Soundtruck are a southern hard rock band from Athens Greece. Ever since they formed in 2008, they have been playing in various small clubs and stadiums in their home-town and other cities in Greece and abroad. Soundtruck are one of the most well-known southern rock bands in Greece at the moment. The band quickly became well known because of the sound and the energy coming out on the stage. Highlights of the band are the opening of Lynyrd Skynyrd concert in Athens in 2012 at the baseball field at Hellinikon, participation in the Czech Republic’s Krenovske Bigbit Festival in the summer of 2015 and the support act in Blues Pills in Athens in 2015.Soundtruck have released 1 album and 3 songs.
The first album Soundtruck was released in June 2012 and it was a self-released album. It received great reviews and it was available to the public on the same day the band opened for Lynyrd Skynyrd. The album made a great sense to the world and got excellent reviews from the press (domestic and foreign), while the released show in Athens at Kyttaro Live Club was sold out. Two acoustic songs, High and Sweet Little Babe, were released in May 2013. These are an acoustic and more country version of the electric songs featured in the first album. This release gave SoundtrucK a ticket to the playlists of the most popular radio stations in Greece (Rock FM, Sport FM etc.) Six Round Weapon is the first digital single of the band and was released in May 2015. With a new line up and a more heavy and groovy approach, this song is a sample of the bands second forthcoming full length album.
With teamwork and dedication to music and influences from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Aerosmith, The Allman Brothers Band to AC DC and Nickelback to Metallica, SoundtrucK are a dynamic band with a bold sound and even bolder performance on stage.
After 7 long, creative and “magical” years, Soundtruck is back with their second album “VOODOO” !! The album follows the band’s southern rock style and contains 9 songs that define the band’s identity. With its hard rock sound and loud riffs, “VOODOO” will immediately lure you down its mystical paths. An exciting and diverse journey that will expose you to Soundtruck’s new line-up, and their experimentation on new sounds and compositions. The truck is revving its engine, and it’s not turning off anytime soon!
The album artwork was created by Vagelis Petikas and Revolver design!
