‘DREAMFACE‘ LP – OUT NOW
Liverpool-based experimental rock trio ELEVANT have announced a string of summer UK dates for this coming July.
While it’s not even been a year since their s/t début album hit the shelves and even less time since their 2015 follow-up, ‘Dreamface‘, the Liverpudlian trio have already started thinking about the next instalment.
Speaking about the forthcoming shows, front-man Michael Edward has revealed: “For these shows, we’ll probably start phasing in some material that’ll be on the third record. Three or four songs are just about stage-ready already at this point and more will be by then.”
The tour will see the psyche-rockers take in seven dates throughout July, kicking off at Newport’s Le Pub on the 11th and rounding off at Nottingham Lofthouse at the end of the month (31st). Along the way, the three-piece will stop off at Sheffield’s annual city-wide bash Tramlines where they join the University Arms bill alongside stage head-liners God Damn, Baby Godzilla and many more.
Earlier this year, the band self-released their sophomore effort ‘Dreamface‘, via Edward’s own label Elevant Music Limited (EML) . All 11 tracks were mixed and recorded at the now defunct, Western Recording Company on Seel St. in their home-town Liverpool with Kyle Western in just six days with Pete Maher (Jack White, U2, Goldfrapp) providing the magic touch on the final production duties. The result is an album that blends the furious tenacity of their live shows with an ever-more ambitious sound and a sonic palette daubed with psychedelia, grunge, Krautrock and everything in-between.
Elevant is the brainchild of songwriter, guitarist, vocalist and boss of Elevant’s own label, Michael Edward. Recruiting multi-instrumentalists Hannah Lodge and Tom Shand, the trio hit the road with their self-titled début album in tow for the first time in Autumn 2014. In under a year, the band have completed two national tours, delivered two full-length albums in ‘Elevant’ and ‘Dreamface’ and are now hungry to make it a hat-rick.

Elevant are: Michael Edward – Guitar/Vocals; Hannah Lodge – Bass; Tom Shand – Drums/Backing Vocals
