Fans of all things fuzzy, loud and smoky will be stoked to know that Brant Bjork of legendary Palm Desert stoner-rock gods Kyuss is unveiling his band’s new album Black Power Flower on November 14th. Bjork sounds true to form on the first single “Stokely Up Now”, a pounding & meandering five+ minute journey of tempo changes and overall trippiness. Keep it heavy and check out the single below.

Note: if the limited splatter version doesn’t fit into your budget, there’s a translucent green version available here.

The Details

Strictly Limited Napalm Records Mailorder Edition to 300 Gatefold Copies in TRANSPARENT/GREEN SPLATTER 180g Vinyl. New Solo Album 2014 from the Stoner Rock Cult Figure Brant Bjork ( ex-KYUSS, VISTA CHINO )

No one can fool this man anymore: As a cult figure of the Palm Desert scene, as founder and drummer of the unfortunately no longer active Stoner-Rock legends Kyuss and a permanent member of Vista Chino (formerly KYUSS Lives!), the formation around Kyuss colleague John Garcia, Brant Bjork is washed with all (musical) waters. Now he is sailing under his own flag and proves once again that his multi-instrumental skills know no creative boundaries. With his excellent occupied Low Desert Punk Band, Bjork lets the scorching heat of Nevada shimmer in his songs. He also scrubs his guitar through all sorts of psychedelic effect pedals and skillfully mixes Stoner Rock, Blues and Doom-bonds to a feverish hazy brew. The Desert Rock Band has reached their oasis.
