In support of the June 26th release of their upcoming new album Ownerless, ATO Records band Everest will take their electrifying live show on the road, touring with Alberta Cross beginning July 5th at Lincoln Hall in Chicago. On the heels of the band’s earlier, highly successful residencies in New York and Chicago, Everest will spend the month of June in Washington, D.C, this time in association with radio station WRNR. Corona Extra will sponsor the residency.

While in the nation’s capital, Everest will play multiple shows, including dates at the Metropolitan, the Avalon Theater and a June 17th acoustic set at Baysox Stadium. The band will also make weekly on-air visits to WRNR.“We’re excited to get back on the road and make new fans in the D.C. area,” said Everest’s Russell Pollard. “When we park ourselves in one city, we really get to know the area but, more importantly, people get to know us.” Additional June tour dates will be added soon, along with a link to a tour page on the band's website.

The night before the new album’s release date, the band will cruise up I-95 to New York City for a special rooftop album listening party and performance at the McKittrick Hotel, followed the next day by an album release party and concert in D.C. at LivingSocial's brand new hot spot, 918 f Street.

Formed by Russell Pollard (who formerly played with Sebadoh, The Folk Implosion, and Earlimart), Joel Graves and Jason Soda in 2007, Everest caught national attention with the release of 2010 sophomore album, On Approach. Early last year the four members of Everest set up shop with longtime friend and musical compatriot Richard Swift at his National Freedom studios in Cottage Grove, Oregon. After several weeks of recording, the band returned to L.A. and enlisted Rob Schnapf (known for his work with Beck, Elliott Smith, and Foo Fighters) to produce additional recording sessions. The result is Ownerless, the band’s most potent set of songs to date.
