The stoner rock trio from Switzerland and New Zealand? Carson‘s journey began in New Zealand and moved with singer and guitarist Kieran Jones to Lucerne in Switzerland. After almost four years of silence, Carson came back last autumn with an incredible single, »Dirty Dream Maker«, followed by another great tune this February, »The Last Laugh«. These two singles anticipate a powerful and deep journey into our dark souls with the new album coming up on April 15, called of course: »The Wilful Pursuit Of Ignorance«. Enjoy.


Carson is an energetic psychedelic stoner rock’n’roll trio from Lucerne, Switzerland. Originally formed in New Zealand. The band has existed in its current line-up since 2012. Carson are known for their distinctive musical style and captivating, energetic live shows with a strong stage presence.
