Acid Rooster

Acid Rooster from Leipzig blast off into space like a textbook sonic joyride straight out of Alan
Freeman’s The Crack in the Cosmic Egg. With a sound evoking the spirit of German kraut and
psych rock pioneers, the instrumental tracks on their partially written and improvised albums
often oscillate between slow-burning, spaced out jams and mind-bending climaxes that have
earned them a stellar reputation for their captivating live shows. Demonstrating a striking level of
instrumental tightness and intuitive improvisation, it is perhaps not surprising to learn that the
three childhood friends Sebastian Väth (guitar), Max Leicht (bass, synthesizer) and Steffen
Schmidt (drums, percussion) share a long history of rehearsing and jamming in their native
hometown in southern germany. Praised by critics for the soaring cosmic drone-riffs and
monolithic rhythm section on their self-titled debut Acid Rooster (2019), the band soon got
invited to a string of shows and appearances at renown festivals such as LeGuessWho and
Fusion Festival. They shared a stage with bands such as Kikagaku Moyo, Acid Mothers Temple,
Föllakzoid or Bitchin Bajas. With an equally hypnotic and foot-tapping intensity, their second EP
Irrlichter (2021) was followed by touring through Europe and UK and the release of their live
album Ad Astra (2022).
