AREA 11, a four-piece alt-rock band from Bristol, have just released their brand new LP, ‘Modern Synthesis‘, on July 1st via Cooking Vinyl. The album currently sits at #13 in the UK Official Album Chart at the midweek stage.
To coincide with the release, AREA 11 are thrilled to reveal their brand new video for ‘The Contract‘, taken from ‘Modern Synthesis’.
“The Contract is a song about compromise, and what happens when you compromise too much. In relationships, in society, in a band, we all have to make decisions for the good of the group rather than for ourselves, but at what point does that start to erase your sense of self, and self respect? Musically it’s a compromise between dark, aggressive lyrics and bright, optimistic instrumentation.
In the past 12 months, the band have amassed an astonishing social media following – that puts a lot of established bands to shame, with over 100K global subscribers and 10 million plays on their YouTube channel. This has led to two self-booked & sold out UK Headline tours – with their July 2015 show at London’s ‘The Barfly’, selling out in under 48hours! Their most recent UK tour, last Winter saw the band step up their audience to to 500 capacity venues, selling out their merchandise and music.
The band released ‘Versus‘, taken from Modern Synthesis in November ’15, which has an incredible 138,000+ views already, and are now unveiling their next track and lyric video for ‘Watchmaker’.
