BORDERLINE ELEVEN is a group of guys from Hooksett, New Hampshire who started jamming in a basement for something fun to do in their spare time back in November, 2005.
They set out to create alternative rock music with positive messages and clean lyrics. After mastering some carefully selected cover songs to be sure they could even play well together, they gave songwriting a go. A monthly open mic night was available at their Concord, NH church, so they showed up regularly to test out their music. The response was very positive and encouraged them to keep going.
In the winter of 2007, they won their annual high school Battle as a sophomore band (a first) and then a local Battle in town. These events started them into serious gigging. Word of mouth spread and by the end of 2007, there were 30 performances under their belts.
Their demo turned into an EP at the request of their growing fan base, and "Pacific Wasteland" was released in the summer of 2006. Their first full-length CD, "Read Between The Lines", was released nationally on 1/4/11 and is available all over the WWW. See below for direct links to iTunes, Amazon.com and more.
BORDERLINE ELEVEN is a band with a heart for their generation and a desire to positively influence their world. In March 2008, they repeated as school champs (again a first) and opened for ELEVENTYSEVEN and THE FOLD at Summer Kickoff on May 30, 2008 in Manchester, NH. In August, they participated in SoulFest, a gig won on OurStage.com and were presented as an emerging artist. They continue to work with regional and national artists, adding bands like RECYCLED PERCUSSION, JOHN REUBEN, BOBBY BISHOP, THE CLASSIC CRIME, EVERYDAY SUNDAY and SILOAM to the list.
BORDERLINE ELEVEN is a fun band to experience LIVE with their catchy beats and high energy. They WILL put your event into HIGH GEAR!!
