Elder Statesmen are a three piece rock group from Baltimore, MD. and Philadelphia, PA. (Two of the members live in Baltimore and the other in Philly.) The Statesmen recently released their first album in November of 2006, entitled, "Exchanging Gifts” and are currently in the studio working on their next album scheduled for a late 2008 release. In this short time, they have shared the bill with Dischord stalwarts Medications and Channels, indie rock darlings Margot and the Nuclear So and So''s and Beggar''s Banquet recording artists Film School. They have played in venues around Philadelphia, Wilmington, Annapolis and Baltimore and they are slowly making their way up and down the east coast.
An Elder Statesmen song can be a two and a half minute pop tune, or a six minute composition with various time changes, mood swings and grinding halts. They don''t have a formula-they do what comes natural. Noise and dissonant chords often meet captivating, addictive melodies, backed by a crushing rhythm section, ready to turn the beat around at any point. The music makes for an explosive and enthralling live experience that must be seen to be appreciated.
