If the name Stöner seems a little on the nose, it is.– singer/guitarist Brant Bjork (Kyuss, Fu Manchu, Brant Bjork Band) and singer/bassist Nick Oliveri (Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, Mondo Generator) were founding members of the stoner rock legend Kyuss and, now joined by long time Brant Bjork Band drummer Ryan Gut, they’ve got dibs on the thick dusty swinging grooves. Stöner’s love for their early inspirations… bands like Blue Öyster Cult, Kiss, Ramones, Blue Cheer, Misfits, Black Flag, The Stooges and MC5 to name a few… result in big, groovy sunbaked riffs that can cruise low and slow but then floor it and run all the red lights.

Live, this is a band about the magnetism between the players, the groove, the loose vibe, strait up badass rock and roll… Stöner are masters of their t(i)rade. These guys have been knee-deep in this stuff for thirty-odd years and have rock & roll running through their blood and bones. For the third and latest album titled Totally… Stöner is in its true form… getting together and having fun. Stöner’s world is a colourful joyride, heavy of rock but not of head. The record cranks with the vibes of classic hard rock, heavy blues, desert rock and psych-rocking jams. These things come organically to this trio, and as always Stöner can’t help but express an abundance of punk rock rawness and a passion for real rock and roll swagger.

The band’s latest album, Totally… recently finished a stint of five weeks at the top of Sentinel Daily‘s Top Thirty Album Chart after being described by Gavin Strickmann as being ‘absolutely one of the must-hear straight-up hard rock records of the year, bar none”.
