Montreal’s Elephant Stone was formed in 2009 by sitarist/bassist Rishi Dhir. As one of the most highly sought out sitar players in the psychedelic music scene, he has recorded and toured with the Black Angels, Brian Jonestown Massacre, the Horrors, the Soundtrack of Our Lives, and many more.
In 2009, Elephant Stone released their Polaris Music Prize-nominated debut, The Seven Seas. 2010/2011 saw the release of The Glass Box EP, a supporting slot on the Brian Jonestown Massacre’s North American tour, multiple European/UK tours with sold-out dates in London and Berlin, and festival appearances at the Iceland Airwaves, Osheaga, and SXSW.
Elephant Stone recently released their sophomore album "Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin" with 10 amazing tracks of sonic goodness. You can also check out The Horrors' Tom Furse remix of Elephant Stone's "A Silent Moment". See them Saturday, Aug. 17 at the Pike Room with Red Stone Souls.
