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.

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.
