Ok the band is back from its tour of France, Italy and the U.S. Midwest. Some pictures and more rambling notes will be posted soon. The new EP is available in most stores, and reviews are starting to come in. For the band, it's time to buckle down and finish tracks for the forthcoming LP (which really won't be realeased until May, probably).

The new Elk City EP, the Sea is Fierce, will be released by WARM Electronic Recordings on October 23, 2001. We've got the promos in our hands as we speak, and they look great. Pick up a copy at your local record store or at finer online outlets.

The band will be touring in France and Italy in October and the southern and midwestern United States in November. Check back soon for official dates.

Good news for those concerned with Elk City's future! WARM Electronic Recordings (home of Crooked Fingers, Azure Ray & Empire State), from Athens, GA, will release the band's next two collections of recordings in the United States. The first, an EP titled "the Sea is Fierce", will be released October 23, 2001. The band will follow this EP with a full-length in early 2002. WARM has a production and distribution deal with Touch & Go, so, by all appearances, Elk City's music will actually be available in stores this time around! Elk City will also perform in the WARM showcase at the CMJ festival (Sept. 13-16) this year.

Back from a jolly European tour, Elk City reacquaints itself with life in NYC . . . the horror! Watch for shows this summer in and around New York. Meanwhile, the band will commit to tape several new songs that have sprung up in the last month. Simultaenously, on the West Coast, filmmaker and culture guru James C. Taylor will begin editing the 60 odd hours of footage he and his omnipresent film crew captured of Elk City's French invasion--baguettes, brioche, and backstage antics we never suspected the Elks were even capable of. Check here for updates on when it will be available.
