Everest preparing new album release and beginning a tour with Neil Young

Filled with lush guitar riffs and rich harmonies, Everest have unleashed a new track “Raking Me Over The Coals,” from their upcoming album Ownerless (out June 26th on ATO Records).

“Raking Me Over The Coals” is the result of a collaboration between singer Russell Pollard and Gary Louris. “ Gary came over with his guitar and we set up a little writing workshop in my living room” Pollard explains. “It was January of 2011 in Los Angeles and it was cold, overcast, and Gary and I just so happened to be in a similar head space. Raking Me Over The Coals reflects how we were feeling that day. Questioning, heartbroken and battling the daily drag in order to ultimately, keep ourselves together and to keep going.”

Everest has also just unveiled a month long tour with Neil Young this fall. Back in 2010, the band was hand-selected by Young to accompany him on tour. This November, Everest will share the stage again with Neil, kicking off the tour in Seattle’s Key Arena. Joining Neil Young and Everest on tour for select dates are Los Lobos and Patti Smith.

Everest’s Video For First Single, “Let Go” #MM

At the heart of it, Everest is composed of five singer-songwriters, which may explain why bands like Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Neil Young have all enjoyed taking them out on the road with them. When it comes to Everest’s actual songbook, having too many cooks in the kitchen doesn’t hurt, either — it just adds flavor.

Frontman Russell Pollard tells Spinner that, of the batch of songs that form their new album On Approach, the lead track “Let Go” was originally the odd man out. “It started off as a riff Jason [Soda] came up with and over time we kept tweaking it and it kept morphing,” he says. “We then added a second drum kit and the song developed into what it is now. It’s become our favorite to play live … for me especially, since I get to return to my roots as a drummer and play alongside Davey [Latter], while singing.”

As for the video, like Everest themselves, there’s a lot going on all at once. But the end result is a feast for the eyes as well as ears. Check it out at Spinner!

Everest is currently on tour with Minus the Bear, in support of bold sophomore LP, On Approach, due May 11 on Warner Brothers/Vapor Records, and will appear at Bonnaroo Festival in June.
