Eli Young Band Talk Return to Country Roots on New Album ‘Fingerprints’

After a more pop-oriented detour, Texas four-piece returns to the sound that made them such a must-see live act

Eli Young Band will release their new album Fingerprints on June 16th. The record is billed as a return to form for the group, who cut their teeth in the dancehalls of their native Texas.

“All of us know and understand that there’s a love for these songs that’s a little deeper than it’s been in the past,” says singer Mike Eli, who makes up the band with guitarist James Young, drummer Chris Thompson and bass player Jon Jones.

New single “Skin and Bones” is a love letter to Eli’s wife, and delivers on the group’s mission to reconnect with their country sound. Eli Young Band recorded Fingerprints in Nashville with producers Ross Copperman and Jeremy Stover.

Long known for their electrifying live shows, the four-piece are currently on the road, headlining theaters from California to Maine. They’re set to play Nashville’s CMA Music Festival in June and Chicago’s Windy City Smokeout in July.
