about

STIMULI is an Oakland, California rock band formed by guitarist Jimmy Tomahawk, vocalist Kris Nova, drummer Cole Andrew and bassist Tai Hake. After forming in 2013, STIMULI entered the legendary Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California to begin tracking their debut EP.

Released in 2014, the 6 track debut effort of all original material exemplifies the breadth and depth of each member's affinity for the hard rock of Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, the seething grunge of Soundgarden and Alice in Chains and the complex progressive rock of King Crimson and Rush. The sum of these varying influences often results in comparisons of STIMULI to contemporary prog-rock torch bearers such as Porcupine Tree, Tool and Karnivool.

Vocalist Kris Nova's writing is steeped in classic themes of love, loss and introspection yet is spoken with a consummate Oakland voice - first hand accounts of the hardships and beauty of living in California's East Bay. This voice is woven into the complex musical tapestry spun by guitarist Jimmy Tomahawk, drummer Cole Andrew and bassist Tai Hake. STIMULI's music is ambitious enough to push musical boundaries in the spirit of the "Progressive", unusual enough to be an "Alternative" while dense and edgy enough to be "Hard Rock".

The band has recently produced and released a video for the track 'Changes Come' from the debut release. Meanwhile, STIMULI have been performing live in support of the debut EP and preparing to enter the studio to begin tracking the follow up album due in 2016.
