For their new album, The Collective & The Individual, The Elephant In The Room brought Casey Crescenzo (The Dear Hunter, The Receiving End Of Sirens) on board as producer--or rather, he believed in the band so much that he approached them.
"The first time I heard The Elephant In The Room was at a show we both played a little over a year ago. I loved the songwriting as well as the melody and harmony, and approached Alfred [Vitale, vocals/guitar] about potentially working together on a record," says Crescenzo. "With an open and honest approach, the result is a full and focused album and six months of work completed in only a few weeks. I know this was only possible as a result of the immediate personal comfort we all felt from day one."
Today, we unveil "Ghost" from the album, a "love song of sorts," as Vitale explains it. "It's a borderline morbid take on love and what happens after a loved one passes. This is a way to show my lasting love in my creepy life-after-death way."
