Finger Eleven will be rolling into Kelowna Wednesday, Oct. 28 to perform at the Kelowna Community Theatre.
Finger Eleven is a Canadian rock band that first formed in their Burlington, Ont. high school in 1989 under the name, the Rainbow Butt Monkeys.
It was in 2003 when, under their new name, they released the self-titled album ‘Finger Eleven that their star rose.
The album includes the sleeper hit single One Thing which pushed the band into mainstream.
The song was a hit on rock, pop, and adult radio charts; the success of the single earned the band its first US Gold Album (500,000 copies) and Canadian Platinum (100,000 copies). “One Thing” reached No. 16 in the U.S., and had exposure on TV series’ Scrubs, Smallville and Third Watch.
Finger Eleven’s fifth studio album titled ‘Them vs. You vs. Me,’ was released on March 6, 2007, again produced by Johnny K. “Paralyzer,” the album’s first single, became the band’s most successful single to date, earning them their first career Top Ten hit on the U.S. Hot 100 in November 2007, and reaching No. 1 in both Canada, and U.S. rock charts. In addition, ‘Them vs. You vs. Me’ won the 2008 Juno Award for Rock Album of the Year.
When Finger Eleven decided to start writing the follow-up to their 2010 album Life Turns Electric, the band members all agreed they wanted to do something different, they just weren’t exactly sure what that was. So, over a two-and-a-half year period, they decided to try a bit of everything over a multitude of writing sessions.
The result was ‘Five Crooked Lines,’ the band’s sixth studio album; and first album in five years. Now on a North American tour in support of that album, Finger Eleven is armed with their familiar, aggressive sound, reminiscent of their original vibe, eager to share their new music with their fans and get back onto the tour circuit.
