Stoned Jesus + Somali Yacht Club New Zealand Shows Announced

C.C. / Friday 31st January, 2020 11:00AM

Ukrainian groups Stoned Jesus and Somali Yacht Club are descending upon Aotearoa to unleash a bongload of ultra-heavy riffs and dimension-ripping psychedelia this coming May. Hailing from Kyiv, Stoned Jesus are key figures in the black-lit realm of stoner rock / doom metal, dispensing epic scale anthems such as 2012's sixteen minute opus 'I'm The Mountain' over six studio albums (including 2019's From The Outer Space) plus multiple EPs since the trio's formation in 2009. Lviv's Somali Yacht Club concoct a potent brew of blazed guitars, cosmic fuzz and post-rock virtuosity, expressed across two studio albums and a trio of EPs thus far, and have shared the stage with the likes of Wo Fat, Elder, Naxatras and Colour Haze. Experience both groups tearing it up live in Auckland and Wellington...
