“A powerful collaboration from two of the heavy rock scene’s most extraordinary artists.” – Doomed & Stoned

Curated by John Gist of Vegas Rock Revolution and the Doomed & Stoned Show as part of Ripple Music’s previous »Turned To Stone« split series, »Turned To Stone Chapter 5« is really Duneeater and Planet of the 8s working hand in hand to produce a circular flow experience with no distinct beginning or end between both sides – which is completed by a stunning day/night double artwork depicting Western Australia’s famous Wave Rock landscape. Whether it’s Duneeater blasting their straightforward and fuel-charged desert rock à la Slo Burn and Kyuss, or Planet of the 8s’ dark and magnetic “QOTSA meets Alice In Chains” approach, fans of sun-baked riffing will find plenty to feast their ears with this remarkable collaborative album!

The album will be released on Limited Magma Edition (blue inside bronze color-in-color vinyl), Limited Bedrock Edition (solid bronze vinyl) and digital through Ripple Music. Watch Duneeater’s insane cartoon video for »Pleather Sex« and Planet Of The 8s brooding new video »Raised By Night«!

Duneeater / Planet Of The 8s »Turned To Stone Chapter 5« split album out August 5th on Ripple Music – Order here:

Duneeater (pronounced Dune Eater) are a five-piece band fuelled by a heavy desert vibe and made from genuine Aussie car parts. Their love for V8s, driving riffs and groove is evident in their music. While some might be tempted to roll them up in the stoner genre, it doesn’t take long before you realize their riffs weren’t just made for spliffs… It’s an add fuel, turn key and burn rubber road trip to your nearest outback pub. Duneeater’s music was once described as if Kyuss and Fu Manchu jammed out a child That being said, these blokes have managed to find their own sonic space on the desert highway by successfully adding a flare to the Aussie hoon. “I think subconsciously when we’re writing, we work off a template where we hope the listener will wanna crack a few beers n do a burnout.” If you like your stoner rock laced with speed and where the riff reigns supreme, these five blokes are your new co-pilots.

Duneeater is:
Michael “Cogs” Coughlan – Bass
Luke “Robs” Robertson – Guitar
Paul Annison – Guitar
Josh Eales – Drums
Diesel Doleman – Vocals

Planet Of The 8s have evolved over seven years to become one of Australia’s foremost desert stoner rock outfits, delivering a visceral live set punctuated by deep grooves, harmonized melodic vocals and a thick wall of captivating riffs and lead guitar. Their sound has continually evolved and while influences like QOTSA and Kyuss are evident in the older material, Planets’ have brought progressive and doom elements into their more recent/upcoming releases, with a nod to bands like Tool, Lowrider and Elephant Tree.

Planet Of The 8s is:
Michael “Sullo” Sullivan – Vocals, Bass
Justin “JC” Cruickshank – Guitar, Vocals
Pete Carter – Drums, Vocals
