Spoonfed on 90’s music, the Leuven, Belgium foursome BEATEN BY HIPPIES came of age during the first stoner wave. They each bring their own ingredients – a cup of 60–70’s hard rock, a pinch of 80’s glam and a zest of guilty pleasures. Come indulge in the feast that is this ferociously powerful live unit as they feed on the energy emanating from the crowd.
A few words from Tom Maene of Polderrecords:
“I have yet again some very exciting news to share. Here’s Beaten By Hippies, the best band Google never heard of! On this first album, with a sound that’s truly theirs, they prove that there’s more than meets the eye… Even though leather pants don’t look bad at all. Just listen to the blinding intensity of “Velvet Hills”, “Space Tail” or “Tomahawk”.“Blue Rose” will catch you off guard while a song like “Beaten By Hippies” gives meaning to their name. And if you want more? Well, there’s always “More Is More”! Bon Appétit!”

From Leuven, Belgium, Beaten By Hippies is a foursome of high volume, sledgehammer beats, screaming guitars infused with psychedelic flashes, and massive grooves. This ferocious and powerfully live unit will bring you blistering and energetic music, running from proggy leanings to stripped-down hard rock.

From psychedelic doom one moment to sweet and pastoral the next, Beaten By Hippies keep rock ‘n roll unpredictable, inspiring, dangerous, and constantly moving forward, as it should be. Who said Rock is dead?
