The Elixirs / Press

“Their album, Long Gone, starts with “Water and Bread,” which will knock you out of your boots. The title track salutes Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, and the Dead Kennedys at the same time. They, like me, have a serious crush on psychobilly girls, as is evidenced by the song “Tits Deep.” The drums are wicked on “Cry for Me,” and the band swings like the best honky-tonk bands on “Door of Freedom.” The Elixirs make no attempt to hide their love of metal and doom rock. “17-12,” “Soul,” “Cowboy Rot,” and “Sea of Lies” let them flex their Danzig muscles and “Torn Rose” would be at home on any decent metal album. There are good drinking songs, too. “Misery,” “Standing in the Rain” (with its great bass), and “This Kind of a Mood” will make you want to raise a glass. “Loser” is a song that will make you raise a glass and then possibly smash it over your head as it kicks into serious rock. If you like psychobilly laced with doom and meta”

“With a re-release via the excellent Texas independent Psycho A-Go-Go Records, Long Gone the debut album from Indiana cowpunk/psychobilly band The Elixirs returns to exhilarate and exhaust the world with its riots of passion driven energy fuelled rock n roll. The release is a nineteen track bonanza of contagious eager to devour slices of often bruising, occasionally provoking, and always thrilling adventure, the songs seeded in the devilry of horror, outlaw infamy, and salacious rock n roll roguishness with an impossibly infectious temptation from start to finish across the whole album.”

“I really enjoyed that this band has such a great and classic sound! I'm thinking they should be featured on a soundtrack for a Tarantino double feature! Really great rock n roll that you can easily sit and listen to while you dick around on Facebook, or drink 15 beers and get a little rowdy in the bar jamming out to it! I love versatility in my music! I always have some music playing, but I'm not always jamming it over PA's! These guys were immediately starred on my Spotify playlist! I highly recommend you check out their stuff! Click the links below and see if you find your new favorite song! Rock on boys!”

“The Elixirs have been tearing up the U.S. Midwest for a few years now with their brand of "Original American Rock 'N' Roll". What this Indiana band really plays is a mix of cow punk and psychobilly that at times sounds like heavy duty rock n roll. "Long Gone" is the bands debut album and it comes at us with 19 original tracks and I gotta say this is one interesting and kool disc. Highlights include: "Long Gone", "Misery", "Faster Than Hell", and "Tits Deep". The Elixirs play a unique brand of psychobilly, this is loud, proud and at times in your face. "Long Gone" is an impressive debut by a band that is diffidently worth keeping an eye on. Check it out.”

“This wasn’t a album made with a cookie cutter, each song had its own unique sound pertaining to the Elixirs nice blend of genres. I enjoyed listening to the album and would recommend it to any fans of Rockabilly, punk, or country.”

“The whole album is good, every song and I would recommend it to anyone who likes cow punk or psychobilly and maybe grew up listening to country and wants music with a sharper edge and actually says something besides the same old psychobilly dead girl-ghoul friend zombies and isn’t a bunch of covers of everything just to make a psychobilly or punk version of some old song. It’s all new and original and it is good… buy it and enjoy!”

“Dan (vocals), Andrew Whitt (Upright Bass), and of course, Joe King (Drums) will take you on a joy ride that is Faster than Hell and you will wonder why your hair is a mess and your glass is empty and how the hour got stolen by the devil without you even noticing. It’s a really good time and you’ll want seconds and even thirds.”

"The Elixirs NEED to be seen live! The voice, the drumming, the upright are a perfect blend of serotonin for the brain! One of the best...in Indiana!" - Sabrina Turner Perdieu of The Backstage Pass.info (Facebook Wall Comment)

“The Elixirs are a great punk band from Indiana. They really do put on a great live show. Though they only have a few demo recordings they do have plans for an official release in the future. They have also played a lot of great local shows and all over the state....”
