Gain Eleven hails from the western woods of Arvika, Sweden. Formed back in late 2012, with very huge passion for music but little to no experience in the music industry - The guys knew that this was going to be hard work. Over 3 years later - Gain Elevens debut album "All in" is now finally out. Going from being a locally known band in Arvika to reaching out in different countries in Europe with their unique brand of rock n’ roll leaves a question - What now?
The band started out as Hannes (Drums), Martin(Bass) & Vidar(Guitar) went to the Music High School in Arvika together. After graduating, they decided to form a band. With Vidar being the only one who knew David(Frontman), he asked him right away & Dave accepted the offer to join for a jam. The intention of the first rehearsal was to play a few Black Stone Cherry covers. After 5 hours of pure sweaty rock n' roll, beer & cigarettes - The band had already begun writing original material. 6 weeks later - They had their first gig ever as an opening act for the band "Smash into Pieces".
After 2 years since formation the band had achieved alot in their career, from releasing a 3 song ep, played a couple successful shows in Berlin & just building up their brand of rock n' roll... It was now or never at this time - To start record a debut album. The band entered Leon Music Studios (Mustasch, Enforcer) with Gustav Ydenius as their technichian.
With 6 months of cash savings from each one of the band, over 2 years of songwriting, a total of 32 days in the studio & a hell of a lot of paperwork - Gain Elevens debut album "All in" was released on new years eve 1/1 2016. That explains the fireworks.
The album contains everything a good album should contain - Good songs. What are good songs? For Gain Eleven it is pitchin' vocals, fast party riffs, disco bass lines & hard smacking drums with influences from Royal Republic, Danko Jones & Foo Fighters to name a few. 2016 was the premier year for Gain Eleven to go "All in", as the album states – and the journey has just begun.
Now – Gain Eleven stood as the international winners of Emergenza Festival 2016 ° Taubertal Festival, currently making them one of the worlds-best live bands to experience. So – if you like it fast, heavy, entertaining & tight – then welcome to the party –Gain Eleven awaits you!
