The GREAT ELECTRIC QUEST / Press

“Above and beyond all else, what you get from The Great Electric Quest is positive vibes, which along with the high energy of the songwriting makes this 5 song E.P. a dynamo. "1901", "Break the Shackles" and "Beers in Hell" are uplifting songs, giving the listener a hearty push start in the direction of a more productive use of one's creative energies. I told vocalist Tyler Dingvell that his lyrics were empowering and that there ought to be more dudes like him out there using their platform wisely. Here's what he had to say in response: "Rock and Roll is empowering!! It's not wallowing in the sorrows of life. It's drinking a beer with your friends and forging on to meet the next challenge. It's empowerment of one and an embodiment of brotherhood. Love for humanity with the absence of fear." And maybe that's all you need to know about the band to join them in their quest.”

“The Great Electric Quest is always on the lookout for experiences and are willing to push the perceived limits that surround them into the realm of unceasing extremity. As is the seeker's burden, the outer limit of experience, the reward at the end of the journey is always just out of arm's reach, no matter how far forward they have pushed. All that is not to create the wrong impression that The Quest is an extreme metal band complete with cookie monster vocals, walls of sound and blast beats obsessed with visions of failure and death. Rather, the extremity manifests itself in the form of Russian doll song structures and a moxy, an approach, a confidence that pushes limited skill into rarified territory. The seeker does not fail in reaching for the unattainable, it is in the reaching itself that the seeker succeeds.”

“And so we stumble upon a group of seekers from the sweltering climes of San Diego. They are seekers on a great electric quest. It's a heavy quest. Hot and heavy. Their journey is fraught with giant rock and high stone, their destination unknown, unknowable, unreachable. The only possible outcome of this quest, is death. And of course, they are taking you along for the ride.”

“TGEQ come at you with a 70's hard rock vibe full of shifting time signatures and overdriven guitar riffs plus good clean vocals. Mix this up with some stoner attitude and guitar solo's to die for and you have an EP that well worth it's asking price! Favorite track: Break The Shackles.”

“San Diego's North County rockers slap you in the face with heavy rhythm vibes, and sweet guitar solos. Thanks to my fellow camper FDJ once again for his recommendation. ♥ Favorite track: Break The Shackles.”

“Hailing from San Diego, California The Great Electric Quest play the type of rock'n'roll your mother would warn you about and could only be found in an older brother's record collection. In other words they play kick -ass ROCK! Super cool vocals, shredding guitar and a powerful rhythm section grab you by the collar and drag you into a world of music you will not want to leave.... EVER!”

"Here is a fantastic band from North County that Lindsey and I watched perform at The Battle for Warped, where we were judges. If you haven't heard of these guys then you are definitely missing out!"

“Finding it hard to wake up this morning? Listen to this and TURN IT THE F**K UP!! The Great Electric Quest is a band that hails from Oceanside, CA and they are pretty Kick ass”

“The Great Electric Quest is a Hard Rock band from Oceanside, Calif.”

“If you're not listening to The Great Electric Quest live on Locals Only right now, you are MISSING OUT!”
