The Re-Stoned is an instrumental power trio from Moscow, Russia, which is generally considered by many as a ‘psychedelic stoner rock’ underground act because of the band’s remarkable heavily fuzzed guitar sound, that is empowered by confident old-school muscular riffing.
The band about their new album: “After almost 6 years passed we start feeling the same vibrations like saying ‘isn’t it the right time to do such kind of jam again to see how much progress we made since then?’ In February 2020 Evgeniy Tkachev finally made it to Moscow from distant Siberia with his good old djembe drum and we were lucky enough to record a lot of new material in 4 days. By the way it’s worth mentioning that the song »Rusty Shuffle« was initially recorded for the album »Stories Of The Astral Lizard Vol. 2« but later was re-recorded with the full drum set and made it to the »Thunders Of The Deep« album. All guitar parts, mandolin, effects and even some bass parts I recorded myself, more complicated bass parts were recorded by our incredible bassist Vladimir Kislyakov. The unique flute and clarinet player Maxim Dobromyslov participated as a guest as well. I’m curious what would you say discovering a clarinet sound in The Re-Stoned? Anyway it was a great feeling of magic in the studio. Of course, our new album transmits different feelings and vibrations comparing to the »Part 1«.

In J.R.R.Tolkien’s »The Lord Of The Rings« Gandalf says ‘A wizard is never late, nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to.’ So, rephrasing the classic quote I can say that ‘The Lizard is never late, nor is it early. It arrives precisely when it means to.’ Which is the particular case with our new album. We promise to take you to another journey through the stories of the Astral Lizard, but are you ready to travel?”
