We are delighted to announce that the Opening Poll Winner for STONEDEAD 2022, is These Wicked Rivers. The competition was very fierce with a fantastic number of bands entering and votes cast for the Opening Poll. We would like to thank all the bands who entered and all those people who took the time to vote.
Established in 2014 and hailing from Derby they draw their influences from Black Stone Cherry and Clutch. The band have made quite an impact since their inception with their own brand of blues-infused modern rock, rapidly picking up plaudits for their spectacular live performances using their ‘Grandma’s Living Room’ stage set. Their debut album Eden went down a storm and with more music planned. The production team were very impressed and are sure that These Wicked Rivers will kick start STONEDEAD 2022 off with a bang.
