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.

No live set, but . . .

OK OK OK. Going to have to back-pedal a little here . . .

A couple of weeks ago, we talked about a live set in commemoration of longshot's 1000+ views.

We scheduled some time this weekend to pull that together. Of course, we plan, and God plans, and His plans are always way better. Rehearsal didn't happen.

What did happen, though, is going to blow you away. For real.

We did some recording. We've been wanting to do this song for a very long time. And it's done!

We mix next week and then off to the mastering house. Which means we will be saying thank you with some new music before the end of this month!

God willing :)

The blog is updated twice a week. But there's always something happening on Instagram. And Facebook is also a pretty sweet spot to hang out. Join us!
