"Rolling waves of fibrous sonic matter you can sink your teeth into."
Tim Hunt and Braden Southee left no stone unturned when it came to magnetizing their accumulative sound. A few chest hairs and musical growth later, Ben McGillivray was summoned to take care of battery whilst Hunt's older sibling David was employed for baritone string duty. As a harmonious quadrilateral, writing could begin.
Tim's vocal range could be likened to all of the great rock n roll legends. Masculine and soothing are words not mutually exclusive in Stonehurst's contextual delivery. The guitar work is Sabbath-esqe with balls to wall classic solo work, whilst bass guitar compliments the writing style as well as being an integral part of the backbone of this 'no holds barred' hit factory. Ben's limbs were a gift
from the rock gods as his style could be described as John Bonham meets Bill Ward.
Stonehurst’s main focus now is on growing in all areas as a band with independent management, including signwriting, recording, and touring. The bands upcoming single ‘Can’t Get Away’ is the first single track featuring from Stonehurst’s much anticipated second album titled ‘A Strange Urge’, released 29th of May 2015 along with a national NZ single release tour.
Stonehurst have shared the stage all over New Zealand with the likes of International bands Corrosion of Conformity (U.S), Avil (U.S), Paul Dianno (Original Iron Maiden vocalist, U.K)
Lord (A.U), Looking Glass (A.U), 10 Thousand (A.U).
