Everest - "raking me over the coals" (right click and "save as")

Filled with lush guitar riffs and rich harmonies, Everest have unleashed a new track “Raking Me Over The Coals,” from their upcoming album Ownerless (out June 26th on ATO Records). The track premiered yesterday on Rolling Stone. “Raking Me Over The Coals” is the result of a collaboration between singer Russell Pollard and Gary Louris. “ Gary came over with his guitar and we set up a little writing workshop in my living room” Pollard explains. “It was January of 2011 in Los Angeles and it was cold, overcast, and Gary and I just so happened to be in a similar head space. Raking Me Over The Coals reflects how we were feeling that day. Questioning, heartbroken and battling the daily drag in order to ultimately, keep ourselves together and to keep going.”

Everest has also just unveiled a month long tour with Neil Young this fall. Back in 2010, the band was hand-selected by Young to accompany him on tour. This November, Everest will share the stage again with Neil, kicking off the tour in Seattle's Key Arena. Joining Neil Young and Everest on tour for select dates are Los Lobos and Patti Smith.
