Following an extensive tour of the US, Canada and Europe last year, Montreal, Canada-based psych-rock trio Elephant Stone are pleased to announce they will return to the UK for a week-long run of headline tour dates in May 2017.
Beginning at the Moth Club on 26th May in London, the tour takes in shows at Cardiff, Leeds, Glasgow and Sheffield, finishing at The Hope & Ruin in Brighton on 31st May.
On returning to the UK for further dates, front man Rishi Dhir comments: “I know I speak for the whole band when I say our two UK dates were definite highlights of our 2016 Ship of Fools tour. We can’t wait to comeback in the summer and play London and the cities we missed on the last run.”
Dhir has previously recorded and toured with the likes of Beck, The Black Angels, Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Horrors, before launching his own project in 2009 for which he’s responsible for vocals, sitar, and bass. The band name is a reference to both the song by The Stone Roses and a literal stone that Dhir owns: a statue of the Hindu god of new beginnings, Ganesh. With typically tongue-in-cheek humour, he describes Elephant Stone’s signature sound as – wait for it – “Hindie Rock”.
