Elms to Tour with Peter Frampton

Sparrow Records’ critically acclaimed rock
band The Elms have been scheduled to go on the road with the legendary Peter
Frampton for several of his August and September tour dates. Having been
impressed by the band’s music, Frampton extended the invitation.
“We realize how great of an opportunity this is and we are honored by it.
It’s something to write home about,” said Owen Thomas, lead singer of The
Key markets and venues will include Chastain Park in Atlanta GA; Innsbrook
Pavilion in Richmond, VA; Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield, MA;
and House of Blues in both Orlando, FL, and N. Myrtle Beach, SC.
In addition, the fall holds the release of The Elms’ highly anticipated
sophomore album TRUTH, SOUL, ROCK & ROLL. This time around, The Elms have
opted for a grittier, soul-driven sound. To achieve this goal, they acquired
the talents of producer Brent Milligan (Seven Day Jesus, Chasing Furies) and
engineers Richard Dodd (Sheryl Crow, Delbert McClinton, Wilco) and David
Bianco (Tom Petty, The Black Crowes). The release date has been slated for
October 22, 2002.
“With this record, The Elms will continue to legitimize themselves as a band
with musical weight, and the ability to put words to feelings we all
experience,” stated Milligan.
Owen Thomas continued, “It’s been like breathing new air to see this album
come together. We’ve made an album we love – a special record, and I hope
people will be excited to share it with us.”
Being hailed as “one of the best bands to come along in Christian music,” by
ChristianityToday.com, The Elms have received credible praise for their
distinct sound and thought-provoking lyrics. Following the widespread
critical acclaim of The Big Surprise, The Elms garnered two nominations for
the 2002 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards. The album was nominated for
Modern Rock/Alternative Album of the Year, and the single “Hey, Hey”
received a nod for Modern Rock/Alternative Song of the Year. “Hey, Hey” was
also the band’s first music video and has received consistent airplay on
MTV2’s “120 Minutes.”
