Cockblockers hail from Kalamata, Greece. They were formed in the (very hot) summer of 2011. Their grace period lasted a while, since they had a very specific end game. But, through trial and error, they came up with the lineup that would allow them to take the next step, record their debut album.
While composing and pre-producing it, they took short breaks here and there, to share the stage with many a great bands from the Greek scene. Amongst them where, Planet of Zeus, 1000mods, Tardive Dyskinesia, Mahakala, Yellow Devil Sauce & Beggars, just to name a few.
The recordings ended early in 2017, and the album came to fruition at the end of the same year.
The album was recorded at “The Slow Animals” studio in Patras, with engineer John Slacker. Mixing and mastering was done by Steve Lado at SL studio.
The cover of the album was hand drawn on demand by Alec Webb .
It has been made available since 3rd of February 2018 on all online music distributions. The physical CD along with band merch will be coming to our Bandcamp shortly.

The whole album is dedicated to a close friend of the band, Aggelos Fasoulis, who we loved dearly. He lost the fight with cancer in late 2015. Lost but not forgotten.
