Since forming out of the wooded state of Oregon, Elenora has garnered attention and fan support from around the States. The release of their Kris Crummett (Dance Gavin Dance, Lower Definition, Drop Dead Gorgeous) produced In Reality I Am in 2009 helped them become a band to watch in many eyes. After a member change, the band set out on a ten day mini-tour with Apollo and A Constant North.
