Rescue Rangers (FRA) + Static Future


Since their formation over a decade ago, every day that’s passed has only served to heighten vocalist/guitarist Pascal Mascheroni’s near talismanic-like qualities as a songwriter. A long-serving student and practitioner of classic rock, metal and hardcore punk, the release of the band’s debut album Guitars And Dust Dancing (2010) and follow-up Manitoba (2012) on Trendkill Recordings, deftly showcased the wide range of influences at play on both Mascheroni’s mind and music collection.

The real affirmation of Rescue Rangers’ prowess, however, came in 2009, after the band played a local show with desert rock nonconformist Nick Oliveri. Not only did Oliveri love the band enough to lend vocals to ‘Creeper, The One Who Creeps,’ (from Manitoba) he invited the band to join Mondo Generator on tour across North America that following summer. A fellow kindred spirit and stoic campaigner of high-octane rock ’n’ roll, after one performance in Los Angeles with the former Kyuss/Queens of the Stone Age bass player, the band were approached backstage by another cult luminary and equally enamoured Rescue Rangers-supporter-in-waiting, Page Hamilton. At Hamilton’s request, the band completed an extensive tour supporting his legendary NYC noisemakers Helmet across France and entered the studio upon returning to record new album, Join Hate. Released in 2017 on the band’s own F200 Records (and produced by Hamilton), the band’s third release was an out-and-out treat for fans of heavy rock and electrifying songwriting. Ballsy, voluminous and stacked with promise, it was an ear opener and statement on just how far they’d progressed since day one.
