Based out of Hartford, Connecticut, Acid Walls is a four-piece hard-psychedelic rock band consisting of Elliott Moreau (lead guitar, vocals), Dom Russo (rhythm guitar,vocals), Bailey Packard (bass guitar), and Eli Pidgeon (drums).
Taking inspiration from bands of the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s such as Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, The Who, Dinosaur Jr., and many of the great grunge bands of the 90s, theriff-heavy foursome is known for its individualistic songwriting style, exhilarating liveshows, and dynamic range that varies between styles including indie rock, hard rock, and psychedelia, interlaced with electrifying touches of metal.
Acid Walls enters 2024 with two potent singles under its belt and is ready to excite the ears of listeners beyond the borders of its home state, kicking off the year with the release of its debut EP titled The Glass Pieces. The band will hold an EP release show on February 16 at Bleachers in Bristol, CT along with Qween Kong, Skavs and Soft Spot as supporting acts. The show is 21+ only, doors are at 7, show starts at 9 and there's a $5 cover charge.
"I’m very excited to be able to hold our EP release show at Bleachers in Bristol. Of all the venues we’ve played as a band, we unanimously agree that this venue has the best sound system/engineering we’ve been able to play with. It’s also a very down to earth, casual spot that is really conducive to interaction between everybody there and really has a communal vibe to it. The last time we played there we were only opening the night, but now that we’re putting on the show, it allows us to be able to breathe a bit more and stretch our legs, musically speaking, during the set. Personally, this EP means a lot to me because it conveys a sense of authentic expression. Although there is much more to be learned and experience to be gained in terms of creating music, this project is truly a step in a direction that we are proud to have taken. As we aim to create even better music in the future, therein still lies a beauty surrounded by rough edges in the EP that really represents who we are as a band." - Elliott Moreau, Acid Walls
