Colorado doom/rock outfit STONE DEAF has unveiled the first single from their impending second album, Royal Burnout, set for release in early May through Black Bow Records. The song comes by way of an official video for the album’s “Spitshine,” which is now playing through The Obelisk.

STONE DEAF offers of the new video, which was created by the band’s Cody Isaman and Dustin Chapin, “‘Spitshine,’ the intro song to Royal Burnout, leads you into a musical freak show. Like a rusted hardtop filled of strung out carnies and miscreants changing gears down a long desert road, and a roller-coaster that guides you through the soundtrack of a fucked-up circus. Showcasing fast paced rhythms and black and white melodies, it’s the first song of a tall, downwards spiraling slope, and that’s only the beginning of the show. Welcome to Royal Burnout.”

The Obelisk reports on the STONE DEAF sound, “They play essentially a high-desert version of low desert rock, taking a strong influence from the pop-heavy stylings of Queens Of The Stone Age and perhaps imagining what they might’ve become if they’d kept working in the vein of their own debut, with songwriting crystal clear in its structure and intent and an edge of heft in their tones. And hooks. Hooks for days.”

Fans of The Hellacopters, Thin Lizzy, Kyuss, Nebula, and Corrosion Of Conformity should tune in and put STONE DEAF and Royal Burnout on your radar.

Royal Burnout will see release on CD and digital platforms through Black Bow Records on Friday, May 4th; find preorder options HERE.

Formed in late 2014 in New Castle, Colorado, STONE DEAFʼs approach to music is a timeless fusion of melody and driving rhythms blending solid rock vibes, psychedelic elements, and sludgy low-end riffs. The band released their self-titled debut album in 2015 and has since spent their time fine-tuning their approach and honing their craft on stage while writing their next record, which now comes to life in Royal Burnout.

Changing gears between chugging riffs, bluesy rock and laid-back moments of heaviness, STONE DEAF provides a soundtrack to your drive into oblivion on Royal Burnout. Ancient aliens poking through the lonely AM radio waves, the light of the radio your only company in the vastness. A sonic palette to accompany the hope of lights in the distance under a dome of desert stars. Leave your watch behind, forget about time and soak in the sounds of the middle of nowhere. With eight new jams packed into a thirty-three-minute album, Royal Burnout was recorded produced, recorded, and mastered by Dustin Chapin at The Launch Complex, New Castle, Colorado, with photography by Marin Forcella and design by the band’s Dustin Chapin and Cody Isaman.
