On a cold night in January of 2009, 5 guys assembled in a practice room in Syracuse, NY. The first night 2 songs were written and ELEPHANT MOUNTAIN was born. At the encouragement of lead guitarist, John Hanus, he reunited vocalist, Joe Altier and guitarist, Brian “Slider” Azzoto (both formerly of Brand New Sin). Slider and Joe had been discussing writing together in the months leading up to this, so they figured it was time. Along with Joe, Slider and John were drummer, Lewk Detor and bassist, Dave Hoyt the band spent all of 2009 writing, jamming and finding a “sound”. They began mixing all the elements of great classic rock and adding their own modern twist to it. ELEPHANT MOUNTAIN is plain and simple a ROCK N ROLL band. No frills, no b.s!! They are not trying to reinvent the wheel, they are just making good music. The band played a “secret show” in Dec of 2009 and it’s first official show on April 10, 2010. In the early part of 2010 they felt the band needed a fuller sound and added veteran B-3 player, Lou Segreti to the fold. After the first time jamming with Lou the band realized he was the missing piece in the “sound” of ELEPHANT MOUNTAIN. Just recently the band entered MOLETRAX STUDIOS in Syracuse with Jeff “THE MOLE” Moleski and recorded its debut album, “The Last Days Of Planet Earth”. The album will be released independently on Sept 17th. It truly showcases what the band has become in a year and where the future is headed. A fall release of the album is slated with a show to coincide with it as well. Look for the band to release the outing independently and to begin playing shows around the Northeast thru the end of 2010 and early 2011. The band is already writing songs for a follow up album and is hoping to squeeze out new music a few times a year. So stay tuned and SPREAD THE HERD!!
