Formed in coastal Virginia in the Summer of 2017, SNAKE MOUNTAIN REVIVAL gained traction through their first few gigs, by performing completely improvised sets complete with liquid light shows. The three members met in their hometown of Virginia Beach after years of pursuing different styles of music in different parts of the country. Drummer Josh Woodhouse cut his teeth playing death metal and progressive music in Florida, while bassist and vocalist Ryan Chandler was exploring experimental and psychedelic sounds. Guitarist Zack Trowbridge rounded out the trio with his background in blues, jazz and surf rock. Their 2018 self-titled demo EP gained praise in the blogosphere both in the USA and overseas. With a polarizing live show and crossover sound, they've been afforded the opportunity to share the stage with diverse bands such as Acid Dad, Freedom Hawk, Sammi Lanzetta, and Frankie & the Witch Fingers.

SNAKE MOUNTAIN REVIVAL always say they don’t hide from their influences. Instead, they embellish them in a playful way to come up with their own vibrant take on psychedelia. Initially thought out as a story-long concept album, the trio decided to break away from any constricting form of structure and let their creativity flow freely to suit their whims and fancies when recording 'Everything In Sight'. Inspired by waking dreams and psychedelic experimentation, each song is a snapshot, a vision, highlighting vocalist and lyricist Ryan Chandler's strong storytelling skills. He recalls: "The lyrics for these songs came from what I would best describe as vignettes. Snapshots and visions I would collect from waking dreams, simple observations and psychedelic experimentation. A lot of psychedelic experimentation at the time. I enjoy storytelling and these experiences pair very well with our sound. It was a great tool for inspiration but was also a swinging door into the house of madness. I became a sort of existential voyeur. An inter-dimensional tourist."

The album was recorded and engineered by Danny Zawacki and Zack Trowbridge, it was mixed by Snake Mountain Revival and mastered by Keith Hernandez at Suite 2e Studios, Austin TX. The artwork was designed by Stanislov Pobytov.
