With surreal lyrics, an energetic, very unique singer, and an addictive sound that combines progressive stoner rock with doom, folk and psychedelic rock influences, GAUPA released its self-titled debut EP in June 2018 and has since made a name for itself in the international underground rock scene.
The “GAUPA” EP was well received and led to the band playing one of their first live performances at Scandinavia’s biggest rock festival, Sweden Rock.
GAUPA thengot a chance to release the EP on vinyl via German label Kozmik Artifactz in October 2019 and went on to playing a good number of shows and festivals. Critics were impressed not only by the studio recordings and its diverse & complex arrangements, but also by the level of intensity the band displayed live.
In April 2020 GAUPA, which means “lynx” in Swedish dialect, followed up its debut EP by releasing the first full length album, “Feberdröm,” gaining even more attention from both, an international audience as well as the world’s biggest metal label: NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS.
Jens Prueter, Head Of A&R at Nuclear Blast Records Europe stated:
“”While most newcomer bands struggled during the Corona pandemic, GAUPA managed to grow in quality. Their unique sound hasn’t remained unnoticed and word of mouth spread fast. Once we had seen their live stream show and had some video conferences, we knew they would sit well in an artist roster that contains some of their favourite bands, even if GAUPA isn’t very metal at all. But it’s that attitude to tear down boundaries between genres – just for the sake of art. We are proud to welcome them in good company.“
In 2021 GAUPA re-entered the studio to record the second full-length album “Myriad,” which will be relased on November 18, 2022.
GAUPA is currently focussing on the Swedish festival Summer 2022, but the band is already working with great excitement on tours that will bring it to new venues all over the world.
