STONE MACHINE ELECTRIC
Stone Machine Electric is a Texas-based duo best known for their weird approach in crafting a darkened and spacious vision of psychadelic jamming. Doom Jazz, it is Doom Jazz!
The band started in the summer of 2009 with founding members Mark Kitchens and William (Dub) Irvin. Once the guitars were tuned and the drums set up, their journey started.
Since starting, the band has self-released "Awash in Feedback" (live demo), their self-titled album, "The Amazing Terror" EP, Sollicitus Es Veritatem, and had their latest live album "Vivere" released on Off The Record label based in the Netherlands.
Stone Machine Electric has toured the southwest area of the states, as well as sharing the stage with national acts such as Mothership, The Atomic Bitchwax, Wo Fat, Jucifer, L.A. Witch, From Beyond, The Midnight Ghost Train, and Amplified Heat. They have appeared on Texas heavy/psych fests End Hip End It, Fuzzed Out Fest, and Heavy Mash.
Locally, the band has garnered attention from the Fort Worth Weekly. These include reviews and write ups on the band, as well as being nominated for Best Heavy Metal every year since 2012.

Outside of the Metroplex, Stone Machine Electric has maintained a consistent online presence with blogs covering this HEAVY genre.
"it’s precisely the kind of weirdo charm in which Stone Machine Electric specialize, and as one awaits further word of their next album, I’ll happily take whatever comes from these two deeply underrated psych jammers"
- JJ Koczan, The Obelisk
Stone Machine Electric goes good with bands like Sleep, Earthless, Elder, and Wo Fat!
