From Trondheim, Norway, the trio BOKASSA with their distinctive hard rock, evident in their melodic riffs, catching the attention of critics, Crimson Riders in 2019, after their tour with Metallica, and nominees for the prestigious Spellemann-Award for Breakthrough of the Year in 2020. After the release of the album Molotov Rocktail, which we reported on at the time, Click Here, they will finally hit the road on a European tour with the Greeks "Planet of Zeus".


BOKASSA on their upcoming tour:

"We are beyond excited to finally be able to go out on this European tour with Planet Of Zeus and play live again. While we’ve been playing Xbox, binging Netflix and listening to every podcast in existence, we have also been starved for live music. Now we are back on the road - we´ve waited a long time for this and are so ready to finally bring Molotov Rocktail to the people. Expect two overly hyped bands that are stoked as hell to be playing live music again."



On Molotov Rocktail, vocalist and guitarist Jørn Kaarstad’s unmistakably raspy voice and crushing guitar riffs hit satisfyingly hard with the snappy drumming and fat bass tone of drummer Olav Dowkes and bassist Bård Linga. Songs like “Hereticules” effortlessly pull off the transition between melodic choruses and punishing breakdowns, while the title track “Molotov Rocktail” is two minutes of pure stoner punk paradise with its dense songwriting and dynamic production. The album closer’s intro riff (“Immortal Space Pirate 3 Too Old For This Sith”), meanwhile, could be lifted straight off a classic BEHEMOTH album. BOKASSA’s daring but cohesive tightrope act of singalongs and neck breaking grooves is highly contagious – mixed and mastered by Machine (CLUTCH, THE BRONX, EVERY TIME I DIE), the powerhouse from Trondheim misses no chance to entrance the listener with every second of runtime!
