The Los Angeles Alt-Rock Powerhouse Releases New EP
Featuring the FREE Track: “Glad You’re Here Now”
For the past few years, the independent Los Angeles rock band Cosmic Suckerpunch has set the Hollywood concert circuit ablaze with their spine tingling guitar licks, satirical lyrics and jaw dropping performances. Now fresh off a successful Spring Tour, which included four shows at SXSW 2013, they have just been added to the inaugural Life is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas with headliners The Killers, Kings of Leon and Beck.
The band’s latest EP Breathe builds on the band’s natural ability to stun and surprise listeners. New single “Glad You’re Here Now” sets the anthemic tone of the album, with clear-cut catchy chorus and driving rhythm to revel in, while lead track “That Voice” ravages you in true rock style, awakening you with the delivery of well-crafted guitar riffage. From the head-banging onslaught of “Mindbender” to the sweet, neo-psych vibe of “Breathe In The Air,” with this new EP, Cosmic Suckerpunch is ready to burst into the musical stratosphere.
Born in 2009, Cosmic Suckerpunch is a true rock brotherhood comprised of Ari Welkom (guitar / lead vocals) brothers, Fabien Hameline (guitar) & Sebastian Hameline (bassist) and Adam Timmerman (drums). The fearless foursome play spacey licks and heady songs, rooted in blues and funk, and indebted to imaginative fantasy rock music in the spirit of Led Zeppelin and T Rex.

“Ari Welkom’s ‘neo-psychedelic indie rock with a hard rock edge’ is a radio-friendly effort with a heavy dose of personality. The quartet play accessible yet aggressive rock led by Welkom’s clear, masculine vocal execution, and unlike a lot of their contemporaries, they’re masters at drastically shifting the attitude in their songs. With LA as their homebase, Welkom’s band, Cosmic Suckerpunch, just may have a chance at the big time.”
– Andrew Poitras, Diffuser.fm
“Cosmic Suckerpunch is an anachronism, a swaggering mix of Mick Jagger and Marc Bolan over a dirty guitar riff that would do any ’70s glam sleaze band proud.”
– Chris Griffy, Nashville Examiner
“This psychedelic rock band’s music and the sexy grunge sound of lead singer Ari Welkom’s voice which super producer Wade Martin called akin to Kurt Cobain’s always gets your blood pumping. “Breathe in the Air” screams action packed gaming…”
