Paper Bag Records is excited to announce the latest release from alt-country ensemble Elliott BROOD! Ghost Gardens was released September 15th, 2017! Pre-order the album on limited edition yellow vinyl and receive stickers, as well as an exclusive poster signed by the band!
The term Ghost Gardens alludes to the fact that despite houses and places being abandoned or even forgotten regardless of the circumstances; gardens that were originally planted decades earlier continue to grow and reappear year after year despite their caretakers absence.
Elliott Brood's Ghost Gardens began with the rediscovery of a lost computer drive that contained demo songs from a decade and a half earlier, the beginning of the bands career to be exact. Like most artists these demos were sketches, pencil drawings of ideas that might someday form songs. As it happened the drive was misplaced and forgotten in a garage, just sitting dormant in an old suitcase waiting to be found and unearthed years later when the band was cleaning house and pulling up roots to relocated their families to Hamilton Ontario.
Not often in life does a band get to step back in time to rediscover their younger selves and get to amend or alter that existence. In an odd way this is the band rediscovering their former selves while simultaneously being years wiser both musically and lyrically.
With the bands relocation to Hamilton came a new studio where the band would meet to write and record on a daily basis over the course of this album. The intimacy and rawness of the band can be heard and felt in these new set of recordings. This is a new chapter in the life of Elliott Brood.
