Elephant Rifle shares "Bone Voyage," tours (2015)

Reno, NV aggro noisecore band Elephant Rifle premiere the first track from their forthcoming new album, Ivory today via Noisey. The song “Bone Voyage” is available to hear and share HERE. (Direct Soundcloud HERE.)
The band launches a string of Bay Area dates in May, to be followed by national dates to be announced soon. Please see current dates below. Ivory the title of Elephant Rifle’s new full-length album. The album title resonates with the band name in obvious ways: Ivory is the material an elephant rifle is usually aimed to obtain. There’s very little actual piano on the album, however. It mostly consists of the raw materials of rock: electric guitar, bass and drums, along with a vocalist who, in live performances anyway, seems to channel John Belushi’s impersonation of Joe Cocker. Elephant Rifle’s music draws from ’80s and ’90s-style noise rock, like The Jesus Lizard, Shellac and Swans, with a bit of old-school hardcore and post-punk in the mix, along with a loving spoonful of the lascivious, cocksure swagger of ’70s hard rock.
Ivory will be available May 19 on LP and download via Humaniterrorist Record Collective.
