Elephant Stone -- Love the Sinner Hate the Sin by elephantstoners

Elephant Stone will also be releasing official video for Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin. The video was filmed by fans at Elephant Stone's performance at this year's Osheaga Festival in Montreal. Filmmaker and musician Andre Bendahan (Final Flash), compiled and edited all the fan-filmed footage submitted to Elephant Stone's web site.

Elephant Stone is the brainchild of bassist/sitarist Rishi Dhir, a founding member of Montreal pop/psyche veterans the High Dials, and in-demand sitar player for basically every outlaw psyche band out there (Black Angels, The Earlies, Hopewell, Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Soundtrack of Our Lives).

In 2009, Elephant Stone released their debut album, The Seven Seas. Perfectly melding Rishi’s obsession with the perfect pop song and the trippiest raga, The Seven Seas was warmly embraced by the global indie-scene and long listed for the coveted 2009 Polaris Music Prize in Canada. 2010 saw the release of The Glass Box EP, a 5-song suite of inspired power-pop/psyche classics, a supporting slot on the Brian Jonestown Massacre’s North American tour, and an inaugural tour of Europe with sold-out dates in London and Berlin.

Elephant Stone are currently planning their biggest tour yet that will take them from Montreal to California, Iceland and the UK.
