Questions on the Go | Stonebrother

Stonebrother is a hard rock band that mixes punk, metal and good old rock n’ roll. The band consists of Zach Smith on guitar and lead vocals, Ethan Smith on drums and vocals, and Leo Cox on bass.

We got to ask them a few questions on the go.

Please describe the band in a single sentence.

Combining the raw energy of 70s punk rock with the shredding solos and thundering bass of Van Halen and Metallica with influences ranging from heavy metal, to grunge to pop, Stonebrother is the adrenaline-fuelled head-banging shot to the serotonin boosters you’ve been looking for.

What’s your latest project and what are you working on right now?

Right now we’re working on getting as many gigs as possible, and we’ll be releasing 3 new singles soon.

How do you want people to feel when they listen to your music?

Excited and energetic, it should hopefully make them want more.

Major influences: Who put you on this path?

There’s about a million of them but a few for me are Van Halen, Guns N’ Roses, Mr. Big, Alice in Chains and Aerosmith.

If you had to flee the country as a band, where would you choose to live?

Probably somewhere in Europe.

What’s the ‘wow factor’ that makes YOU decide which songs to keep, record and release?

You can just feel it. If we can’t feel it, it’s back to the drawing board.

What’s the most hilarious band memory you can think of?

There’s lots of those moments with us. One of my favourites was in the studio when Ethan dropped a shaker and Leo broke down laughing, and the mic captured everything so we put it on the end of Problem Child.

What would be the title of the band’s biography?

“Cold Day in Hell”. There’s a lot of meaning behind that one in that context. If is one of our songs, but it can also describe the unlikelihood of everything we do. Also we’re from Canada and it’s cold. 

What’s the next milestone you’d like to achieve as a band?

Touring out of province, and becoming more well-known in our own area.
