Sounds like if Brant Bjork and Nick Oliveri got high and formed a band with Ryan Güt on the drums.
For most dust-caked desert dwellers, Kyuss was the be-all-end-all of stoner metal acts. Now, it looks as though drummer Brant Bjork and guitarist Nick Oliveri will once more join forces in a new band named Stoner, who will perform as part of an upcoming livestream series — taking place in the Mojave Desert.
This January, the California Desert Wizards Association will livestream a new performance series called ‘Live In The Mojave Desert,’ which will feature some of the best stoner, desert rock, and doom metal bands on the face of the earth playing in one of the world’s most sprawling, beautiful landscapes. Also adding to the show will be a psychedelic spectacular designed by The Mad Alchemy Liquid Light Show.
“I remember playing Ramones songs with Nick in his mom’s living room in Palm Desert when we were kids,” says Bjork on reuniting with Oliveri. “Nick and I have roots that go deep. Together again as the appropriately named Stoner. A testament to our collective and individual dedication to our past, our present and our future Rock ‘n’ Roll.”
About the concert series, Oliveri says, “Well I think that California Desert Wizards Association is doing a great thing and a new thing under the circumstances of COVID-19, because what I do for a living stopped cold, dead in its tracks. I feel the powers that be are trying to stop and kill music or live music and I believe Dr. Jones is doing a great thing by keeping it alive. We need more people like him coming forward. Let me add, what a cool original idea – live stream while releasing a live record. For a collector like myself this is a great thing! Big cigars and cold beers to CDWA records. RnR will never die.”

LIVE IN THE MOJAVE DESERT is a livestream concert film series created deep in the deep sand and huge boulders of some insanely beautiful California wilderness, with performances from Earthless, Nebula, Spirit Mother, Mountain Tamer, and STONER (a new band by Brant Bjork and Nick Oliveri). Each concert film will be presented in a world-premiere, 1080p HD livestream event hosted by the California Desert Wizards, the bands themselves, and your favorite rock heroes of the California Desert Rock scene. Get ready for rad music, good times, and other psychedelic, weirdo content.
Inspired by Pink Floyd’s Live at Pompeii, we made five new concert films and five live albums on location. We called up a few of our favorite bands - new and legendary artists - and enlisted the Mad Alchemy Liquid Light Show to light up a huge double pyramid of boulders. To capture it all we brought in a crack squad of filmmakers, photographers and audio engineers, and now we bring it to you. Recorded in 24 track ProTools and shot in full HD, these films will turn your living room into psychedelic rock n' roll happening. Grab a couch, turn it up, and hang on man!!
This series is produced and presented by CDWA Records and the California Desert Wizards Association (CDWA), the same folks who throw the annual live music event/generator party near Joshua Tree, CA called Stoned and Dusted.
We are set to launch early next year:
EARTHLESS: Saturday 23rd January, 2021
