In anticipation of their upcoming debut album release this June 25th, desert rock supergroup STÖNER (with Brant Bjork, Nick Oliveri, Ryan Güt) release a second track taken from ‘Stoners Rule’ exclusively on Brooklyn Vegan today. You can’t deny that “Rad Stays Rad”!
STÖNER is the supergroup formed by desert rock godfathers and long-time friends Brant Bjork (founding member of Kyuss, also former Fu Manchu), Nick Oliveri (Mondo Generator, former Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age) and Ryan Güt (Brant Björk drummer). The outcome of this desert reunion is their debut album ‘Stoners Rule’, a high-class, groovy and rousing 7-track driven by the spirit of these true legends.
The sound is mellow, yet these are the same guys who created the legend of Kyuss as well as the desert and stoner rock movement, which is alive more than ever. Debut album ‘Stoners Rule’ is a celebration of the sound of the desert, the perfect soundtrack for a ride across the dusty Mojave paths, where it all began. Don’t forget to listen to STÖNER first single “Nothin” at this location.
STÖNER Debut album ‘Stoners Rule’
Out June 25th on Heavy Psych Sounds
A few ideas are timeless. STÖNER is Brant Bjork (guitar/vocals), Nick Oliveri (bass/vocals) and Ryan Gut (drums), and from flowing jams to all-out punker blasts, they know what they’re doing. It ain’t anybody’s first time at the dance, and you don’t call your band Stöner if you’ve never heard the word before. STÖNER, however straight-ahead their moniker, encompass varied styles and the songwriting of Bjork and Oliveri – both founders of Kyuss, also Mondo Generator, Ché, Fu Manchu, Bloodcot, and more between them. Atop the classic-style swing and flow from Güt (also of Bjork’s solo band), Stöner keep it casual and wear the name as only those who helped create the sound could. ‘Stoners Rule’ was recorded at The Rad Cabin in Joshua Tree, CA in October 2020 by Yosef Sanborn.
