There are at least two bands under the name 'Stork':
STORK are an Australian band. From Spotify, "Local legends and mid-coast spooks – STORK have so far managed to defy expectations in their relatively short career, which has seen them support the likes of Skegss, Hockey Dad, Goons of Doom and Verge Collection.
Raised on a diet of salt, sand and the occasional snag, Stork take influence from Aussie acts including Bad//Dreems, SKEGSS and Drunk Mums as well as international outfits like The Black Lips and FIDLAR. Add to this a healthy appreciation for classic acts such as The Boss and this sees Stork unleash a healthy blend of punk/surf/garage rock.
Stork formed on a summers day in 2015 during some time out of the water, when four mates decided to bash a few instruments around over a couple of West End cans – to which they fondly dedicate their song “Best Friend”. The name ‘Stork’ came about after Bassist Stokesy misspelt his own name whilst attempting to pimp out a surfboard – a mistake anyone could make he insists.
Beloved for their fast-paced, punk tunes which include an ode to lead singer Pat’s terrier – “Maggie is a Jack Russel”, Stork produce an enormous sense of energy and excitability.
With a spate of music ready to be released, there’s no better time to drop in on the party wave that is STORK."
The second is the progressive metal power trio stOrk, comprised of Shane Gibson (KoRn) and Austrian-born super drummer, Thomas Lang.
Berklee School of music grad, Shane Gibson is best known as the touring guitarist from Korn, but recently left the band to pursue stOrk full-time. Gibson's frequent use of odd time signatures, heavy riffing, poly-rhythms, innovative tapping sequences and his impressive sweep picking technique provides the sonic spine of stOrk's masterful, musical progeny.
World-renowned drummer Thomas Lang attended the Vienna Conservatory of music. In addition to touring and recording with a variety of acts, Lang is well-known as a clinician and has authored several best-selling books and educational DVDs including "Creative Control" and "Creative Coordination." Rhythm magazine recently named Lang, "One of the Top 20 Drummers of the Past 25 Years."
Rounding out this ultra power trio is Eloy Palacios (Vension) on bass.
Based in Los Angeles, stOrk's self-titled debut album is scheduled for release in January, 2011 on MUSO Entertainment.
