THE ELMS have released the debut video from their fourth album THE GREAT AMERICAN MIDRANGE–issued on THE ELM’s own label TRUST Incorporated in conjunction with Artist 2 Market (A2M) Distribution and Warner Chappell. The rousing lead single “Back To Indiana” premiered last spring on national television (ABC, ESPN and VS. networks) during coverage of the Indianapolis 500 race and has been building steadily at radio. The video was filmed while the band was on tour in New York, Philadelphia, Columbus and Louisville, and then completed in their hometown of Seymour, IN—the same “small town” John Mellencamp sang about. You can view the video for “Back To Indiana” at:

Currently on the road, THE ELMS have announced a new leg of headline winter tour dates for this December in support of THE GREAT AMERICAN MIDRANGE. Since first forming in 2002, THE ELMS–who embody the hard-working values that they sing about–have played more than 900 shows sharing stages in the U.S. and Europe with artists as diverse as Band of Horses, Shooter Jennings, Neil Young, the Fratellis and Buddy Guy.

THE GREAT AMERICAN MIDRANGE was co-produced by THE ELMS and longtime collaborator Brent Milligan; engineered and mixed by Adam Kasper (Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age); and mastered by the legendary Bob Ludwig (Rolling Stones, U2, Pearl Jam, REM, Radiohead). The album saw the band’s best first-week sales ever, exceeding those of all three previous major label releases and debuted at #18 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and #1 on the Heatseekers chart for the East North Central region.

Let's Get to the Heart of Things

"Music is our everything; we live and die for it. It’s our way to be human, so making songs that make that deep human connection is really important for The Used." In a new age of releasing music in a socially-distanced world, Bert McCracken and The Used face the challenge of human connection when physical connection is taboo. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.

After years of introspection and coming-of-age, Ever Eden has embraced their own struggles, as haunting as it may feel, to create a community that's turned out to be much larger than the band itself.
