The band is distinctive for a predominantly calmer sound in the stoner rock scene with hints of heaviness and intensity along with Alessio De Cicco's relaxed vocal approach.
Tuna de Tierra are an Italian stoner and desert rock band, formed in Naples in early 2013. The band was originally formed when Alessio De Cicco (guitar and vocals) wished to make music hearkening back to the psychedelic, fuzzed-out desert rock sound of Palm Desert. He first recruited, Luciano Mirra (bass), an old friend and long-standing musical partner into the band. The pair began writing the first songs soon after partnering. The songs they wrote were constantly refined as their musical style evolved.
In late 2014/early 2015, the band were eager to record their first release. As such, they began their search for a drummer, eventually opting to recruit Jonathan Maurano, who they had met on the road. The band began recording in early 2015 at Abc29 Studio in Naples with Alberto Santaniello as recording engineer. After mixing at Trail Music Lab in Naples and mastering at Newmastering Studio in Milan, the band released their first EP, EPisode I: Pilot, in June 2015.
On 13 March 2017 it was announced that Tuna De Tierra signed with Argonauta Records with their first full-length album set for a spring release. Tuna de Tierra was released via Argonauta Records on 22 September 2017 to positive reviews.
