Everest Announce Release of New Album Ownerless
ATO Records is thrilled to announce the June release of Los Angeles rockers Everest's new album, Ownerless. Described by Everest guitarist Joel Graves as a "hopeful love letter slipped under the door," the new album expands on the broad rock 'n' roll direction the band undertook with its 2008 album, On Approach. Produced in large part by Richard Swift (Damien Jurado, The Mynabirds), the new album arrives in stores and at online retailers June 26.
The basic tracks on Ownerless were initially recorded live, in a smoky clubhouse next door to a chicken coop, in Cottage Grove, OR. In an effort to raise the bar above initial expectations, the band also recorded a few songs with the help of Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Booker T. Jones), with whom the band had worked on On Approach. Added Pollard, "Looking at the record now, it almost feels like there's an invisible thread that connects all the dots somehow. It just sort of happened naturally. The result, our new record: Ownerless."
In anticipation of the album's release, WFUV has adopted Everest as their “Artist in Residence” for the month of April and, with the support of Corona Extra, is presenting the band in some super fun New York City rooms. Everest have previously shared the stage with acts such My Morning Jacket, Wilco, Minus The Bear and Matt Costa. They were also hand-picked by Neil Young to accompany him on tour.
