Tee Pee Records' artist Elks is offering the new track "White Fang Learns to Hate" at this location. The new track comes from the Brooklyn band's forthcoming debut "Destined for the Sun," available on September 13 through Tee Pee Records.
"Destined for the Sun" was recorded by Brendan Tobin (Made of Babies) at Translator Audio.
Elks bassist/vocalist Don Stewart comments on the album's concept:
"The EP is about the peaceful inhabitants of a planet colonized by an expanding empire who are imprisoned in a golden space hulk, then sent hurtling towards the nearest sun. Without food or water they are forced to eat the flesh of their kin while the heat from the approaching sun slowly cooks them alive. Eventually they're knocked off course and the ship crash lands on an inhabitable planet, where the unlucky survivors begin to rebuild their society. This song in particular is about the moment when they launch their redemption ship, the White Fang, to extract revenge."

1.) White Fang Learns to Hate
2.) Fall of the Starchitect
3.) Two Moons of Mars
4.) Destined for the Sun
