Central Coast-based indie-rock quartet, Elliot The Bull have just unveiled their new single ‘Beast’, alongside tour dates and news that they will be releasing their third and forthcoming EP of the same namesake – but with a slightly different approach. Over the following five weeks the band will reveal a new song weekly from the six-track ‘Beast’ EP; each as a standalone cut.

The title track ‘Beast’ is driven by its tastefully approached rhythmic section, beautifully layered walls of guitars and capped off by the brooding vocals of enigmatic front man, Jake Dobson. The emotive and compelling number builds and teases with its well thought out dynamics to make for a truly eclectic, yet cohesive piece.

“The first video was filmed at our manager’s farm on the NSW Central Coast; we call it ‘The Ranch’. It used to be an old saloon bar from the 60s and it’s got this amazing cowboy interior and huge living spaces perfect for a band. We brought up a bunch of cameras and a tone of gear and Voila! Great day with good crew, food and music.”

“We are about to release our new record titled ‘Beast’ but wanted to do something a little different. So we thought, instead of putting out one single and video clip, why not release each track weekly so that the record can be heard as a whole by people who might otherwise not get the chance. To accompany each song, we will be releasing a live performance video and individual Artwork/photograph by our very good friend Steven Pike. We will also have the record on vinyl and artwork booklets available to purchase at our upcoming East Coast tour.”

Elliot The Bull have been releasing music and touring since their inception in early 2010, traversing the countryside with the likes of As Tall As Lions (USA) and mewithoutYou (USA), and performing at boutique festivals Red Deer (QLD) and Mountain Sounds (NSW). They’ve performed abroad at Parachute Festival (NZ) and completed three tours of Asia, where they’ve also played at major events including MIDI Festival (China) and Ho-Hai-Yan Rock Festival (Taiwan).
.

To coincide with the release of their record, the band have announced five dates in Brisbane, Port Macquarie, Melbourne, Sydney and Central Coast. The tour almost never happened though, with their home studio recently robbed of thousands of dollars’ worth of equipment. Luckily, a close friend swiftly setup a crowdfunding campaign that helped raise enough funds to replace most of what was taken.

My nickname is "The Amnplifier". Why? Because around here my focus is on being a conduit for providing greater outcomes than people come here for. My day to day "work" is living in the moment, and I love helping others concentrate on finding their connection to themselves through their experiences. Why start a music environment? The truth is I love music, I love writing, and I love life. I work with musicians every day, and I feel certain that I will be until they put me in the ground. I have been managing people in businesses of some sort for over thirty five years so along the way I have developed some "wisdom" from my regular and constant "observations". Amnplify your experience. That is what we want you to do here, and if you want to let me know why you do, or don't, you can always catch me on the Your Blog page. I have a regular spot there so let me know how you are going when you get the chance. Enjoy the new website, and enjoy the ride here as we keep introducing more all the time.
