(Apple Valley) – Popular High Desert group Stone Stanley celebrate the release of new video “Bitter End” from their acclaimed album The Mudstomp Tapes, at the Hilltop Tavern & Inn, 9544 Kiowa Dr., Friday, June 15.

“The (Bitter End) video will play on a big screen via projector, in between the sets of Delta Shade and Stone Stanley,” explains Jason Robert, Stone Stanley’s frontman/guitarist-vocalist. Robert goes on to say that Bitter End is “a Crossroads-like tale which focuses on pleasure over burden, longetivity over burnout. Hardship and adversity are overcome with persaverance, in music and in life.” The video will be released to the public via You Tube on Saturday, June 23.
Bitter End is one of twelve songs that comprise The Mudstomp Tapes, Stone Stanley’s 2017 album which has received great reviews both in the U.S. and abroad. Robert decribes the Mudstomp sound as “a very muddy sound predicated on the backbeat of drums and distorted acoustic guitars with a lot of reverb on the drums and vocals. It’s something that has organically grown out of my solo work. The feeling is one of stomping through the Desert during a Mid-Summer rain on a Saturday night.” Musically, Robert says, “it encompasses an eclectic mix of blues, folk, rock, and a hint of reggae, that takes on a life of its own.”
2018 promises to be a busy year for Jason Robert and Stone Stanley, who make their debut at the Long Beach New Blues Festival on Labor Day weekend and play the 6th Annual Woodystock Festival in October.
