    ELEVENTH HE REACHES LONDON hail from Perth, Western Australia; a vast area of land separated from the rest of the country by an expanse of desert. This isolation has afforded Eleventh the luxury of being able to grow organically, independent of the clichés and trends often present in larger communities. The result is a band that draws on inspiration from all corners to create an original, dynamic sound whose whole is far greater than the sum of its parts.

    After first taking to the stage in 2003, releasing a sought-after demo as well as appearing on numerous compilations, Eleventh self-released their debut album in December 2005. “The Good Fight For Harmony” received acclaim throughout the world, sat atop of the local charts for several months, and sold out of its first pressing within 8 weeks of release.

    Eleventh’s sophomore effort “Hollow Be My Name” was released on Good Cop Bad Cop Records in 2009 to critical acclaim. Scores of reviews were written praising the album, which experiments with potent, hateful lyricism and bleak, heavy soundscapes, contrasted with melodic beauty. There was no doubt that Eleventh had released their finest work when the album appeared in Top 10 lists for 2009 across the world.

    Throughout their career, Eleventh He Reaches London have supported Coheed and Cambria, Cult of Luna, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge, ISIS, Against Me! and Les Savy Fav, and played the In The Pines, Taste of Chaos and Soundwave festivals, alongside bands such as The Offspring, Incubus, Killswitch Engage, Rise Against and The Used. Along the way, the band has won three West Australian Music Industry Association (WAMi) Awards from seven nominations, and received considerable radio airplay across Australia.

    In 2010, Eleventh have continued to write the follow up to “Hollow Be My Name”, venturing even deeper into the sonic abyss and presenting new material to a select few shows in Perth. Eleventh’s 2010 national tour will see the band in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, performing much loved favourites from their first two albums as well as showcasing some new material.
