Killer riffs, catchy melodies and heavy beats, the Fever Machine is bringing the power trio back with their "epic, schizo rock." Combining hard rock structures with pop hooks, psychedelic bridges and shredding solos, the Fever Machine captures the best elements of rock music from the 70s, 80s & 90s.

Biography

The Fever Machine plays infectious, big-riff rock, combining the swirling, spacey elements of psychedelia and progressive song structures with melodic, pop hooks and the raw power and grime of stoner rock and proto-metal.

Formed in January 2010, the Fever Machine has established themselves as one of the most exciting new bands in China, drawing comparisons to Led Zeppelin, Jane's Addiction and Soundgarden, earning a reputation for their impassioned and raucous live sets.

Having already played on China's biggest festival stages, including the 2011 Shanghai MIDI Festival, the 2011 Modern Sky Strawberry Festival and the 2010 Nanjing International Music Festival, and shared the stage with international acts like Peaches, Secret Machines, The King Khan & BBQ Show, The Morlocks, The Whip, Sahara Hotnights and Little Dragon, the Fever Machine released their debut LP "Living In Oblivion" on June 25th, 2011, a nine track effort that showcases the band's unique brand of "epic, schizo rock."

Named "Album of the Month" by Time Out Beijing, "Living In Oblivion" received high praise from Asian rock bloggers, Shanghai24/7 commenting that "The Fever Machine present us with a kind of modern rock that’s tangible, agreeable, and, most importantly, genuine to the band," BeijingDaze offering "it’s heavy honest to goodness rock with a pair of iron balls," and Singapore's Power of Pop stating that "there is a highly intense sense of urgent authenticity about Living In Oblivion."

In August 2011, the Fever Machine embarked on their landmark "Tour of the Americas" to Ecuador, Los Angeles and San Francisco, becoming the first Chinese band to play in South America at Ecuador's Quitofest, the country's largest music festival, and has also been featured on AOL Music and MP3.com.

The Fever Machine is currently working on a new album to be released in 2012, having already begun tracking at Downtown Sound Studios in Los Angeles, CA.
