It’s Elephant’s: Trees in the Road
Atlanta, Ga.’s It’s Elephant’s have recently released their sophomore album “Gets Along” on June 26, which follows on the heels of their debut album “Little Trouble in Chinatown” (released in early 2008). After only a year of playing together, the band is already a hometown favorite, and has toured extensively in the southeast as well. They’re on the brink of exploding nationally, their debut album garnered positive press in regional outlets that range from Paste Magazine online to Southeast Performer Magazine to University of Florida’s student newspaper. Band members include Brent Jay (The Letters Organize), Garrett Range (The Letters Organize), David Fountain, and Justin Shotwell (Charlie Hustle).
Jay and Range left The Letters Organize, a band that Dave Grohl once named as one of his favorite up-and-coming bands, after a seven year run and a international tour with The Offspring, and formed It’s Elephant’s out of its ashes, recruiting Fountain on backing vocals and guitar. They later added Shotwell to complete the band.
For those interested in The Letters Organize, they will be reuniting for one last show on August 28 at Drunken Unicorn in Atlanta, Ga – so make sure you get in one final riveting experience before the expiration date has passed.
