Stonewall Noise Orchestra or S.N.O. for short, formed 2004, is rooted in the industrial city of Borlänge, Sweden.
They play classic heavy rock influenced by anything from the haunting nerve of the delta blues to heavy metal. Whatever feels right at the moment is what ends up on their recordings, as long as it moves you in one way or another.
2005. The band signs with Daredevil Records for their full length debut “Vol. 1”.
This album was recorded at Pophouse, Borlänge. Snicken and Mr. Pillow borrowed a studio from
a friend and did what they could (or couldn’t do) with it, trying their best to engineer and produce an album. With “Vol.1” and a bunch of compilations released ,the band’s been touring europe and built a reputation for their intense and uncompromising live performances.
2006. The microphone was temporarily passed over to John Hermansen (Mother Misery) who joined the recordings of the second album produced by Robert Ekholm. John also teamed up for some touring with the orchestra while Singe, the original singer took a break from the band. In 2008 , Singe rejoins the orchestra and they sign a deal with The Unit Music Company and the second album called “Constants In An Ever Changing Universe” is released October 29.
“Constants…” got great reviews and this opened up for more live performances, which is the No.1 purpose of the band.
S.N.O. was featured in Classic Rock Magazine and appeared on the magazines compilation “New music of 2009”.
Late 2009 the band head in to their own newly built Studio 454 to record and produce their third album. This little baby is called “Sweet Mississippi Deal” and it’s released on Transubstans Records october 2010 and of it was followed up with more touring.
S.N.O. has toured with and supported bands like Warrior Soul, Blindside, Entombed and Brant Bjork.
The fourth album “Salvation” is released in February 2013 (Transubstans Records). By now the band is travelling europe in their own Volvo nightliner called Mothership.
2015. Singe decides to leave the band which leaves the rest of the band with the tough task to find the right replacer. Eventually, Borlänge-born-and-bred Tony Josefsson jumps aboard the orchestra and the madness continues…
2016. The band signs a worldwide deal with SPV/Steamhammer and May 20 they release the fifth full length album called “The Machine, The Devil & The Dope”.
