Plainride (DE)


Plainride have slowly but steadily established themselves as one of the rising stars of Germany’s Heavy Rock underground. Never quite belonging to either the retro Stoner- nor the modern Hard Rock clique, the band has garnered a reputation for their sweat-drenched, high octane live shows as well as their eclectic musical repertoire – experimenting with violin, organ, and harmonica from an early stage in their career. Hailed by some as the German response to Clutch, Plainride’s songs frequently feature cryptic mythological references and fierce social criticism – wrapped in catchy riffs and big choruses reminiscent of Heavy Rock greats like Monster Magnet and Orange Goblin.
