The new Elf Power album "Walking with the Beggar Boys" is coming out April 6 on
Orange Twin Records.
Andrew, Laura and Aaron are joined by new guitarist Eric Harris (Olivia Tremor Control) and bassist
Craig Mcquiston (the Glands) to create their best, most varied album yet.
Musically it's all over the place, ranging from sleazy, T-Rex-ish rockers to psychedelic electronica
to Southern rock romps (The title track features a duet with folk rock legend Vic Chesnutt !). It's a
masterpiece. Buy it.
Extensive world tour starts in April. Dates will be posted soon.

Upcoming show at the40 Watt on December 5th!
July 21, 2003
We're playing a show in Athens at the 40 Watt on Aug. 22nd.
We're also recording a new record over the next few months,
probably to be released next February or March.
After our tour in Europe last November - December
we took a few months off to do our own things. Aaron started
an ESG cover band called Tiny Sticks and made a bunch of
homemade wine (good stuff too from what i can recall) ...Laura
worked on the Orange Twin
label and land group, went to Italy , got drunk and rode around Rome on motor
scooters with Fabio Chincas, our amazing driver from our last European tour
...I spent a few months in Chicago, writing some songs , wandering the streets in
the freezing cold, then mooched off REM's generosity and goodwill by tagging
along on their summer European tour.
now we're ready to rock it once again, so we hope to see you on tour when
the record comes out.
