Having completed successful tours of Japan, Australia, London and the U.S. last year, THE FLAMIN’ GROOVIES are hitting the road again in full force for their spring 2014 tours of the U.S., Spain and France. The Cyril Jordan, Chris Wilson, George Alexander line-up that rocked the UK, Europe and the US from 1971 – 1980 are BACK IN ACTION. With the addition of Victor Penalosa on drums, they continue to present their own unique and infectious style of rock n roll with such cult classics as "Slow Death," "Shake Some Action" and "You Tore Me Down."

"The Flamin’ Groovies’ new song ‘End of the World,’ like the band’s best tracks, blends proto-punk energy with power-pop melody. A certain rawness permeates the band’s dedication to pop rhythm, making it sound like it could have been recorded today or in 1972. Considering all the bands that have been influenced by the Groovies, this music is timeless. – ROLLING STONE
"The Flamin’ Groovies’ new single ‘End of the World’ actually sounds to me like substantial growth from their mid/late ’70s material — this is just sonically, musically beyond even ‘Shake Some Action,’ I think. I don’t know if the riff is quite as devastating but the whole soundscape is." – DAVE MARSH
"The Groovies’ recent return sees their quest to keep the spirit of beat music alive continuing." – MOJO (Nov. 2013)
"The Flamin’ Groovies uniquely straddled the garage rock and new wave periods with equally classic output during both, becoming a peerless and legendary San Francisco band." – SF WEEKLY
"Badass rock ‘n’ roll that predated punk rock by a good decade. The Flamin’ Groovies are about as classic a rock band as it gets. And to die-hard fans of rock ‘n’ roll, they are classic rock legends." – CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER
"One of San Francisco’s best, if somewhat overlooked, bands. – MOTHER JONES
