Leader of Bordeaux underground scene since 15 years, Chocolat Billy finally join U-Turn roster ! The band sound is always exploring new boundaries; all instruments are shared, mistreated with howling distortion and caressed like a soft round bass. The result is the band’s very personal approach at the crossroads of many genres: rock, noise, experimental, pop, world music. Chocolat Billy’s songs are collectively written and leave open spaces for improvisation and elasticity, utterly, present in their live shows (over 300 played so far).
Ty Segall is back with brand new album Harmonizer. Without warning anyone, Ty Segall has launched surprising new masterpiece, first full lenght for Drag City since 2019. It’s already out digitally but you will have to wait October to get it physically.
Freedom Band have contribute to the album such as his wife Denee Segall, who wrote the lyrics for and sang lead vocals on “Feel Good,” co-wrote “Waxman,” and did the album’s photography and artwork.
Binic Folk Blues Festival announce micro-edition of its festival called La Cathedrale. Bands from U-Turn roster such as E.T Explore Me, Reverend Beat-Man and Roy and The Devil’s Motorcycle will perform at La Rougnouse spot (usually used as camping site for music fans), get your tickets HERE .
For all those who wouldn’t have the chance to have Health Pass that government request to be able to host you in complete safety, a stand with antigenic test will be at your disposal on site.

Meatbodies Announce New Album 333
Los-Angeles based band Meatbodies, led by Chad Ubovich (Fuzz and Mikal Cronin’s band), have announced brand new album. It’s called 333 and it’s out September 3 via In the Red Records. Check out latest single “Reach for the Sunn” below. The band has also announced a US tour, show dates below.
“These lyrics are dark, but I think these are things that a lot of people are feeling and going through,” Ubovich said in a statement. “Here in America, we’re watching the fall of U.S. capitalism, and 333 is a cartoonish representation of that decline.”

Acid Dad is now part of U-Turn family, welcome guys ! European tour dates are coming soon while they have already announced US tour with Frankie & The Witch Fingers, check new single “Searching” below :
By the time the band played its first gig in late 2018 at the opening of Nola’s ManRay Records, the songs had multiplied and the members of the newly christened Silver Synthetic had become genuine rock & roll craftsmen. In a world that doesn’t seem capable of swaying, Silver Synthetic’s self-titled debut shakes and boogies.

Welcome to Grave Flowers Bongo Band !
“With a darkish, distorted sound, Grave Flowers Bongo Band blends the scuzzy psychedelia of the late 60s with the uncooked energy of the scene that birthed the primary punks, then washing it within the sun-kissed leather-based sheen of contemporary L.A.” Castle Face Records
Los Angeles’ Grave Flowers Bongo Band’s sophomore LP “Strength of Spring” is an inverted pyramid balanced on the headstock of an acoustic guitar, a rainbow painted in campfire smoke, an endless staircase circling into the clouds. That acoustic guitar, perfectly captured here by Ty Segall’s excellently sere and close mic’d production, plays skeleton to these conjurors woolly grooves, and singer Gabe Flores’ thousand-yard moan keeps us guessing as to exactly where this wildebeest is headed. He pinions these far out tunes, which burst generously with shit-hot guitar leads, Stoogeseque sax squalls, and a gaggle of great eight-armed drum fills, with a flinty wrist-flicking heartbeat as the band turns from whimsy to nimble riffery on a dime, following that pied-piper six string jangling down many lovely rabbit-holes of melody and exploration. It’s obvious these guys play together a lot (the lineup shares two members with acclaimed space rockers Hoover III to boot) and the telepathy on display here is synapse-snappy. Coursing throughout is that note-pad filling, lighter raising, undefinable black magic that feels so rare these days….we dig it mightily and we think you will too, it’s out on Castle Face Records April 30th.
Reigning Sound is back in our roster ! The Memphis legend rock band led by Greg Cartwright, have announced their first studio LP since 2014. Hear the new song “A Little More Time” from the new record A Little More Time With Reigning Sound.
“Reigning Sound joined the Merge roster in 2014 with Shattered. The band’s principal songwriter/member is Greg Cartwright, who’s been leading the shifting cast of characters since 2001. You may be familiar with some of the band’s work, as this album is preceded by five studio efforts as well as numerous EPs and live records. Or perhaps some of Greg’s other projects have been on your musical radar: The Oblivians, Parting Gifts, Compulsive Gamblers, 68 Comeback, Deadly Snakes, Detroit Cobras. ” Merge Records
Wand Leader, Cory Hanson, Joins U-Turn Roster for French Tours. He will be on tour in 2022.
“Cory Hanson has led the Los Angeles psych-rock band Wand for the past seven years, and they just released their Laughing Matter album last year. But Hanson also makes music without his band. Hanson released his solo debut The Unborn Capitalist From Limbo in 2016, and he got together with his friend Ty Segall to drop a couple of benefit tracks earlier this year. Next year, Hanson will return with his second solo LP.
Hanson’s new album is called Pale Horse Rider, and it promises a way-out take on country-rock. First single “Paper Fog” is a warm, strummy chug that slowly piles on more and more spacey effects. Hanson’s voice is a relatively plainspoken tenor, but his guitar aims for the astral plane.” Stereogum
Featuring his majesty’s dream line up of Bordeaux’s finest rock‘n’roll lifers, The Magnetix and Fredovitch (from King Khan & The Shrines), King Khan Unlimited’s new slab of punk rock is chock full of stinging social critique delivered with wit and a wry smile. Their first single “Pigment of Your Imagination” tackles the complicated topic of pigment as related to the tidal wave of racism all over the world. “Pigment of Your Imagination” also features Eamon Sandwith from The Chats professing his love for, uh, Shea Butter amongst other things…
A few words from His Majesty: “Here comes King Khan’s first offering off of the new King Khan Unlimited Opiate Them Asses LP! ‘Pigment of Your Imagination’ is a song about the fragile world we live in and how something as common as the pigment of our skin has separated the world and fuelled the ignorant agendas of the old boys network that has its hands on the throat of justice, peace and liberty for all creatures on this planet. It’s pure rock n’ roll with a twist of consciousness and a very special appearance from Eamon from The Chats admitting his profound love for body oils and soft jazz…”
King Khan’s brand new incarnation is not simply a “slab of pure punk rock mayhem”. Their new album Opiate Them Asses addresses a smorgasbord of topics ranging from Vice President Mike Pence’s affinity for Gay Conversion through electrocution, the plague of Narcissism rotting the fabric of humanity, Al Capone’s Syphilis, the King’s problem of occasional bedwetting and the evils of Monsanto. King Khan not only shares his very poignant social criticisms but he wraps them around a very solid foundation of classic punk influenced by The Ramones, Dead Boys and Electric Eels.
Lately King Khan has teamed up with Malik Rahim, founding member of the Black Panther Party Louisiana Chapter and they have started the Just Insulin Initiative to build the Just Insulin House which will be a community centre in Algiers, New Orleans, where they will provide diabetes education alongside the doctors and healthcare professionals from the New Orleans Chapter of the Social Medecine Consortium. King Khan is also raising money reading his Black Power Tarot Cards and selling t-shirts for this cause.
Opiate Them Asses is not just a fun album, it’s a call to arms to the whole world and a plea for global solidarity towards the suffering. Not only does it ‘Opiate’ your mind, but also informs your ass to follow.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, FUZZ 2021 european tour has been cancelled. However, another tour is coming in March 2022. Meanwhile, listen III, their first new album in five years out on In The Red.

E.T Explore Me join U-Turn Roster ! Psychedelic Punk band from Netherlands signed on Voodoo Rhythm Records is added to the list of our touring groups. Get ready to squeeze you into an organ grinding fuzz overdose fest and fly you to unknown dimensions.
The Wolfmanhattan Project is joining U-Turn Touring Roster. Composed of the following legends :
Who knows what possessed Mick Collins, Kid Congo Powers and Bob Bert to hook up for the Wolfmanhattan Project? But good thing they did, because here we have giddy garage contraption which combines Collins’ sci-fi obsessions, Powers’ hallucinogenic visions and Bert’s power-house pound—along with a hefty helping of fuzzy r ‘n r mayhem. This first full-length follows the “Smells Like You” single from 2015 (included here at track seven) in fine, trippy, weirder-than-you-were-expecting style.
The three principals are all legendary in a crusty, underground way. Mick Colllins spliced electric blues to garage stomp in the Gories, then rifled through Motown, Detroit House and Bubblegum in the ever-entertaining Dirtbombs. Kid Congo Powers played a role in two of American punk’s defining outfits, first the Gun Club and then the Cramps; more recently he’s backed Nick Cave in the Bad Seeds and recorded a string of wonderfully warped, tripped out garage albums with the Pink Monkey Birds.Bob Bert was Sonic Youth’s first drummer (before Steve Shelley), and he’s also played with the Chrome Cranks, Pussy Galore and Lydia Lunch’s Retrovirus. (Lunch turns up for a cameo in “Jar in the Staircase.”) That’s a lot of rock and roll history right there, but none of it weighs on their hard-knocking, rough-housing, just-out-of-true grooves. They play hard, with joy and eccentric intelligence right here, right now.
