With their brand of honest, dirty rock ‘n roll, Stoker has made their presence known with heavily distorted guitars, bass and pounding drums that drive the melodic intensity of their songs.
Lead vocals & guitar: Chris Bornman
Guitar & backing vocals: Redge O’Kennedy
Bass & backing vocals: Jurgen ‘Borrie’ Bornman
Drums: Morgan O’Kennedy
Stoker is made up of two sets of brothers hailing from two small towns. Chris and Jurgen ‘Borrie’ Bornman are from Rawsonville and Morgan and Redge O’Kennedy are from Malmesbury. Both of the older brothers imparted their passion for rock ‘n roll onto their younger brothers.
They kicked into gear in 2014 with the release of their EP, Fox in a Hole. With this release and Stoker’s revered live performances, they soon became the band everybody likes or want to be like. Festivals caught wind of this exciting band, which led to stellar sets at Oppikoppi (2014, 2015), Up the Creek (2015, 2016), Ramfest (2014), Synergy Live (2011, 2014) and Zeegunst (2015).
The first single from the album, Forever Drive, was premiered on 5FM’s Hamman Time show on 19 January 2017 and the music video will be released soon.
This debut album shows the listeners exactly who Stoker is – a class act with a pure love for rock, setting new standards and breathing new air into rock music.
