Introducing STOKER – Rock Legends in the Making: Self-titled debut album out now!

Introducing Stoker

Jurgen Borrie Bornman (bass & backing vocals), Chris Bornman (vocals & guitar), Redge O’Kennedy (guitar & backing vocals), Morgan O’Kennedy (drums)

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 success of singles Evil Shaker, Take a Stab and A Stranger Throne triggered the recording of their full length self-titled debut album.

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.

The album is available on iTunes, at their shows and from Stoker’s website.

Name is Austin, peeps call me Austinrock. I like to interact with bands. You DO NOT have my permission to utilize any of my profile information nor any of the content contained here \m/{*¿*}\m/ ...THERE...OK. I'm a huge Melodeath metal fan. I'm proud to be a METALHEAD. Metal isn't for everybody, it's for the chosen few. Most friends I have tell me they don't understand why I like metal, that it is too much noise. They just going to have to listen beyond the noise and the truth is they don't have to figure it out, it is either in you or it isn't. Metal is my morning coffee and it's my night sleeping pills...
