Stranded By Choice is synonymous with Montana hard rock and metal. For over a decade SBC has refined their unique blend of classic rock, metal and country, both on the road and in the studio. With a thick dual guitar sound and a simplistic yet powerful approach to their song writing, Stranded By Choice is pedal to the metal, Montana mountain rock at it’s best!
December 2018 marked the release of Western Sage, the follow up album to 2016’s Hellroaring. It blends their classic heavy live sound with acoustic instrumentation, layered percussion and moments of pure tripped out psychedelia. While pushing into new territory, Western Stage still stays true to the nostalgic nature of the Stranded By Choice sound. The influence of bands like Black Sabbath, Mountain and Thin Lizzy is obvious in both their studio albums and live shows.
Stranded By Choice has toured the Northwest and Canada extensively and has shared the stage with Red Fang, Kylesa, Blacktop Mojo, Stabbing Westward, Black Wizard, Conan, The Kyle Gass Band, D.O.A. and many more great bands. Stayed tuned for 2019 summer tour dates!

“Calling back to some of the bands that made the ‘70s musically great like Mountain, Budgie, Blackfoot and Steppenwolf, these guys grab that era by the throat and make it their own.” – Kens Rockpile Video Magazine
