NEW YEARS EVE Stonehurst opening for Devilskin, City Of Souls and Halestorm Cathedral Square Christchurch
About the Band
Stonehurst as a musical entity, rose from the ashes of adolescent rock band 'Superhuman'. Axe-handlers; 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 classique solo work. whilst bass guitar compliments the writing style as well as being an integral part of the backbone of this 'no holes 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.Read more about us
