Marijuanal was founded in the province of Rovigo (Veneto Region,Italy) among March\April 2013 by Spear (voice, guitars)
who was lookin to create a band to play his favourite music: hardcore, thrash 80’s, punk. Few weeks later Piledriver (bass),
a person well known by Spear, joined in the band and changed a little bit a simple hardcore project into something more
interesting and completed. In the summer 2013 the demo “garbage paradise” was ready and it had 4 songs, in September
2013 “greatest (s)hits”, containing 3 songs, was ready and represented a very huge step ahead. “Alone” became number 1
in the soundclick punk chart ( over 18’000 tracks) and in the rock chart reached the top 50 ( 47 place over 251’000 songs),
“No pussies in the skatepark” reached the position number 4 in the soundclick punk chart while “1984” (which has been
used for our second videoclip) reached the number 11.
In the 2014 February the 16th, the song “no pussies in the skatepark” was voted as one of the best songs in the demo
chart in the website of the legendary punk label “Epitaph”. In the 2014 March the 5th, “no pussies in the skapepark” and
“1984” are (at the same time) in the Epitaph demo chart.
