Nineties alt-rock band Geyser are back, with both of their original drummers in the same line-up.  The 2015 Geyser reunion shows see Andrew Prestidge (Angel Witch, Lucifer) and drummer-turned-comedian Al Murray working together again as the driving force for a sound that Melody Maker once described as ‘one glass of Jane’s Addiction, one pint of Smashing Pumpkins and a Feeder shot’. 

Before Geyser, vocalist-guitarist Simon Oakes fronted Peach, the band he formed with Tool bassist Justin Chancellor.

In 2015, it was announced that Geyser would reform to play the Download Festival. Murray has performed as a musician at Download twice already, appearing with T-34 in 2010 and 2011. Oakes and Prestidge last played to a Download crowd in 2006 as Suns of the Tundra. Kerrang! reviewed their Snickers stage performance as “Epic songs in from rock’s outer limits, they wear their progressive wanderlust as a badge of honour... sprawling space rock with a tough rhythmic core”.

Geyser release their first new recordings for over a decade in summer 2015, after reuniting with bassist Adam Wolters and Peach producer Jessica Corcoran.  Expect to hear heavier, contemporary re-workings of their Nineties catalogue, including Babytalk, Last Man on Earth and the Kyuss-inspired track Wired.
