Gentle Beast was formed in 2017 with the obsession for low-tuned fuzz guitars and psychedelic stoner tunes. The foundation of the sound is set by rhythm machine Alex Streit and the heavy bass of Tobi Rickli. Joining in are the distorted guitar walls of Manu "Cioffi" Ciofalo and Janek Huschke. Band founder Timo Dinter acts as singer and frontman, floating between the stage and the audience.
Since formation, Gentle Beast has played memorable gigs at the Setalight Festival Berlin, Atlantis Basel, or Rote Fabrik Zürich and has shared the stage with known bands of the genre like High Reeper (US), Rodeo (ESP), or DUEL (US). After the joint performance of the latter, Texan guitarist Jeff Henson (DUEL) reached out to the Swiss band and ended up mixing their self-titled debut album released in 2023.
