CONNOISSEUR: West Coast Stoner Violence Trio To Unleash Expanded Edition Of Stoner Justice This June; “Orc Summer” Lyric Video Now Playing At Revolver

Stoner Justice was the debut EP from California smoke kings, CONNOISSEUR. Likening themselves to Earth Crisis if they “smoked weed and listened to Spazz,” the Smokeland, California-based trio ravages ears with an upbeat/d-beat barrage of West Bay powerviolence packed with resin-coated sludgedowns and chronically brutal, comically cheeba-charged vocal onslaughts that consume the listener in a violently stoned, inescapable haze, all captured by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studios, Oakland (Annihilation Time, Iron Lung, Vhöl, Brainoil).

Following a solid year of blunt rolling and live perversions, the glassy-eyed ganja squad decided to revisit Stoner Justice. Now re-mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering (Abscess, Toxic Holocaust, Voetsek etc.) with an updated, wholly mind-bending cover art collaboration by Skinner (Mastodon) and Hal Rotter (Atriarch, Cough, Eyehategod, Skeletonwitch etc.), Stoner Justice redux has been expanded to fourteen weedian skull-crushers, including a live set professionally recorded at the Tankcrimes Takeover on February 13th, 2015 (mixed and mastered by the same team). Those who puff to the gutter-crusted sounds of Plutocracy, Spazz, Crossed Out, Dystopia, and of course, Earth Crisis, pay heed.

Stoner Justice will see release this June on CD, LP and digitally via Tankcrimes. In the meantime, take a smoke break and check out the band’s new lyric video for “Orc Summer,” now playing at Revolver at THIS LOCATON.
