Schematic, the new project from Dave Elkins, the former lead-singer and primary songwriter for the band Mae has posted a music video for the song “All The Birds Are Singing”. The track appears on Schematic’s debut effort, “Color (n.) Inside The Lines”, out on December 3 via Spartan Records.
After a very successful decade fronting the beloved indie-powerhouse Mae, Dave Elkins packed his bags and relocated to Nashville for the start of something new. With four LP’s, three EP’s, and over half a million album sales under his belt worldwide, Elkins longed to refine his approach to making records, to experiment with the unknown. The result emerged under the moniker Schematic, and in the form of a brilliant and breathtakingly complex record, Color (n.) Inside The Lines.
Color (n.) Inside The Lines is available to pre-order on the following formats: Digital, CD, and Gatefold Double Vinyl. Three vinyl variants are also available for pre-order.
Limited copies of the CD and vinyl will be available at indie retailers for Record Store Day’s “Black Friday” on November 29th. The vinyl will be a retail exclusive – Transparent Blood Red Gatefold Double Vinyl. Only 500 of those are being made.
