Elephant Revival To Release 'Break In The Clouds' On June 14

“Inspired by bluegrass, fiddle music, Appalachian folk and even hip-hop…Elephant Revival is one of the finest of the young crop of folk artists touring today, and long do I foresee the career of these five unfolding.” —The Huffington Post

Break in the Clouds, the anticipated sophomore album from acclaimed indie acoustic quintet Elephant Revival will be released June 14 on Ruff Shod/Nettwerk Records. This is the follow-up to the Colorado-based band’s celebrated 2008 self-titled debut, which THISisMODERN lauded as, “unlike any other…their debut makes a statement about originality and musicality that is bold and adventurous.” Break in the Clouds is also already receiving critical attention—the Boulder Weekly declares, “The album brims with poised folk ballads, modern Celtic fiddle dirges, hints of blues and Appalachia…coaxing the spirit but slyly avoiding climbing fully into each form’s body.” In support of the new album, the band will tour throughout this spring and summer, including appearances at Desert Rocks Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival and the Oregon Country Fair. See below for more details and complete tour schedule.

Elephant Revival is Bonnie Paine (vocals, washboard, djembe and musical saw), Sage Cook (electric banjo/guitar, acoustic guitar, mandolin, viola and vocals), Dango Rose (double-bass, mandolin, banjo and vocals), Daniel Rodriguez (acoustic guitar, electric banjo/guitar and vocals) and Bridget Law (fiddle and vocals). Of the band’s dynamic, The Huffington Post describes, “Elephant Revival is not five musicians supporting one songwriter, but friends in full collaboration for the betterment of music, both their own and what folk means to modern America, which is inevitably embedded in the lyrical content.” Break in the Clouds was recorded in Lyons, Colorado and was produced by David Tiller (Taarka) in his studio, The Distillery. In addition to the band’s five core members, the album also features guest appearances by Enion Pelta Tiller on cello, octave violin and violin as well as Tiller on mandolin and tenerator.

No strangers to touring and performing, individually and collectively the band members have shared the stage with The Avett Brothers, Bela Fleck, John Paul Jones, Michael Franti, Little Feat, Yonder Mountain String Band, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic and Leftover Salmon, among many others.
