The Fever Machine is a stoner rock trio based in Shanghai.
Formed in 2010, The Fever Machine has toured extensively around China, playing their distinct brand of hard, psychedelic rock at the country's largest music festivals and club venues.
After releasing their debut LP Living In Oblivion in 2011, and the ensuing "Tour of the Americas" to Quito, Ecuador, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, The Fever Machine is now set to unveil their latest recorded effort, La Chupacabra, a 7" vinyl-only release available on Beijing's Genjing Records.
Tracked in Shanghai, mixed in Ecuador, and mastered at New York's West West Side Music by acclaimed engineer Alan Douches (Mastodon, Baroness, High on Fire), "La Chupacabra" showcases The Fever Machine at its peak.
A blend of swirling, distorted guitars, a machine gun bass attack, and heavy, staccato drums, "La Chupacabra" is capped with a memorable vocal melody and hook that sees The Fever Machine packing all their progressive elements into a tight, pop-friendly package.
The Fever Machine will celebrate the release of La Chupacabra with a pair of shows in Beijing and Shanghai in November and December 2012 respectively.
