In the world of progressive rock, there are few talents more impressive or expansive than that of Rob Favotto. A titanic and fittingly cosmic artist, his work has graced our pages and coloured the Australian scene for years, but now, he’s back in a different want. Taking a step away from his solo work, Rob is back with a brand new outfit, the ‘take no prisoners war machine’ of ‘Burn the Highway’.
A stellar three-piece of that sees Rob joining forces with Kristian on vocals and bass, and Nate Barnes on drums, Burn the Highway have wasted no time in making their mark on Australia’s blossoming hard rock scene. Armed with an eponymous four-track EP and a wealth of brutal adjectives, Burn the Highway have hit the ground running, delivering a sharp, cinematic release that shines with the raw power and unyielding aggression of a gritty street fight.
Available now on all major platforms, 'Burn the Highway' is arguably one of this year’s most impressive independent releases, tearing through tracks like ‘Hitman’ and ‘Atonement’ with ease, laying down cataclysmic guitar tracks, thunderous percussion, and some of the fiercest vocals you’ll find anywhere on the scene today.
While the otherworldly cosmic vibe that Rob is known for has been somewhat dampened on the new EP, the band have more than made up for it with their driven, in-your-face sound. Tune in to ‘Burn the Highway’ below and make sure you turn it up loud.
A release that is definitely not for the faint of heart, the new EP is a relentless and powerful introduction to the harsh world of Burn the Highway, along with an impressive, heavy-hitting new side to one of our favourite guitarists.
