The Re-Stoned are an instrumental stoner rock band from Russia, active since 2008.

History Edit

The Re-Stoned was formed in 2008 by Ilya Lipkin as a project to dedicate himself to fuzz and psychedelic music. Lipkin, along with Romanov and Volnov, started working on various jams beginning with the Return To Reptiles EP in 2009 before releasing their debut album Revealed Gravitation in 2010 while playing occasional shows around the Russia area. Two more albums would come in quick succession in the form of Analog and Plasma throughout the next two years, along with a live album in Vermel and a live-in-the-studio EP entitled Re-Session. The band would tour the UK for the first time in 2011 along with playing the Redburn Festival in Moscow.[1]

'It was sort of a deliberate Re-turn of myself to the music I'd always loved to play and listen to' - that's how Ilya clarified his motives behind starting the band, which quickly became rather well-known worldwide and noted by many listeners with various music tastes. Since the sound of The Re-Stoned was initially inspired by hard rock classics without any strong style bias, the band could soon acquire sincere attention of many classic rock, blues rock, psychedelic rock, traditional doom, stoner enthusiasts and many of those, who just sympathized with the old-school-revivalist's spirit of the Re-Stoned.

During its lifetime, the band went through multiple line-up changes and managed to release 9 full-length studio albums in cooperation with various record labels, e.g. R.A.I.G., Nasoni, Clostridium Records, Headspin Records or Oak Island Records, and went on tours in 2012 (Wales and England), 2015 (Greece), in 2017 and 2018 (Europe), occasionally sharing a stage with such bands as Kadavar, Sasquatch, Acid King, Uncle Acid, Yury Gagarin and Elder.
