Black Mountain is a rock band from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The band is composed of Stephen McBean, Amber Webber, Matt Camirand, Jeremy Schmidt and Joshua Wells.

Since forming in 2004, Black Mountain has released three LPs, Black Mountain (2005), In the Future (2008), and Wilderness Heart (2010), and two EPs, Druganaut (2004) and Bastards of Light (2008) on the Jagjaguwar label. A split single with Destroyer was released in Fall 2004 on Spirit of Orr Records. The “Stormy High” single was released in 2006 on Suicide Squeeze Records. A vinyl single was released in April 2007 named “Surrender Sound Session: Unkle vs. Autolux/Black Mountain” with a remix of “No Hits” on the B side.

Their self-titled album was chosen as one of Amazon.com’s Top 100 Editor’s Picks of 2005. In the Future was a finalist for the 2008 Polaris Music Prize and was also nominated for “Best Alternative Album” in the 2009 Juno Awards. The song “Stay Free” from In the Future was featured on the Spider-Man 3 soundtrack.

In 2005 the band opened for Coldplay on their Twisted Logic Tour for three weeks, with their final opening in San Diego.

In September 2010 Black Mountain performed in an amphitheater located in the woods of Oisterwijk at the Incubate (festival) in Tilburg, Netherlands.

Leader Stephen McBean also heads another similarly named band, Pink Mountaintops, who are the more experimental side of McBean’s musical abilities.
