Turbo Fruits is returning to town for the first time since last year's Savannah Stopover.
On tour promoting their newest full-length album, "Butter," they'll be headlining a night of debauchery and shenanigans at Dollhouse Productions on Jan. 27.
The Associated Press dubbed Turbo Fruits one of its "7 Great Rock Bands from Nashville," and the group boasts "Butter," produced by Spoon's Jim Eno and recorded at his Public Hi-Fi Studio in Austin, Texas, is a "wild, raw record for the kind of folks that aren't ashamed to get loose, get sweaty and get down."
Describing their music as "buzz-saw guitars and pummeling, primal rhythms," their website explains the new album "is the product of 200 days a year in the van, sleeping on floors, accumulating the kind of stories you would never, ever tell your grandkids. It's a spastic, slab of fun-filled fury ... thrashing its way through punk, surf and power-pop and leaving a wake of blown minds and melted faces. Y'know, like a rock record is supposed to do."
Turbo Fruits will be joined by Wet Socks, Whitegold and Hot Hands.
Based in Atlanta, this will be Whitegold's second time playing Savannah. The band opened for the "Legendary Children" drag and art show at Dollhouse and hopes to be back again in March.
"We love Savannah," said Whitegold's drummer, Billy Mitchell. "It's always been a great place to play. I've played Savannah a few times with the bands Christ, Lord and Carnivores and Emily, our singer, has played Savannah with backpockets and BadKids."
According to Mitchell, the crowd can expect projections, dance moves, vocal loops and of course, to participate in the madness.
"All the bands playing have a very fun show environment and bring a lot of energy," said John Zimmerman of Savannah garage rock duo Wet Socks, which consists of Zimmerman and Hunter Jayne. "We are stoked to play with Turbo Fruits. If we weren't playing, I would have still been at the show."
Playing in Savannah for the first time is Hot Hands, with Jeffery Howard on guitar and "Machine Gun" Kristin Howard on drums. Based out of Orlando, this married pair quit their jobs, put their stuff in storage and dedicated their lives to music.
"Kristin and I have been in several bands together, as well as separate, for almost 10 years, even before we began dating," Jeffery Howard said. "This band outlasted everything else we were doing, so it was natural that it became our main focus. We always have a hard time describing what we sound like or who to compare us to. It's loud. It's fun. It's catchy.
"It's all the cool things we like about rock 'n' roll, simplified."
