Liverpool three-piece Elevant have announced a run of dates for February 2016 which will find them performing alongside Manchester-based trio False Advertising at gigs in Manchester and Liverpool.

The run of dates come as Elevant are set to release a new single on their own Elevant Music Limited imprint on the 5 February.

Audience, the follow up to the recent ‘Again’ single, 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 Elevant’s eagerly awaited forthcoming third album There Is A Tide which is due for release on the 4th of March.

The Elevant line up of Michael Edward (guitar / vocals), Tom Shand (drums / piano) and Hannah Lodge (bass / organ) haveover 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 very special. Effortlessly twisting a pop hook to their post punk, psych and krautrock sound to great effect, there is an energy and vision that sets them apart from their contemporaries.
