Tubefreeks Bio

Power Groove Hard Rockers Tubefreeks from Maryland are back with their 3rd full-length album. The Dry Tide continues the group's tradition of hard-hitting original rock production. In 2018 and 2019, Tubefreeks followed up with the Twisted Minds Tour, with shows nationally and regionally including opening for heavyweights like Fuel, Saliva, Sponge, Lamb of God, Puddle of Mud, Tantric and more. Tubefreeks is currently continuing to play great shows as well as writing and recording new material!

Fueled by the original vocal stylings and harmonies of Paul van Valkenburgh, back once again is lead guitarist Rob Portillo with new addition Chris Badolato on drums. The members bring a wealth of writing and performance experience to the band.

As always, the formula is simple; Kickin' heavy riffs, groovin' beats and raging drums, kick-ass guitar solos, and melodic vocals with harmonies. Tubefreeks have drawn comparisons to the most influential, heavy-riff-driven, classic hard rock bands, to today's cutting edge rock.

Influences are many and span the entire spectrum of hard rock bands from the 60's to the present. While there are many more, you might hear some traces of Black Sabbath, Beatles, Aerosmith, Yes, and Skynyrd to Metallica, Ozzy, AC/DC, Stone Temple Pilots, and Alice in Chains, all the way to System of a Down, Rage Against the Machine and Deftones.

The Dry Tide was engineered by renowned Maryland hard rock engineer Frank 'The Punisher' Marchand at Waterford Digital Studio in Pasadena, MD and was mastered by top industry mastering engineer Alan Douches at West West Side Music in New Windsor, NY.

The band has also released a unique series of videos corresponding to song releases from The Dry Tide. The professionally produced videos, available on YouTube and shared across social media, have attracted many new listeners to the music.

The Dry Tide follows up on previous releases from 2010, Complex Disorders and Best of the 90's (compilation).

One listen to Tubefreeks and you will see (and feel) what the buzz is all about!

Rock on!!
