Rückwater is a three-headed stoner rock monster hailing from Tampere, Finland. Their new EP named Bonehead is due to be released on February 24th 2017 by Secret Entertainment. Heartfelt lyrics, strong tunes, two asskickin’ lead singers and a boogie that varies from furious to mellow makes this record worth a listen.
Rückwater has shared a stage with names like Joey Belladonna and stoner legends Karma To Burn, so this really is a band to watch out for.
