Episode 027: Dave Elkins (10-Year Mae Retrospective)

Mae_2_middle

We’re back with another look at an album celebrating its tenth anniversary: The Everglow by Mae. Released on March 29, 2005, The Everglow marked Mae’s second release for Tooth & Nail – and an album that to this day remains their most beloved. The Everglow is a rare concept album that doesn’t collapse under its own self-importance, instead brimming with optimism and limitless potential while seamlessly marrying indie-rock and emo. The band is celebrating the album’s anniversary this year; in January, they embarked on a short tour and will be bringing The Everglow to cities across the country this spring and summer.

I caught up with frontman Dave Elkins to chronicle the album’s creation, how it catapulted them onto a tour with one of his all-time favorite bands, and to learn a little about the new music brewing in the Mae camp. Enjoy!
