Evil Triplet is a heavy psych trio from Austin, TX. The space rock behemoth is comprised of Steve Marsh (guitar and vocals), Kirk Laktas (drums), and Joe Volpi (bass).
Marsh traces back to Terminal Mind, a seminal band in the Austin punk scene of the late 70s that spawned The Big Boys and The Dicks. He then led Miracle Room, a psychedelic industrial hoedown that shared stages with Snakefinger, Butthole Surfers, Scratch Acid, Negativland, and Sonny Sharrock, among others, and morphed into Wisdom Tooth, which released a CD on Knitting Factory’s imprint.
Kirk is the keyboard wizard in post-rock bands My Education and Cinders, and was an early member of Stars Of The Lid. He has worked sessions with Acid Mothers Temple, Shearwater, Pauline Oliveros and ST37.
Mr Volpi toured and recorded with Primordial Undermind, as well as lending his chops to countless other Austin bands, including The Flood and Reverend Glasseye. He also performs a dark acoustic song cycle solo as Kaiser Soze, and plays standup bass in Cinders.
Earlier this year they released their record Other World on Super Secret Records. The band is currently wrapping up recording their follow up release, which will be out soon. Singer/guitarist Steve Marsh says about the new record: “The new album will be called Have A Nice Trip. We figured that the last record came out so well that we shouldn’t mess with the process: recorded at Sonic Ranch, engineered by Charles Godfrey, produced by Rob Halverson and myself, mixed at Halversonics Recording in Austin, and being mastered by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service. The guitar photo is a Gibson Futura that once belonged to Billy Gibbons that I got to use during recording.”
But for now Evil Triplet released their new video for ‘We Are the Aliens’, which is taken from Evil Triplet’s debut album Other World:
