It's been 20 years since Eleven released their debut Awake In A Dream and to celebrate they will be letting loose a new release, Rarities. Our good friends over at Antiquiet spoke with Alain earlier in the year whilst he was on tour and he said:
"One month before Natasha got diagnosed with cancer, her, Jack Irons and I got together for two days and recorded five songs, but didn’t finish the words or melodies. So now I’m just getting the nerve to go and try to finish those songs, or maybe just leave them as it is. It’s some of our most powerful, muscular stuff."
The Rarities release will be a result of these sessions and is expected for release on 11/11/11. It will feature 8 unreleased tracks which were recorded between Thunk and Avantgard and will be the bands first release since 2003. It will also feature both original drummer Jack Irons and Greg Upchurch.
Now, today we get to listen to our first taste of Rarities once again thanks to our boys at Antiquiet. The track is titled "Rosebleed" and as Alain put it, it features som "insane Natasha clavinet and moog bass". Check it out in all it's glory below. Pollen Records will be putting out a Limited Edition 10” vinyl of "Rosebleed" and it'll available this Summer along with a digital release on iTunes. For more details head on over to the official Eleven site. Of course, hit play below first and enjoy the 6 minutes of goodness.
