Dead At Eleven were formed during a gig at The Dublin Castle in Camden. Bandless singer, Clark, stood in the audience and was impressed with the rhythm section. Clark cornered them after the gig insisting that the band was terrible and that they should leave to start a new band with him. James and Seb were scared, intrigued and drunk so quickly agreed. On holiday in the South of France they saw a band with a great lead guitarist. Introducing themselves as Dead At Eleven (it had been a long day and the eleventh hour proved hard to handle) they convinced Henry to move to England with them. A few weeks later he turned up at the band’s rehearsal studio in North London with a Gretsch in his hand and a baguette in his trousers.
Dead At Eleven are Londoners from France and England whose shared love of Black Sabbath, Metallica, The Prodigy and Queens of the Stone Age has been influenced by this cross cultural heritage. Driving, relentless guitars and great vocal melodies form the spine of their sound, which for a rock band has a refreshing mission: to make people dance and forget about real life.
The band have played at various large venues such as the O2 Academy and The Garage and also played at the Cambridge Rock Festival, where they supported Jimi Hendrix’s brother Leon. They have released multiple EPs all to critical acclaim and their latest, “Overload”, has just been released by The Animal Farm.
