New Few and Far Between & Uncut Releases!

We are very pleased to announce TWO exciting releases that will be available on August 9th.

The first is a limited edition 7" from Detroit (and New York's) Few and Far Between and Toronto's Uncut. If you live in the Detroit area, you've likely seen these two bands grace the stage together. Both bands contribute brand new tracks, unavailable anywhere else! The 7" is limited to only 300 copies worldwide. Only 50 will be available for purchase online.

The second release is a remix album from Few and Far Between. All 11 songs off last years "We're All Safe" have been re-imagined and remixed by eleven different artists on the new record "Farewell Sea". Similar to the 7" above, this CD is limited to 300 copies, with only 50 available for purchase online.

Both records will be available for purchase at the upcoming benefit show for Megan Stieg & Brain Tumor Research on August 6th. If you don't know what we're talking about, go here or read a few posts down. As if you didn't need a better reason to attend the show aside from it being for a great cause, it will also likely be the only place you can score these new records unless you get your orders in online.

If you're familiar with Elkion, then odds are you're familiar with the artwork of Mark Penxa. Mark handled the art direction for both new releases (as well as the majority of our records). Please make sure to stop by and see some of his other work online here.
