The prolific Liverpool trio will be appearing at the Packhorse on Saturday, February 13 when support will come from Stilts, Mothers and Is Not.

They will be giving fans one of their first chances to hear the adventurous tracks from new album ‘There is A Tide’ which is released on their own label on March 4.

Elevant are also set to release a new single, ‘Audience’, on February 5. It was recorded at 3rd Planet Recording Studios, in Liverpool, and was self produced, engineered by Kyle Western and mastered by Pete Maher (Jack White, Patti Smith, Scissor Sisters).

Available to download, the new single takes inspiration from The Melvins, Nirvana and Bauhaus and is a taste of what to expect from the new album.

The Elevant line-up of Michael Edward (guitar / vocals), Tom Shand (drums / piano) and Hannah Lodge (bass / organ) have over the last two years combined their love of My Bloody Valentine, God Speed You! Black Emperor, St Vincent, Tame Impala and Portishead to create something their own sound.

An innovative and exciting live band, Elevant are set to tour in support of their latest work and will also play The Washington, in Sheffield, on April 22 as well as their Packhorse date.
