From their inception in 2011, reactions to Four Stroke Baron have always exhibited positivity and excitement. The band’s introductory self- titled EP was released in January of 2014 and quickly caught the attention of internet-metal extraordinaire Ben Sharp, aka Cloudkicker. After being featured on Cloudkicker’s blog, growing demand led to their full-length, King Radio being released December 23, 2015 and receiving even more acclaim. Sputnik Music stated in an album review, “Simply put, Four Stroke Baron is a band that defies categorization. Their choruses are simultaneously abrasive and soothing, the riffs bring to mind both Mastodon and Rush…,” and, “Four Stroke Baron is weird, and fun, and bizarre, and hooky, and crazy, and they will be on repeat for a very long time.” It was this album that later aligned Four Stroke Baron with the Prosthetic Records roster. The trio will unveil even more details on their upcoming studio album and tour dates following the release of Planet Silver Screen.
