Amongst the 2020 chaos, these long time friends still satisfy their need to create by virtue of a shared google drive labeled only…Stone Robot.
We essentially formed out of necessity. Being away from music too long was paying its toll and when the pandemic gave the three of us some unexpected time at home, well, we felt like we needed to capitalise on it. Having played together in previous bands from the Western Massachusetts scene, we’ve always had a great feel for how each of us wrote and decided to embark on this journey together minus the traditional constructs of songwriting. We created a shared google drive labeled, Stone Robot, and from each of our home studios, we wrote, recorded, and uploaded anything that inspired us. In the end, being spread out across four state lines would not or could not stop our creative flow once we got the ball in motion and the culmination was this 13-track album, we decided to call, “Planned Obsolescence.”
