The new desert rock supergroup Stöner featuring Brant Bjork (Brant Bjork, ex-Kyuss, ex-Fu Manchu) and Nick Oliveri (Mondo Generator, ex-Kyuss, ex-Queens Of The Stone Age) has signed with Heavy Psych Sounds for their sophomore album.

From Heavy Psych Sounds:

We are so stoked to announce that the desert legends Stöner feat. Brant Bjork and Nick Oliveri has signed a worldwide deal with Heavy Psych Sounds for their sophomore album!!!

Pre-sale + first track premiere: February 8th

Rad stays rad. A few ideas are timeless. Stöner is Brant Bjork (guitar/vocals), Nick Oliveri (bass/vocals) and Ryan Güt (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.

After the debut album »Stoners Rule« out in 2021, the band will release the sophomore album in 2022 via Heavy Psych Sounds!!!

Stöner is:
Brant Bjork – Guitars/Vocals
Nick Oliveri – Bass
Ryan Güt – Drums
