""Get Stoned""

There’s a pair of notable local album releases this week. So we’re lumping them into one column item because, well, both bands use the word “stone” in their names. But that’s really where the similarities end.

Up first are Granite City cock-rockers Stone Bullet, who celebrate their new record, Drive, with a show this Thursday, July 11, at — where else? — Gusto’s in Barre. If you’re unfamiliar with SB, you clearly don’t drive an IROC, drink ice beer or have a mullet. Still, even if you don’t fit those time-honored — and awesome — stereotypes of a pop-metal fan, SB are well worth checking out.

In 2012, the band released its self-titled debut, which was one of the hardest-rocking local albums in recent memory. It was a deliriously seedy romp filled with sex, drugs and screeching rock ‘n’ roll, which brought me back to the guilty musical pleasures of my youth and bands like Def Leppard, Mötley Crüe and Ratt. Actually, I take that back. I feel no guilt whatsoever about loving those bands.

I know that four youngish dudes updating an oft-maligned and admittedly cheesy era of rock sounds like a recipe for unchecked irony. But I assure you these guys are for real. And I suspect once people have a chance to hear it, Drive will cement that notion.

The band has been gaining steam regionally, following a heavy gig schedule and an appearance last year on the main stage at the Meadowbrook Pavilion in New Hampshire, alongside Seether, Buckcherry and Puddle of Mudd, among others. Judging from a cursory listen of Stone Bullet’s new record, that experience is paying off. Drive is a far more polished album, musically, than its predecessor. But it doesn’t lose any of the gleeful sleaze that made the band’s debut so much fun. Oh, by the way, Stone Bullet head back to Meadowbrook this Monday, July 15, as the regional opener for Def Leppard and Slash. - Seven Days, by Dan Bolles


Still working on that hot first release.



Born and rising in Vermont, Stone Bullet is the premiere hard rock band in its region. The authentic sound, rooted in influences from Guns N’ Roses to early Aerosmith, blends savvy infectious choruses with driving rhythmic power. Since 2012 they've shared the stage with bands like Seether, Buckcherry, Supermachine, Black Stone Cherry, Puddle of Mudd, Otherwise, Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights, and were a lone 2nd stage regional opener for Def Leppard and Slash w/Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators.  It’s raw energized rock n' roll that is making waves in the northeast as the buzz begins to grow.
