WE VS DEATH (www.wevsdeath.nl)*
We vs Death is said to be the leading instrumental post-rock band in the Netherlands, and was founded in 2000. Since then they put out a few split-cds and other releases, up to their first full-length album "We Too Are Concerned / We Are Too Concerned" released in 2006. We vs Death has played with many great bands and has been touring throughout Europe, Canada, Japan and Russia. Check them out!
*Formed by singer guitarists Rob Herian and Dan Frost, drummer Sam Roberts and bassist Ben Tat in 2005, the London based band became known as Elks in late 2006. The result to date is music that is always evolving, taking chances and refusing to sit still.
Elks have been playing live regularly since November 2006 including a number of UK dates from Brighton to Glasgow as well as a series of successful European dates in Holland, Germany & Austria at the beginning of 2007. The live show, like the music, always proves a little hard to second guess, but never fails to be explosive and entertaining. So, get ready for some London based rock'n roll!
