Formed in the mountains of Boone, RUGG is a heavy psychedelic trio that deals in the visceral and raw. They blend the ideas of past and present heroes like Black Sabbath, Fuzz, and Meatbodies with their own unique flavor of psych-rock to create a sound that’s just as engaging as it is entrancing.

RUGG was started last year by Brendan Grove, Brandon Mangano, and Lucas Triba. They had to take some time away from live shows last year due to COVID, but they’re back with a vengeance in their local venues.

Their lead single, “Runner”, dropped in April, with more work to come out over 2021.
