"Element Eighty" is a hard rock band from Tyler, Texas, consisting of Dave Galloway (vocals), Matt Woods (guitarist), Ryan Carroll (drums) and Zack Bates (bass). In April of 2003, the band inked a deal with Universal/Republic Records. After releasing their self-titled debut album on October 28th, 2003, the band hit the road with such acts as Sevendust, Ill Nino, Flaw, 40 Below Summer, and Mushroomhead. After several months of touring however, the band could see that the label was not working for them. There was no video, no promotion, and a lack of interest in elevating the band to the next level. All of these things eventually led to the band's departure from the label in late 2004. Soon after their departure from the label and managers, original bassist Roon decided to leave the band. The band’s current bassist, Bates, quickly filled the position. They released their third album, titled "The Bear", in November 2005 through Texas Cries Records.
