    Since releasing their debut album Southern Gothic on EMI’s Virgin Records June 21, The Constellations have been no strangers to the road; in fact, they are living on it! Having previously opened for Snoop Dogg, Hockey, Greyboy Allstars and RJD2, this Atlanta based 8-piece band will continue to tour extensively adding dates with Detroit based Electric Six throughout the fall. Eight members? That is a lot of people on a tour bus, that is for sure.

    The Constellations spent two years writing and recording Southern Gothic with producer Ben H. Allen. It leads you into Atlanta stomping grounds afterhours, a spectacle rife with seedy scenes and eccentric personalities, propelled by a manic energy that hustles the audience deeper into the unexpected. Your tour guide on this madcap adventure is the magnetic frontman and vocalist Elijah Jones—the ringleader of the twisted circus that is the band. Sounds like fun and the type of aural journey I want to indulge in.
