Powered by Audioscrobbler™Stearica is a three-piece post-rock band formed in 1997 in Turin, Italy. Their deep sound has been developing during the past fifteen years touring around Europe with legendary bands as NoMeansNo, Girls Against Boys, Damo Suzuki, The Ex, and Acid Mothers Temple.

Their highly acclaimed debut album Oltre was a ten songs work presenting the ability of the band to explore different music attitudes. Oltre featured special guests as MC Dälek, Amy Denio, and Jessica Lurie.

In 2010, after doing two extensive tours with the famous Japanese psychedelic rock and space rock troubadours Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O., they collaboratively created a document of a friendship between the two bands on the critically acclaimed LP Stearica invade Acid Mothers Temple, which is also a collaboration between London's Robot Elephant Records and Homeopathic collective.

In 2009 and 2011, The Wire chose twice the band on the prestigious compilation The Wire Tapper. It is the first time an Italian project has the honor to be included two times in the historical compilation that during the years has hosted bands like Sigur Rós, Sonic Youth, Liars, and Four Tet. To crown the first part of 2011, the piece of news that the artistic director of Primavera Sound has invited the band to play in the 2011 edition of the festival which has taken place on May and hosted the lice acts of artists like PJ Harvey, Grinderman, Interpol, and Mogwai.

For the occasion, Aloud Music, one of the most important labels of the Peninsula, have reprinted Oltre in a precious limited vinyl edition.
