KYUSS Founder BRANT BJORK Releases ‘Luvin”

“Luvin'”, the new video from Brant Bjork, can be seen below. The song is taken from his latest album, “Tao Of The Devil”, which was released on September 30 via Napalm Records. The CD is said to be “more focused” than its predecessor, 2014’s “Black Power Flower”, and boasts a more song-oriented and groovy stoner sound, with a healthy dose of ’70s-style greatness.

As the founder of KYUSS, the singer, guitarist and drummer might be the ultimate icon the desert rock scene has to offer — but despite all this praise and worship, Brant‘s only concern rests in supplying the planet with unpretentious laid-back rock, adorned with hefty jam-outs.

Bjork is backed on “Tao Of The Devil” by Bubba DuPree on guitar, Dave Dinsmore on bass and Ryan Güt on drums.

In a recent interview with, Brant compared “Tao Of The Devil” to the first LOW DESERT PUNK BAND record, ‘Black Power Flower’. He said: “They are very different in that ‘Black Power Flower’ was me returning to solo work after stepping away for some years, and in returning, I was impatient and frustrated and there was an angst there. I related the feeling to being a kid and skating and listening to punk rock and I just wanted to just scream and shout. It was written all pretty quickly, and it was more about representing that experience and it was a satisfying thing to make. I felt like I got this thing off my chest and out of my system. In the process, I developed a really good relationship with my band. What stuck was something awesome and they’ve ended up being the best band I’ve ever worked with, and this record reflects that arrival. They do the thing that comes naturally to them and you just roll with that. With all the power I have as a solo artist, I could inject myself back into a band situation.”

Song Of The Day

Rosetta Stone were a British Gothic rock band formed in the mid-1980s by Porl King (guitar/vocals/keyboards) and Karl North (bass), plus their drum machine and synthesizer rack nicknamed “Madame Razor”.

The band was named after the Rosetta Stone, an Egyptian historical artifact, and the band used much ancient mythological imagery, especially in their earlier work.

Their early style and first album reflected the jangly-guitar sounds of 1980s gothic rock,and their first big break came after live gigs supporting the then already well-established band The Mission.
