The Sloths - Haunted

It’s the stuff of rock ‘n’ roll legend...

Record a remarkable single titled “Makin’ Love”. Play Hollywood’s Sunset Strip in the mid ‘60s. Break up before recording an album.

Have the single resurface 20 years later on a garage compilation appropriately titled "Back from the Grave."

The guitarist hires a private detective to find surviving members.

Re-emerge in 2012, perform local LA shows then tour to wide acclaim. Then, as a climax, record the band’s first full-length album—a full half century after the original 45 touched a record player.

No longer just a footnote in the history of garage rock, The Sloths have embarked on something other than a victory lap reunion tour with their Burger/Lolipop release "Back From The Grave" and music video "One Way Out."
