Desertscene are proud to announce Stoned Jesus will be hitting up The Underworld on October 13th. Not only that, they'll be playing their seminal album Seven Thunders Roar in its entirety.
Founded in Kiev, Ukraine, in 2009, Stoned Jesus quickly asserted themselves as a force of progressive stoner psych. Their debut record, First Communion, showed the world how heavy fuzz sounds when filtered through a blistering chill rather than the desert heat.
It's their second album, however, that made Stoned Jesus a household name of the stoner rock scene. Released only 5 years ago, Seven Thunders Roar has already become an iconic record; Sprawling out further into prog fuelled jams and bringing sharp new hooks, it's an album that deserves to be celebrated - which is why Stoned Jesus will be playing the album in full. Whilst some of the album's tracks, such as the incredible 'I'm the Mountain', are a staple part of any Stoned Jesus set, many of the tracks are seeing a rare live outing that you shouldn't miss.
They'll be joined by Californian doom heads Beastmaker, who made waves in the underground with their debut full length Lusus Naturae last year. Harking back to doom of old, without ever being too reliant on the familiar tropes, the band set themselves apart with their high octane energy.
If you don't want to miss out on two of the most exciting bands in the scene, book your tickets today.

Hailing from the depths of Aldershot, Hampshire; XII BOAR blast their way into your skull with ear-shredding leads, pummelling riffs, dirty bass lines and an irresistibly catchy groove. Combining Motorhead’s swagger, Black Sabbath’s downtrodden doom and the ferocity of High On Fire – this power trio lay down a colossal slab of rock'n'roll-infused, southern-fried metal that fuels even the greatest of parties.
Known for having a wildly entertaining and adrenaline driven live show, XII BOAR have brushed shoulders with the likes of Crowbar, Corrosion of Conformity, Brant Bjork and Blues Pills across the UK and Europe and earned themselves a reputation for being a serious forced to be reckoned with.
Having achieved huge critical acclaim with 2015’s debut album Pitworthy, XII BOAR are already back and hailed as one of 2016's strongest artists. Recorded at Skyhammer Studio with renowned producer Chris Fielding (Conan, Electric Wizard, Winterfylleth) at the end of last year, their latest album Beyond The Valley of The Triclops sees the band hitting new heights with a stronger, focused, no limits approach to song writing. Wrapped up in some stunning, booty-tastic artwork done by quasi-legendary artist James Hayball this album creates a total sonic experience, the sort of thing that you can get utterly and beautifully lost in, as you travel beyond the valley. After all...
This is pure rock and roll for the heavier generation.
