Stillwater Black came together in 1991 when Chris Thayer met Ahmed and Sam Pierstorff while playing in the pit band for a high school musical production. Issac McCorkell was quickly recruited on drums and the band recorded its first EP, The Last Virtuous Lady of Athens.

In 1995 they signed with Cleaves Entertainment, a now-defunct independent label based out of Southern California's Inland Empire. Stillwater Black recorded their debut LP, Adam. They played frequently with local and national acts including Dishwalla, Save Ferris, Reel Big Fish, and IE punk/ska mainstays, The Skeletones.

In 1997 the members parted ways and the project lay dormant for two decades.

One day to go . . .

Sam. I think your derby's too tight, bro. longshot drops TOMORROW and you've been riding that same note for like the last four days.

Advance copies are out, and the feedback is in. Some folks are ecstatic:

A-ma-zing. I have it cranked up through my headphones right now. I am lovin' the slow, crunchy AF groove.

I'm having all sorts of feels right now. Listening... goosebumps! Damnit I'm loving everything about it. This will be on repeat for the next several hours. No joke 5 in a row so far. You guys sound so so good!

And some a bit more sober:

this made my day, sweeeeet :)
