“Right in line with fellow SoCal tokemeisters Fu Manchu and Nebula, with plenty of hazy Sabbath rifferama and a generally sludgy, laconic approach.” — Decibel Magazine

“A classic blend of stoner, doom, and boogie rock, reminiscent of Orange Goblin and Motörhead.” — Metal Insider

“An absolute blast of non-stop grooves which will surprise you in many ways.” — Outlaws Of The Sun

Hailing from greater Los Angeles, Max Boogie Overdrive was originally conceived in 2022, as a recording project between guitarist Max Boogie a.k.a. Jim Bacchi (Hittman, Fuzzbubble, The Tikiyaki Orchestra) and Drop Dee a.k.a. Daren Ford (Red Square Black, Ravine, The Generals) as a way to pursue their passion for all things Stoner and Boogie… mammoth guitar riffs, bellowing vocals, and the swagger of early ’70s Detroit rock nʼ roll – dirty, fuzzy, with just a dusting of doom, and whole lotta boogie (not Disco… Heavy Boogie Rock.)

The cyclonic drumming of Tom ʻKnucklesʼ Hernandez (Lords Of Altamont, Superbeez) propels the band past the sludge and doom pace, and guitarist Richard ʻRCʼ Clarkʼs guitar adds the necessary beef to the mix, fattening up the tone, and added vocal duties.

Presented here in its full length album glory, the bandʼs debut, »Stoned Again« serves up a classic blend of all the aforementioned genres in its own unique hybrid. Listeners have drawn comparisons to Orange Goblin, Fu Manchu, even Motörhead… Of course the Sabbath influence is there, but throw in some old Kiss, UFO, Budgie and classic early 80ʼs metal as well… »Stoned Again« focuses on songwriting more than any particular “sound”, so there is a bit more of classic rock structure to the songs, but all heaviness is there, a bit of space-out psychedelia, some epic guitar jams, and of course… riffs o’ plenty. Dig it!

»Stoned Again« is available on CD and download on March 29, 2024. Order your copy HERE!
