Stöner:  The desert kings are back with an incredible sophomore album.

Stöner – Totally

Desert super group Stöner (with Brant Bjork and Nick Oliveri) share new single Party March; new album out May 6th on Heavy Psych Sounds.

Desert rock supergroup Stöner (with Brant Bjork, Nick Oliveri and Ryan Güt) team up with Brooklyn Vegan to present their explosive second single “Party March”, taken from their upcoming sophomore album ‘totally…’ on Heavy Psych Sounds. Crank the volume up now!

As the wise Chuck Dukowski once said to me: «it’s all about the Party March’. So let your good times roll, let them soothe your soul. March! March! March!» – Nick Oliveri, Stöner

The desert kings are back with an incredible sophomore album: Totally…’is the perfect mix of desert swing, stoner rock, desert rock, and low punk all at once! Eight new tracks that will blow your mind, recorded by Brant Bjork’s long-time collaborator Yosef Sanborn.

Mellow guitars, funky stoner rhythms, bluesy atmospheres, Nick Oliveri’s trademark punk drive: the album flies away in one listen and makes you want to play it again immediately. As the artwork will tell, the trio doesn’t take itself too seriously. After all, isn’t STÖNER all about fun and friends jamming together? That’s precisely the recipe they are delivering after 30 years of rocking the heavy world.

Stöner is the super group 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 and Queens Of the Stone Age) and Ryan Güt (Brant Björk drummer). Their debut studio album ‘Stoners Rule’ was released in the summer of 2021, and they now return with their brand new album totally…on May 6th! It was produced, recorded and mixed by Yosef The track A Million Beers is the first single taken from the bands album Totally.

 If the name Stöner seems a little on the nose, well… it is. Brant Bjork and Nick Oliveri, founding members of the stoner rock legend Kyuss, are joined again by drummer Ryan Güt (of Bjork’s solo band) and they’ve got dibs on the thick and dusty swinging grooves, returning as Stöner with their sophomore release Totally…. Their love for their early inspirations (bands like Blue Oyster Cult, Kiss, Ramones, Blue Cheer, Misfits, Black Flag, The Stooges, MC5) results in big, groovy, sunbaked riffs that can cruise low and slow but then floor it and run all the red lights.

Live, Stöner is a band about the magnetism between the players, the groove, loose vibe and straight-up badass rock and roll… Stöner are masters of their trade. With Totally…, Stöner is in its true form, getting together and having fun. Their world is a colorful joyride, heavy of rock but not of the head. The record cranks with vibes of classic hard rock, heavy blues, desert rock and psych rock jams — things that come organically to this trio.

Stöner can’t help but express an abundance of punk rock rawness and passion for real rock and roll swagger. With two records, Live At Mojave and Stoners Rule, the latest release Totally…sees the band realizing the chemistry of these old friends developing a statement of pure rock and roll fun. Grab a slice, crank it, and catch the band on tour in ‘22 in the US, Canada, UK and Europe.

About Ulf Backstrøm (7437 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
