Elkland was an American band from Horseheads, New York. Originally named Goat Explosion, the group took the new name from the nearby town of Elkland, Pennsylvania. The band was on the Columbia Records label, a division of Sony BMG Music Entertainment.

From April to June 2005, Elkland performed as the opening act for all concerts in Erasure's tour of North America.

As of May 2006, Elkland split, supposedly on what singer Jon Pierce has said were amicable terms.

Immediately on the heels of the end of Elkland, frontman Jon Pierce formed The Drums with former Goat Explosion member Jacob Graham of Orlando's Flashlight Party.[1]
