|Montreal psychedelic rockers Elephant Stone will release their new album next month and have announced four launch parties in Quebec, Montreal, Sherbrooke and Lavaltrie. |
In Montreal, the band will be performing their new album at L’Esco on February 21st at 9 pm. Presale tickets are available here for $17.50 and $22.50 at the door.
After 5 albums, the band prepares to release its sixth: Hollow on Fuzz Club Records. The 12-song opus has already been hailed as one of the most awaited albums of 2020 by Exclaim! magazine. The band’s single “We Cry for Harmonia” was voted as song of the day on KUTX 98.9 and its music video made an exclusive appearance on It’s Psychedelic Baby Magazine.
“We long to feel less empty inside our hollow world.” No truer words have been spoken. This is how the first track, “Hollow World”, of Elephant’s Stone’s new album begins. This psychedelic pop song is filled with ideas of humanity, sadness and beauty and begs the listeners to reflect:
“What do they mean by all these empty words?”. This is a question that we should ask all of society, and it’s inaction towards fighting for climate change. “Hollow World” is a warning to all of us: it is now, and not tomorrow, that things need to change. Don’t make our future generations pay the price for our inaction.
This release follows the band’s LP “Ship of Fools”, released on Burger Records in 2016, along with work from side projects Acid House Ragas and the new band MIEN with members of The Horrors and The Black Angels. Singer Rishi Dhir also has a long history of touring as a sitarist with artists like The Brian Jonestown Massacre and Beck.
Elephant Stone’s American tour came to a close in November. They now embark on a 15-date European tour with North America and Quebec to follow.
