   The Atavists are a surf/stoner rock band from the Czech Republic. Founded in late 2014, The Atavists quickly established their place on the Czech music scene as one of the most prolific indie bands in the country, mainly due to their intense live performances. The unique sound is centered round singer/guitarist/primary songwriter Adam Krofian’s baritone voice and menacing guitar sound, backed by the shrieking sound of an electric organ (somewhat reminiscent of the band the Mummies), and a hard-hitting rhythm section. The group secured a place in the finals of the International Battle Of The Bands in Berlin. That was followed by a string of appearances at major Czech music festivals and also opening for the Norwegian band Kvelertak. The Avatists début album “Bad Times” was released at the beginning of 2016 to a critical acclaim. Later that year, they opened for Biffy Clyro at a famous Czech venue Lucerna. The band’s second album “Lo-Fi Life” was released in March 2018. It was recorded by a veteran sound engineer Amak Golden (whose résumé includes bands like Killing Joke, The Damned, and many others) and received excellent reviews from both press and fans alike. December 2018 marks another first for The Atavists, as they are embarking on their first European tour.

   Surf-stonerová čtyřka si řekla o pozornost už svým debutem Bad Times vydaném v roce 2015 a svou účastí ve světovém finále mezinárodní soutěže GBOB v Berlíně. Svým charakteristickým zvukem starých kláves, podladěným kytarovým šílenstvím a barytonem leadra Adama Krofiana si vytvořila fanouškovskou základnu jak v klubech, tak na největších festivalech v České republice. Druhé album Lo-fi Life je skvěle přijímáno kritiky i fanoušky. Některá media ho řadí mezi sedm nejlepších alb, která vyšla v roce 2018. Za nahrávkou stojí producent Amák Golden (známý spoluprácí se světovými jménami jako Killing Joke a jiné) a label Bigg Boss. V součastnosti začíná být kapela v hledáčku zahraničních promotérů a chystá se na prosincové tour po státech střední a západní Evropy.
