Thought this would bring a smile to your face... here's a candid snap from last month, when Mulligan awarded Eli his winnings from the tour football pool. You know Eli, so, you know how much he relished this victory. And rightfully so. Came down to the final game between Eli and Ralphie! I landed in the middle of the pack, but at least I beat Poncho and Billy. The photo was taken on-stage right after The Horse soundchecked. Neil, lookin' sharp. We were spread pretty thin on this tour, so we didn't really get to catch up as much as I would have liked. We're learning so much right now. The first-hand Crazy Horse life lessons ... well, we took those in like soup to our tired souls. And, we were nourished. Your old pal (and my life guru) Mr. Dominic DiSaia was behind the lens. Bonnie, you are somewhere in this photo. In fact, you are everywhere in this photo. Thank you for all that you give.
Here's a moment from another time when we missed you something fierce! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0daPiO9UJcw
Happy Holidays friends, thanks for stoping by this 'ol rickety and antiquated web site.
We just got home from a run of dates opening for Neil Young with Crazy Horse. Even now that it's behind us, it's kind of hard to compute. Wow, that really just happened. What a learning experience as always, getting to spend time with Neil and his buddies with that deep pocket heavy groove. Many cherished moments that we'll store away in our memory banks, a lot of knowledge shared and gleaned. We worked our asses off to pull it off. We got the chance to play Madison Square Garden (for the third time?!!) in the midst of bizarre union ?mafia? restrictions and a crushing adrenaline rush. All DIY ... no crew, just us. And, in the middle of it all, we got to fly to Chicago to play WXRT's amazing holiday show with Band of Horses and Alabama Shakes in the most beautiful theatre we'd ever seen. It was a remarkable trip. Wish I could tell just a few hundred of a thousand stories to ya. Before I forget them.. Oh well. Let's make some new memories.
For those of you who came out to see us during our July tour across the country, who shared a story, a smile or a drink....We appreciate you. Some of you made us cupcakes in our likeness', and brought us craftsman Guitars(Knaggs), and duct tape wallets. Many of you became our friends and we felt like we'd always known you, some of you taught us how to Kayak, catch blue crab and then...eat them. Many of you accepted us into your homes and treated us like family. There were those who took pictures of us and shared them, who came early and stayed late so they could meet us and get signed copies of our new record, "Ownerless," and bought our shirts and supported us. Thank you. We were on fire at these shows, burning with an energy that i've personally never known and I feel a fundamental change in my soul as a result. Thank you to all who've come out to share this with me and the gang...it means the world. As i feel it is important to remind each other, I will leave you with the invaluable message of our dear friend, Cory Murchy................
With much love and respect,
We're excited and proud to announce the release this week of our new album Ownerless on ATO/Vapor Records. We're celebrating with a rooftop performance in Manhattan at the beautiful McKittrick Hotel (home to Sleep No More), then heading down to Washington DC to play at LivingSocial's 918 F Street on Tuesday night. There will be a few other events going on as well around the country, including Origami Vinyl hosting an album listening pizza party on Tuesday at 8pm. http://www.origamimusic.blogspot.com/2012/06/tuesday-everest-ownerless-l....
Hi there... we're in the thick of album release preparations and shows in the greater DC/Annapolis/Baltimore area right now enjoying a residency with a truly solid music-lover radio station called WRNR, with the assist from Corona. For all of July, we're doing a North American tour w/ a band we're very excited to hang with, Alberta Cross! Also, it's probably old news at this point (never!) but we're thrilled that Neil Young has asked us to go out with Crazy Horse for run of North American dates in November & December. Kind of hard to process that thanks to Neil, we'll be playing Madison Square Garden for the third time! Can't wait to see your faces along the way.
Hello hello.. Quick update, y'alls.
So, things are starting to get busy as we gear up for the June 26th release of our new album Ownerless. We've added a bunch of dates to the "shows" page and we will be adding many more soon, so please check back. Although I highly recommend listening to the whole group of tunes as an album... there are several songs already available to sample:

Hi there. If you are just now checkin us out for the first time, we've just released a digital-only (for now) EP called Who the Hell IS Everest? It's is a funky stew that basically answers a question... with a question. Maybe it'll make more sense further down the road. There's one song that your cousin Susie might know from our 2nd record On Approach. There's a live tap into a deep root from our first record Ghost Notes. There's a look under the bed that reveals a hidden treasure. And then there's a little Love, from the not-so-distant future.
Many thanks to Sir Lawrence Azerrad for introducing us to the wonderful Nam-Chi Van, who created the cover during a performance by a band she'd never heard before. And.. who let us use it for the sake of kindness. Extra special thanks to artist Shayna Peveler and the gangsters at ATO Records for helping us to pull off the rest! New album is finished and is on the way. We're planning on a late June release, but here's a little something to digest in the meantime.
1. Let Go (From the album On Approach)
Just wanted to post a quick update as we rush headlong into 2012... Our new record is mostly done and should be out late Spring. We recorded it over the last 6 months with our friend Richard Swift at National Freedom in Cottage Grove, OR; one song at Albini's Electrical Audio in Chicago, IL; some overdubs at New Monkey Studio in Van Nuys, CA; and finished up with a session that really clicked with Rob Schnapf at Mant Sounds in Glassell Park, CA. I think we all feel like we've done our best work yet and look forward to sharing it with you. Rob will start mixing it in about a week. Looks like we'll be doing some more residencies like we did in Chicago last summer, possibly in NorCal and in the Pacific Northwest, followed by a summer full of touring. It's kind of a time of transition for us... in a good way ... ch-ch-ch-ch-changes will abound in the next few months and we'll be posting news here as we get back into the swing of touring with a new LP on the shelves. Ok. Thanks for stopping by. Have a Corona. Merry New Year...
