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.
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.
Chris and Borrie originally kicked off as a 3-piece with drummer Joe Theron releasing their first single Stuck in the Alcohol together. In 2013 the O’Kennedy brothers joined Stoker, adding to the dose of vim and vigor.
The guys quickly established themselves on the local live scene and they kicked into high gear in 2014 with the release of their EP, Fox in a Hole.
With this release and Stoker’s revered live performances, they seamlessly became the band everybody likes or wants 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 success of their singles Evil Shaker, Take a Stab and A Stranger Throne triggered the recording of their full length self-titled debut album.
Stoker’s self-titled album was released at the end of January 2017 and the first single from the album, Forever Drive, was premiered on 5FM’s Hamman Time show.
This debut album garnered great reviews and shows the listener exactly who Stoker is – a class act with a pure love for rock, setting new standards and breathing new air into rock music.
