STONUS: London-based Cypriot heavy/stoner rockers share new single “Mania” off the debut LP ‘Aphasia’ out now via Electric Valley Records
After half a decade of musical experimentation and constant learning, between UK and Cyprus, Stonus have released their awaited debut album, Aphasia, this March 6th through Electric Valley Records (vinyl — red, gold and die-hard editions) and through Daredevil Records (CD). Recorded live at Wreck it Sounds Studios with a completely analog approach, Aphasia tries to imitate the mental disorder in a more spiritual and personal perception, allowing the listeners to travel to their own musical path.
The Cypriot heavy/stoner rock outfit is now streaming the 4th track “Mania” from the album.
The band explains: “‘Mania’ talks about humans, our obsessions and our addictions, from the numbness that we are forced to wake up every day to the powerful screams that we need to shout every night. It shows our need as an entity to have things to believe and trust in, following trends that mimic the mental disease.”
Hailing through the warm breeze of the Mediterranean, Stonus is a five-piece heavy/stoner rock band. Formed in 2015 in Nicosia, Cyprus, the nebulous fuzz bringers later moved to London in 2018. Their energetic performances, old school attitude, and high voltage sound side by side bring forth a psycho/stoner party out of this planet.
Throughout the years, Stonus has unleashed two EPs, played gigs/festivals in London, Bucharest, and all-around Cyprus. They were presented on national television at RIK-Entexnos as well as in various national radio shows. They also participated in the auditions for Schoolwave Festival in Greece.
On their awaited debut album, Aphasia, Stonus has managed to define their sound seeking deep into their roots, combining a mix of psychedelic, stoner, doom, and hard rock. Clocking in at 41:43 minutes and recorded live at Wreck it Sounds Studios in Corinth, Greece under the supervision of George Leodis and John Modes, the debut LP is completely an analog approach.
Aphasia arrives this March 6th on vinyl (red, gold and die-hard editions) through Electric Valley Records and on CD through Daredevil Records.
