Highly acclaimed Southern rock band Stone Senate released their single “Always Never Fades” from their forthcoming EP, Dawn out October 28th via Rollin’ The Dice Records, produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Toby Wright. The five-piece band Stone Senate are at the top of their game with melodic mid-tempo rocker “Always Never Fades.” Clint Woolsey’s baritone vocals are compelling and soulful. About heartbreak, the song is complimented by beautiful guitars and harmonies. A fine example of a top-tier band infusing influences and creating a sound all their own. Listen “Always Never Fades”

Stone Senate distinguishes themselves from other musicians by pushing the boundaries of southern rock and incorporating modern-day guitar riffs. As Toby Wright declares, “Stone Senate is one of today’s most adventurous and prolific rock bands. Their music soars to life with the guitar work unmatched in today’s rock arena, the brothers hold down the rhythm, and Clint has an amazing presence as his voice tells you their story.”
Stone Senate has been called “a heavier version of Lynyrd Skynyrd, crossed with The Allman Brothers Band”. While being mentioned in such a heady company is flattering, but one thing Stone Senate is most definitely not, is a retro act. They are taking what came naturally from their collective influences a step further.
Fronted by lead vocalist/guitarist Clint Woolsey’s smoldering, soulful vocals and unmistakable stage presence, stage left and stage right are burning with dual lead guitars of James Edwards and Ted Hennington. The rhythm section of “The Mud Brothers”- Paul Zettler on bass/vocals and David Zettler on drums/vocals add to this acclaimed band. Having been together since 2012, the band has built a loyal following through a relentless year round touring schedule. Stone Senate has toured with Bulletboys, Tantric, Uli Jon Roth, Davisson Brothers Band and provided direct support for Rival Sons, Tom Kiefer Band, Cinderella, Poison, Styx, Collective Soul, Lit, Alien Ant Farm, Asleep At The Wheel, Vince Neil, Brain Howe, The Kentucky Headhunters, and many more.
About their upcoming EP Dawn, Woolsey says, “These songs were written and completed while we were in the studio, which was a very different process. We had always had the songs and played the songs live for a while and then recorded them for past albums, so this was a different approach, but man did it shine with lots of emotions on this collection of tunes.”
Guitarist James Edwards says, “The Dawn EP includes some of my favorite work we’ve done thus far. I think that it further displays the range and growth of the band as writers and players. The inclusion of instruments that you simply don’t hear every day in rock ‘n’ roll also makes it a really interesting listen. What’s really cool for me is that there’s even more to come.”
