THE GURU GURU has been happily dealing in deep express art rock since 2012, combining feverishly angular guitars with off-kilter, poly-rhythms all complimented by erratic and unhinged vocals.

While influences are drawn from the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead, The Mars Volta, SOULWAX, The Jesus Lizard & Andy Kaufman, the indie-math-psycho-noise rulebook is torn apart, resulting in erratic songs that somehow seem to develop into wriggling earworms. The band cannot be placed into one genre.

The recurring theme of new album 'Make (Less) Babies' is about how we are gradually destroying our planet and about the major role that our favorite commodity, money, plays in this. Together with the planet we are slowly destroying ourselves and we are doing it against our better judgement. This time, singer Tom The Bomb deliberately chose not to start writing until he knew what he wanted to talk about. For example, he often watched the news before he started writing instead of just letting the texts flow from his pen. It is because of this that the album has acquired a socially critical undercurrent.

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

THE GURU GURU are unstoppable and keep pushing their limits. Nothing is impossible.
