The Great Electric Quest are a stoner rock/heavy rock band originating from San Diego, California. Active since 2010 they are known for drawing inspiration from 70s hard rock ala Deep Purple or Cactus along with psychedelic rock, stoner rock, stoner metal and classic 70s metal.

History[edit | edit source]

The Great Electric Quest formed in 2010 as a project between four friends with a means to jam and play stoner rock. Playing shows around the California area the band would eventually release their first single in 2013 entitled Beers In Hell. A five-track demo followed the next month as the band followed with more performances and shows outside of California. A single for new song at the time entitled Madam Elbib was released in June 2014.

A demo entitled Prelude would see release in 2015 leading into the band's tour with Red Wizard as the band had begun writing and recording more material. Going into 2016 the band would establish further touring and make an appearance at Psycho Festival but notably on 10 June 2016 the band would release their first album Chapter I on their own Glory Or Death Records. In 2017 the band would tour the south leading up to appearances at SXSW and perform a full United States tour entitled Squeelin' Wheels in support of Chapter I while playing new material for a second album in the works at the time.

After a series of short tours, The Great Electric Quest would announce their second album Chapter II for a 6 July release on Totem Cat Records.[1] On 4 February 2020 it would be announced that The Great Electric Quest would sign with Ripple Music and be set to release a live album culled from their 2019 performance at Freak Valley Festival on 27 March.[2]
