Everyone Loves A Villain is an aggressive and cinematic rock band comprised of known and respected members of the Pacific Northwest music scene. The group has shaped up to be one of those uncommon situations where the collective vibe is realized in large part due to the strong individual identities of its members. ELAV is built upon pillars of raw talent, vision, and dedication to the craft. The magic these musicians create is based in simply being who they are.
ELAV is lead guitarist George Silva (Eclipse recording artists’ Five Foot Thick), guitarist Dylan Harris (Lucid), vocalist Chris McCoy (Oceans Divide), bassist Joel Hiatt and drummer Steve Ellis (The Fail Safe Project), and media manipulator Jimmy Hill (Amplified Wax Recording Studio). The group began organically out of an 18-year friendship shared by Silva, Harris, Ellis, and McCoy around the idea of a hard-hitting yet melodic new project featuring a diverse pool of talent. ELAV will release its debut record, Conflict, Vol. 1, during the Summer of 2018 and the set is the embodiment of that idea come to life. Songs like “Eater of Worlds” and “Empty Mirrors” mix power, precision, and politics in original ways and demand attention. The sound is unbreakable hard rock with a focus on high-level musicianship and ingenious songwriting.
ELAV draws comparisons to RED, Starset, Breaking Benjamin, and Bring Me The Horizon but is too innovative to be an imitation. The group is as good or better than any rock band in the world at any level. Expect Everyone Loves A Villain to quickly move beyond its regional scene and make every bit of the impact it is capable of.
