Named after their homeland's favorite mythical creature, who also happens to be a common topic of interest among band members, Tacoma Washington's The Legend of Bigfoot have done much for gaining a name for themselves as well. Drawing influences from classic artists such as Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath, to more modern ones such as Radiohead and Screaming Trees, one can get the idea of their sonic landscape: It's hard rock in a psychedelic world, spacey themes meeting murky forest stomps, and if you hear a touch of pop sensibilities thrown in there, well that's just the way they like it. Personnel changes in early 2011 brought in new members Jimmy Hughs(drums) and Nate Rich (guitar) both of which have only helped to solidify the power and unified focus. It's this line-up that is currently recording their debut full length record, with a little help from ally Van Conner (Screaming Trees/Valis). Look for said release in early 2012 tentatively titled, Keepers Of The Sacred Flame.

Seattle WA. psychedelic grunge band, Screaming Trees were on their last legs when their album, "Dust" was released in 1996. Two years later, Van Conner would form Valis with his brother Pat Conner.
Valis have been creating some of the best spacy psychedelic music you will ever hear. On their album, "Minds Through Space And Time", Valis prove themselves to be in fine form, and this is their best effort to date.
Valis are recommended to both heavy psych & stoner fans alike!
