Gifts From Enola was a four-piece instrumental post-rock band from Harrisonburg, Virginia. Their music is characterized with a strong riff-orientated guitar sound along with the soft-loud approach prevalent in some post-rock. They have released three full length albums and a split album. In July 2010, the band released their self-titled third full-length album.
Gifts From Enola was formed by friends Andrew Barnes and Nate Dominy while they were in their freshman year of college in late 2005. After starting to perform and record in 2006, they added CJ DeLuca and Jordan Endahl to the lineup and recorded their first album Loyal Eyes Betrayed the Mind which they self-released later that year. Loyal Eyes was commercially well received, and led to them being named 'pick of the month' for September 2006 by the prominent music website TheSilentBallet.com. In 2007 they went on their first U.S. tour, which increased national awareness of the band.
