Elephant Bell Signs With Argonauta Records

Finnish stoner outfit Elephant Bell just inked a deal with Argonuata Records. The label also issued this statement:

“We’re thrilled to start this collaboration, Elephant Bell are a stunning band highly influenced by the first ‘stoner’ era and by bands as Monster Magnet, Fu Manchu, with a touch of grunge-like sonorities as Soundgarden – whereas, moreover, the band features in its ranks our old friend Tomi Mykkanen of Lowburn.

“As for the band, being part of the second wave of stoner rock movement had its highlights. Lots of cool bands like Dozer, Lowrider, Greenleaf, QotSA, Unida, Devillac and new friends, songs and gigs and beers and fun… After releasing a few EPs and playing a few dozen gigs, the band felt ready to record their first album. It was recorded by the band themselves and finally released in digital format in 2011. The album was received very well around the world but it never got a proper release.

“Being part of the third wave of Stoner Rock has its perks too; lots of new friends and bands and labels. And the still lingering interest towards Elephant Bell… So, the band decided to re-mix and master the album and add two previously unreleased songs from the album sessions to it and release it as a proper release. After some discussions the band got in touch with high soaring Italian record label Argonauta Records and finally the deal for the album was made.

This upcoming album was mastered by Karl Daniel Lidén (of Greenleaf and Dozer fame) and will be released in the first part of 2017.
