STÖNER: announce new record – Boogie To Baja

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 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 quickly returned with their sophomore studio full-length Totally... in the spring of 2022, alongside an extensive tour across the US, Europe and Australia/New Zealand including appearances in the biggest festivals.  The band decided to keep on going and they recorded another EP set for February 24th, 2023.

“During the recording of ‘Totally…​​,​’​ we were having a blast and the music just kept rollin’ out so we decided to also put together a tasty EP. Guests Mario Lalli on ‘STÖNER Theme’ and Greg Hetson of Circle Jerks and Bad Religion on our version of the Motörhead/Pink Fairies classic ‘City Kids’ makes this EP extra sweet. Jump in and let’s ‘Boogie To Baja!’”

Stöner’s love for their early inspirations (bands like Blue Öyster Cult, Kiss, Ramones, Blue Cheer, Misfits, Black Flag, The Stooges, MC5) 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 and straight up badass rock and roll… Stöner are masters of their trade.

TRACKLIST:
1. Stöner Theme (Baja Version)
2. City Kids
3. Night Tripper vs No Brainer
4. It Ain’t Free
5. Boogie To Baja

STÖNER Boogie To Baja – PREORDER

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 it’s 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” (available on Heavy Psych Sounds), the latest full-length “totally…” sees the band realizing the chemistry of these old friends developing a statement of pure rock and roll fun. The band will soon release a new EP with the rock’n’rolling “Boogie To Baja”, slated for a February 2023 drop on Heavy Psych Sounds.
