Stone Head is a riff-heavy, head-banging hard rock band out of South Jersey/Philadelphia. Drawing on influences from Alice in Chains, Metallica, Soundgarden, Audioslave, The Sword, and TOOL, Stone Head's sound mixes groovy heavy blues with the head-banging rawness of stoner rock, and put their own evil sonic stamp on it all.
Forming as high schoolers in 2009, Stone Head began to experiment with the direction of their sound jamming in a garage. Eager to take the stage, the band played shows at The Trocadero Theatre, and other venues in the Philadelphia area. In 2011, the boys from Stone Head recorded their first full-length self-titled album at their make-shift home recording studio. Including early tracks such as "Layin' Down the Law", "Sudan", and "My Way", the first album put Stone Head on the local map.
Struggling through lineup changes, Stone Head finally came into their own in 2013 when Andy (lead vocals/guitar) and Jarrett (lead guitar/backup vocals) wrote and recorded their follow-up EP "Diesel For The Devil". Recorded at 0x1 Studios with engineer/owner Jason Ruch and mastered by James Forbes of Vortex Music Productions, "Diesel For The Devil" solidified Stone Head's heavy & evil sound.
With the giant release of "Diesel For The Devil" followed press, small record deal offers, and a promising lead to regional touring. Once again, lineup issues plagued the band, forcing all momentum from "Diesel For The Devil" to come to a screeching halt. Andy and Jarrett have been quietly writing a new full-length album and solidifying their lineup over the past year and half, and are finally BACK with a new album that surpasses their last EP.
Back with a vengeance and a hunger unmatched, Stone Head is poised for redemption and validation in the Philadelphia area. Armed with a brand new setlist filled with new head-banging tracks that exemplify their attitude and sound, Stone Head is ready to give the local music scene a much-need shot of guitar riff-laiden rock n' roll and energy.
