Smokin' Ziggurats are a San Francisco rock and roll band forged by the collaboration between songwriters and guitarists Ben McClintock and Tom Smith. They became good friends over front stoop guitar sessions, woodshedding material that would soon feed Social Studies, where they were the guitar section, and Foli, McClintock's solo project. Smokin' Ziggurats came to fruition with the addition of Thomas Gettys on drums and bass player, Chris Suguira (Doncat). The group recorded their debut self-titled LP with Phil Manley (Trans Am, Life Coach) that was released in October of 2016 on the group's own imprint, Two Tree Records. Smokin' Ziggurats' Smokin' Ziggurats is the culmination of a years work of songcraft, brought to life by duel lead guitars and vocals and a pummeling, pocket rhythm section.
