Just frontman Chris Higdon remains from the initial lineup of Elliott, a Louisville emo band known because of its extreme stage presence, replete with piano and percussion samples. Higdon, bassist Jonathan Mobley, and drummer Ben Lord produced Elliott following the break up of their prior band, Falling Forwards. After launching the In Transit EP with Preliminary Information in 1996, Kevin Ratterman changed Lord and Empathy’s Jay Palumbo emerged aboard. Elliott produced its full-length debut with U.S. Music on Revelation Information two years afterwards. The band after that documented another EP with each label, with each cover displaying a music group member jumping off a cliff. After touring tirelessly throughout the U.S. and launching False Cathedral in the summertime of 2000, Mobley and Palumbo took their keep. Benny Clark (the Loved) got over lead acoustic guitar and Jason Skaggs (Eleven Eleven) became the brand new bassist.
