History

Dhir formed Elephant Stone after he left The High Dials and began to explore Indian classical music.[2] He later found that the 1960s pop that he grew up with, such as The Kinks and The Beatles, was influencing the way he played.[1]

The band's debut album, The Seven Seas, was released June 2, 2009 on Dhir's own Elephants on Parade label, with distribution by Fontana North. The album was a longlisted nominee for the 2009 Polaris Music Prize on June 15, 2009.[3]

On July 4, 2009 The Seven Seas was released on Irish label Indiecater Records.

On February 12, 2013, their self-titled second album was released on Reverberation Appreciation Society.[4]

The band's third full-length album, The Three Poisons, was released in 2014.[5] In 2015, Burger Records released a cassette featuring a remixed version of The Three Poisons titled ES3PRMX.[6] The cassette features collaborations with Anton Newcombe of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Fabien Leseure, Tom Furse of The Horrors, Al Lover, Alex Maas of The Black Angels, Peter Holmstrom of The Dandy Warhols and JP Lapham of The Earlies.[7]
