Formed in 2011 by José Carlos González, Ignacio Córdoba and Antonio Correa, Spanish stoner rockers Elephant Riders brought an explosive combination of stoner, grunge and heavy metal. Furious, bluesy and honest powerful rock with some progressive elements on it.

In late 2016, Ignacio switched to the guitar and Juan González (V3ctors) joined the band as a bass player becoming a four-piece band. Gaspar Rodríguez took charge of the drums in 2018 setting the current Elephant Rider’s line up, the most powerful version of the band so far.
