SOMALI YACHT CLUB
STONED JESUS hails from Kiev, Ukraine, and they are doubtlessly the biggest band to emerge on Eastern Europe‘s stoner/psychedelic/doom scene recently. Started in 2009 by guitarist/vocalist Igor as his solo project, they toured Russia and Ukraine in early 2010, releasing their highly-anticipated debut „First Communion“ a few months later. 2011 saw them changing direction on „Stormy Monday“. Recorded late 2011, STONED JESUS‘ second full-length „Seven Thunders Roar“ shows their constant desire to reach beyond and push forward. Less doom and more psychedelic, it peaks with 16-min long „I‘m The Mountain“ epic, the most progressive and ambitious track from the band so far. Released in Spring/Summer 2012, it has become the most requested item on their European tour they began 2013. In August, they self-released a compilation of jams and improvisations „The Seed, Vol. 1“, a download-only collection serving as a fundraising weapon for their next full-length „The Harvest“, released on February 24th, 2015, and followed by a European Tour in March.
In 2017, to celebrate the fifth anniversary of „Seven Thunders Roar“, they performed sets featuring their most famous album in its entirety. They are now at work on a new album (to be released on Napalm Records), and will be touring a lot in 2018!
SOMALI YACHT CLUB is a stoner rock trio from Lviv, Ukraine. The band mixes elements of stoner rock, psychedelic rock, shoegazing and post-metal in their music.
