Coming from La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland, Coilguns is one of the proud flag holders of the 2.0 DIY scene since 2011 when they accidentally formed with the purpose of playing fast and simple music. After releasing a first ep in the shape of homemade screen printed and packed in PVC food bags cd version – they sign to Pelagic Records and quickly the band becomes the main activity of its three members. In 2012 guitarist Jona Nido founds his own label – Hummus Records – counting until now more than fifty releases including all Coilguns music.
Coilguns sums up a total of four EP’s and one full length including guest appearances from Pete Adams (Baroness) and Keijo Niinima (Rotten Sound). Their first album “Commuters” was released in February 2013 as a co-op between Hummus Records and Pelagic Records. All their music has always been recorded live and uncut, generally written and recorded on the spot wherever they were at the moment, sometimes on the other side of the world when touring with their former band, German prog-metallers The Ocean.
