We have been talking about the acoustic album and tour for some time now. Here are all the details....
The Solaris acoustic album is being recorded with Alex Davies, Ed Minton and Dan Hetherton and we are just putting the finishing touches to all the tracks now. Strings, Acoustic Guitars and Piano all working in with our vocals and all the harmonies arrangements we have come up with. It has been and is lots of fun to be working on. A couple of surprises in there for you as well!
The acoustic CD is being put together with a DVD of the Kerrang TV live special and the music videos of “Discover”, “Solaris”, “Electric High” and “I Believe” all in a really cool package. We will not be putting the music up online as we prefer that everyone gets the CD and all that goes with it. Itunes will follow but not until December sometime. We are selling the CD/DVD in our own online store, it will not be in any record stores or online places anywhere else in the world. You can get it exclusively at http://www.elliotminor.com/store. If you order by October 16th then the CD/DVD when it ships on November 8th will come signed and personalized to you by Alex, Ed & Dan.
The tour of the UK and Ireland in support of the release will be Alex, Ed & Dan on stage with Acoustic Guitars, Piano and percussion with all 3 of us singing. We have chosen to play in all the smaller rooms to a limited audience so it can be up close and personal, no crash barriers and lots of fun! Get your tickets now as they are limited. It will be a very different show, lots of singing along and very relaxed. You may even find yourself sitting down!!!! Join us at one of these dates, at this time you can only buy tickets along with the CD/DVD in a bundle at http://www.elliotminor.com/store. Tickets will be mailed to you with the CD/DVD on November 8th.

We do not have the backing of a major label and do everything ourselves. We are truly indie, with your support in ordering the CD/DVD and tickets to our shows we can do what we do. Thanks....
