ELISIUM is a 3-piece band from central (Fredericksburg) Virginia. Their sound is a unique blend of dark rock, and modern metal. Most often compared to Tool and Chevelle, ELISIUM sounds huge for only being 3 guys. Vocalist/Guitarist Nate Compton, and brother Kirb Compton on bass hold down the harmonies with ease, while Nathan Thomas (called “Junior”) on drums keeps them in line.
The band is independent, and has been touring full time since June of 2013. Having played 43 states, and over 300 shows in 2 years, ELISIUM is no stranger to hard work and dedication. They can be found living in their van almost any day of the week, traveling the country in search of cool new places, and fans of great music. ELISIUM has toured with names such as Saving Abel, Another Lost Year, Art of Dying, Wayland, Shallow Side, Zach Myers (of Shinedown) and many more.
Their latest album, “Significantius Vitae”, was recorded by Jose Urquiza (3 Years Hollow) and was released in November 2017. All of their music can be found on digital marketplaces like iTunes and Google Play, as well as the band’s website and at shows. They have 5 albums out currently – Things They Carried (2008), Becoming (2012), All In A Day (2014), Shoreline (2015), Significantius Vitae (2017).
