ELKS – DESTINED FOR THE SUN EP PREORDER
Burgeoning Brooklyn buzz band ELKS will release its debut album Destined for the Sun on September 13 via NYC’s Tee Pee Records. Featuring an abstract conceptual theme chronicling “the history of a tribe of nomadic Space Vikings,” ELKS’ Destined for the Sun tells the tale of “peaceful inhabitants of a planet colonized by an expanding empire,” incorporating a myriad of strange sci-fi ephemera including a “super computer” at the end of the universe dubbed “The Wizard.” Recorded by Made Out of Babies guitarist Brendan Tobin at Brooklyn’s Translator Audio, the album captures every nuance of ELKS’ dynamic live spectacle and amps it up tenfold, resulting in the perfect sonic experience for fans of mind-bending modern metal.
