Gli Sportivi, the blistering rock n’roll duo from Venice, Italy, have been toasting amplifiers since 2009 with a growling sound rooted in all of rock’s right places.
Fusing apocalyptic drums and fuzz driven doomsday riffs create a sound so strong, you’d be forgiven for thinking its a standard four piece rock band on stage. Gli Sportivi are Lorenzo Petri (guitar & vocals) and Nicola Zanetti (drums), who’ve set out on a mission to push their sound towards a new dimension.
Having worked with Howie Weinberg (mastered Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, James Brown, Bjork, Ramones, Johnny Cash, etc) on 2013’s LP offering « Black Sheep, a tour followed in their native Italy and beyond whilst working on their latest release, 2016’s « Fuzz Days », a collection of analog driven anthems built on a backbone of the duo’s love for custom and vintage gear.
Included in the latest addition of the EuroSonic festival to a wow’ed crowd, Gli Sportivi re-create the fuel-injected atmosphere of their studio output and bring it up a few notches in the live show.
Currently back in the studio, 2017 promises new material and gathering interest for one Italy’s most referred rock acts in recent times.
There are no upcoming Évènements at this time.
