Elephant Gym is a three-piece band from Taiwan that has toured extensively in Asia, Europe, and North America. Last Year, they performed at Fuji Rock Festival '22 in Japan, one of the greatest music festivals in the world, and their subsequent tour was a great success. They are now one of the most influential Asian indie bands.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the release of their debut EP "BALANCE," and Elephant Gym will go on a world tour from the end of 2023 to 2024 with a new album called, "WORLD". The title "WORLD" indicates not only that the band has gone global, but also that it has transcended music genres and boundaries. It expresses the band's desire to transcend the boundaries and limitations of borders, races, nationalities, gender, and music genres.

Prior to the album release, Elephant Gym releases two-song single "Happy Prince" digitally on November 28.

1. "Happy Prince (feat. YILE LIN)" has the light and catchy three-piece band sounds reminiscent of the early Elephant Gym, but at the same time, it has a strong and powerful rock sound with a sense of their growth over the past 10 years. This song features YILE LIN, a singer-songwriter representing the Taiwanese indie scene, who used to a vocalist for the indie pop band "Freckles" and the shoegaze band "BOYZ&GIRL".

2. "Ocean In The Night (feat. Hom ShenHao, KCWO)" is a song with a horn section that was performed at Fuji Rock Festival '22 and caused a great sensation. It is one of Elephant Gym's best-known songs, featuring Hom ShenHao, a vocalist of Taiwanese alternative rock band "Touming Magazine". In this song, the band accompanies Kaohsiung City Wind Orchestra, the professional brass band from their hometown. The horn arrangement of this representative song is a perfect way to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Elephant Gym.
