“I blend my vocal sound with the instruments to keep the pace and emotion steady and relative to the theme of the song.” Elysion Fields knows that their career will be driven forward by new technologies and by their fans. “Being a musician can be hard if you’re not technologically savvy,” explains Josh Woods, Guitarist. “We’re already experimenting with QR codes and using them at our merch table and on our stage scrims. Fans can scan the codes to receive discounts on t-shirts, free downloads, exclusive videos.
The possibilities are endless.” All members actively communicate with fans and keep them engaged by hosting contests for free merch, sharing sneak peeks of new music, and sending personalized appreciation letters. “During the writing process, we post videos of new riffs we’ve written. The fans tell us what they like and then we move forward with the song. We want to be able to provide them with the opportunity to feel that they’re a part of the creation process,” says Georgeson. This young band has already shared the stage with some of the brightest young bands of their genre such as August Burns Red, MyChildren MyBride, Miss May I, Veil of Maya, Misery Index, Texas in July, This or the Apocalypse, Four Letter Lie, We Came as Romans, Oceano, Darkest Hour, Motionless in White, Upon A Burning Body, & Despised Icon.
Elysion Fields’ fan-sourced live music video for the track "Legends" was selected to FUSE TV’s On Demand channel with Comcast for the month of December 2010, and their new single “Of Titans” has been selected to be featured in an upcoming horror film by the director of Puppetmaster.
