (France, Spain, UK, Reunion Island, Germany, Switzerland, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia) in the last 2 years.

After releasing a promising EP, 7 inch, 10 inch (split record with fierce trio Brutus) and their debut album ‘PCHEW’, they released their 2nd full album ‘POINT FINGERS’, produced by Wouter Vlaeminck (Raketkanon, Kapitan Korsakov, etc.), mixed by David Bottrill (King Crimson, Tool, Coheed and Cambria, etc.) and mastered by Heba Kadry (Chelsea Wolfe, Deerhunter, Lightning Bolt, etc.).

New album ‘Point Fingers’ out now.
