Some bands start off inspired by a sound. Some bands form in order to call attention to their opinions and political platforms. Some bands wander aimlessly, as if by mistake. And some bands prefer the wild lands to the dusty paths. Elliott is this band. The dark and bloody land of Kentucky resides far enough away from the diseased music scenes of other cities, making it the perfect seat for a musical empire. In the Fall of 1995 Elliott started just such an empire; brought together by similar backgrounds and unified with a new ideology- cast aside the expected. A seven inch released in early 1996 gave just a taste of what was to come. Elliott joined forces with Revelation Records soon after the release of this record and while continuing to grow more intimate with the highway systems, the band began preparing the right hand strike of U.S. Songs. Released in June of 1998, this full length showed a new breed of drama and pathos, surrender and rapture and was warmly received by an ever growing, and fiercely loyal audience. Following the album's release with another three and a half months of touring with everyone from Ink And Dagger to Hankshaw to Less Than Jake, Elliott spent the winter months finding and renovating ten thousand square feet of the upper floors of a pre-Civil War warehouse in downtown Louisville. They installed new living quarters and their own, self built recording studio; which they quickly put to use recording new songs for compilations and seven inches. After headlining their own summer tour, the band locked themselves away for the rest of the year while crafting new songs for their sophomore LP; False Cathedrals. Elliott then devoted the entire month of December to recording, rerecording, and fine tuning dozens of potential new tracks. By January, the band was in Los Angeles recording with accomplished producer/engineer Toby Miller, who has worked with such acts as the Wallflowers, Korn, and Fiona Apple.
