El Ten Eleven celebrate debut album anniversary with special reissue and box set

Los Angeles based instrumental outfit El Ten Eleven are celebrating the 15 year anniversary of their self-titled debut album, and to mark the occasion, the duo of Kristian Dunn and Tim Fogarty are reissuing the record and releasing a special limited edition box set featuring their first five albums. “When we first put it out there was very little reaction”, said Dunn speaking about their debut record. “But the reaction we did get was very passionate, which was exciting for us because we felt like we were on to something.” He added:

“When we first started and we made that first record, I was really worried that people would only be interested in the novelty of us looping and playing everything by ourselves as just two people. I was worried that they wouldn’t be moved by the music. But as it turned out, although people were impressed that it was just the two of us, they love the music.“

Predeceding both releases, El Ten Eleven have shared ‘Fanshawe (Live from Asheville)’, a bonus track lifted from the forthcoming reissue. Take a listen now.

El Ten Eleven: 15th anniversary edition will be out on September 27th through Joyful Noise Recordings.

El Ten Eleven premiere animated video for ‘Yellow Bridges’

Los Angeles based instrumental outfit El Ten Eleven are set to release their fifth studio album, Transitions, on November 6th via their own Fake Record Label.

The duo of Kristian Dunn and Tim Fogarty turned to kickstarter to fund Transitions and ended up exceeding their goal by more than four times. Kickstarter backers will be able to get their hands on the new record on September 25th.

Ahead of the album, El Ten Eleven have just dropped ‘Yellow Bridges’, the second single off Transitions. ‘Yellow Bridges’ comes backed by B-side ‘3K’.

‘Yellow Bridges’, titled after the yellow bridges in Fogarty’s hometown of Pittsburgh, has also just received the visual treatment. The pair premiered yesterday a video directed by British animator Cyriak who thanked El Ten Eleven for giving him “the long dreamed-for opportunity to make a video out of 2 twigs and a leaf”.
