Certain Animals serves you gritty rock with a psychedelic edge, straight from the port of Rotterdam. The trio takes you on a trip, meandering from 60’s psychedelia to early 70’s hard rock. It all comes together in a contemporary, yet old school mix.


While the band has only been playing for two years, they performed over 100 shows, among whom major festivals including Zwarte Cross, Oerol, Bevrijdingsfestival, Mañana Mañana, Big Rivers and many more. The brand new EP ‘Down The Rabbit Hole’ was released on 12″ vinyl in a packed Rotown Rotterdam and Sugarfactory Amsterdam, and received positive reviews from major Dutch music magazines such as OOR, Lust For Life, Blues Magazine, Festivalinfo and more.


In the fall of 2018, Certain Animals expands their live reputation by touring the lowlands, having performed at venues such as Paard van Troje, Rotown, Sugarfactory, Hedon, Gebr. de Nobel, Luxor Live, and many more. With lots of labour and even more love, the hairy men built their own fully equipped recording studio on former prostitution grounds. There, Certain Animals currently works on a full length album, scheduled for release in late 2019.
