Elvis Perkins

Before he announced New Years Eve show at Terminal 5 with Islands and Blonde Redhead, it seemed like a while since we'd heard anything new from Elvis Perkins. And now there's more...

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

We are very pleased to announce the completion of our album and we'd like to play for you here a couple songs for the holidays. One is from the beginning and the other two are from the middle and the end. You will see it all fleshed out come Spring when the thing is released. As always, keep your eyes open, your ears out, and we'll be seeing you in the New Year.

-Elvis, Brigham, Nick and Wyndham
