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. 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. Their world is a colorful joyride, heavy of rock but not of the head. Their records crank 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. Their first three albums “Live at Mojave”, “Stoners Rule” and “totally…” on Heavy Psych Sounds see the band realizing the chemistry of these old friends developing a statement of pure rock and roll fun. Their latest 2023 EP “Boogie To Baja” featured five tracks in the purest STÖNER tradition, a perfect mix of desert swing, stoner rock and low desert punk all at once! With Bjork’s laid-back grooves, Oliveri’s unstoppable fire and Güt’s swagger and flair, this is once again a top-shelf record that will drive all fans of the stoner rock veterans crazy. STÖNER is:
Brant Bjork — Guitar & Vocals
Nick Oliveri — Bass & Vocals
Ryan Güt — Drums
