Future funk fans rejoice! Kinetik Groove and Blunt Force are hitting the road together for the Kinetik Force Fusion Tour, which TheUntz.com is proud to present. Pitting Austin O'Meara's tough-as-nails electro-blues with Brian Gustafson's soulful glitch-hop, the pair will be conquering Colorado and Texas this month.
The pair released the Fusion EP on Philos Records back in 2014 as Kinetik Force, and the tour derives its name from that record.
O'Meara just released a massive Kinetik Groove tune with us last week, in his powerful "Chicago Blues," which our fans took to like flies to honey. Coming up next week, we'll be premiering new music from Kinetik Force, and figuring out how this alignment of sounds led to the formation of this fun duo.
Kinetik Groove will cover his home territory with shows in Denver, Fort Collins, and Boulder, Colorado the first weekend of the tour. Then the pair heads to Texas where Gustafson is based, as well as his drummer Deniz Baykal, who forms the backbone of Blunt Force. The tour his Dallas, San Marcos, and Austin, Texas the last weekend in January, closing that stretch out in Blunt Force's home territory on a massive bill with Savoy and Crywolf.
In late March, the team will reunite for a special performance at Head for the Hills in Kerrville, TX, alongside Ozric Tentacles, Kaminanda, and more.
Then in June, we get special with Kinetik Groove, Blunt Force, and Kinetik Force sets at The Untz Festival. We're expecting some magic from those three sets at the Mariposa County Fairgrounds in Mariposa, CA from June 2-4.
Stay tuned to TheUntz.com for more updates on the tour, as well as new music from this funky alliance.
