Nuclear Blast Records are happy to announce the signing of exciting young psychedelic hard rock band Gaupa from Falun, Sweden.
With surreal lyrics, an energetic, very unique singer, and an addictive sound that combines progressive stoner rock with doom, folk and psychedelic rock influences, Gaupa released their self-titled debut EP in June 2018 and have since made a name for themselves in the international underground rock scene. The Gaupa EP was well received and led to the band playing one of their first live performances at Scandinavia’s biggest rock festival, Sweden Rock. Gaupa then got a chance to release the EP on vinyl via German label Kozmik Artifactz in October 2019 and went on to playing a good number of shows and festivals. Critics were impressed not only by the studio recordings and their diverse & complex arrangements, but also by the level of intensity the band displayed live.
