Ukrainian Psychedelic rock band STONED JESUS is now releasing new track “CON” via Season of Mist. This track is accompanied by a visualiser video STONED JESUS created themselves and can be viewed via the official Season of Mist channel HERE. The link can be freely spread throughout your channels.
This song will be released just days before the band makes their entrée to support DIE TOTEN HOSEN during a massive sold out show on the 20th of August 2022. Expected visitors: 60.000 in Berlin Germany – at Airport Tempelhof!
The single is one of their newest psychedelic rock album (to be released in 2023) “Fatherlight”. Their previous single ‘Porcelain’ was released on the 23rd of May and can be found HERE. Stay tuned for the announcement of the release date!
Lead vocalist and guitarist Igor comments: “CON” is a pure experiment, a crossroad of many ‘what if’s – what if we play a Motorik-type beat in some weird time signatures, what if every word in the lyrics starts with “con-“, what if the song is constantly evolving despite its short runtime, etc. I’m really happy that trying all these things led to this absolutely brilliant result! Also the guys in the band not only embraced my ideas but also helped on other levels, too: Dmytro (drums) recorded and mixed the whole thing, and Sergii (bass) did the video. Enjoy!”
STONED JESUS is also well known for their song ‘I am the mountain’ who managed to reach a whopping 15 million views on Youtube HERE.

Formed by Igor Sydorenko in Kyiv in 2009, STONED JESUS quickly progressed beyond their tongue-in-cheek moniker. The Ukrainian trio’s second full length “Seven Thunders Road” converged doom, prog and grunge in their own recognizable way and the album’s centrepiece, 13-min long “I’m the Mountain”, boasts 15 million plays on YouTube.
STONED JESUS‘s next LP “The Harvest” sounded like a blend of MASTODON, PORCUPINE TREE and SOUNDGARDEN, and their charismatic live shows and relentless touring schedule helped to double and then triple their fanbase in mere months.
While being integral to the European psychedelic rock scene STONED JESUS helped popularize, creatively STONED JESUS never stopped pushing the envelope, taking influences for their newer material from such diverse acts like SWANS, THE CURE, KING CRIMSON and DEFTONES.
