‘Desertscene are proud to announce Stoned Jesus will be hitting up The Underworld on October 13th. Not only that, they’ll be playing their seminal album Seven Thunders Roar in its entirety.
Founded in Kyiv, Ukraine, in 2009, Stoned Jesus quickly asserted themselves as a force of progressive stoner psych. Their debut record, First Communion, showed the world how heavy fuzz sounds when filtered through a blistering chill rather than the desert heat.
It’s their second album, however, that made Stoned Jesus a household name of the stoner rock scene. Released only 5 years ago, Seven Thunders Roar has already become an iconic record; Sprawling out further into prog fuelled jams and bringing sharp new hooks, it’s an album that deserves to be celebrated – which is why Stoned Jesus will be playing the album in full. Whilst some of the album’s tracks, such as the incredible ‘I’m the Mountain’, are a staple part of any Stoned Jesus set, many of the tracks are seeing a rare live outing that you shouldn’t miss.
They’ll be joined by Californian doom heads Beastmaker, who made waves in the underground with their debut full length Lusus Naturae last year. Harking back to doom of old, without ever being too reliant on the familiar tropes, the band set themselves apart with their high octane energy.’ (Ukrainian London)
