North Carolina hard rockers STONE WHISKEY Carry the Torch for Straight Up Rebellious Rock ‘N’ Roll on New Album, Rebels of the Sun, which released on May 7, 2021.
STONE WHISKEY is an American hard rock band, based out of Raleigh, NC. Building on the classic, time tested 5-piece formula of hard hitting, rebellious rock n roll, the band's lineup consists of vocalist Alan Rueda, guitarists Bill Spears and Chris Clark, drummer Mike Ropelewski, and bassist Jim Hunter.
STONE WHISKEY’s classic, time tested sound was brought to life by producer Anthony Focx, whose more than 500 releases include Buckcherry, Night Ranger, Vince Neil, Daughtry, Aerosmith and 17 gold and platinum awards.
There’s no filler on Rebels of the Sun, with each of the record’s nine tracks delivering a hefty dose of high-energy rock.
