El Ten Eleven Got All Their Gear Stolen, but They Still Gave Us Two Exclusive DownloadsBy Noisey Staff
Planning a tour is one of the biggest challenges a band has to face. Months and months of planning goes into this endeavor with, typically, not much fiscal incentive or health benefits. You're lucky if you break even on your tour and even luckier if you make some cash to put towards your band fund. The memories are great, the shows can be good, and you can gain some exposure for your band, but logistically, there's more of a loss than a gain.
With that understanding, one of the worst fears of a touring musician is getting their gear stolen. The loss exponentially grows into something beyond finance. It turns into thousands of fans disappointed not being able to see their favorite band, venues upset that the show has to be canceled, and a huge slap in the face to the artist. Sadly, this is exactly what happened to El Ten Eleven (Outside of their studio, in broad daylight) just three days before the start of their tour and a week before the release of their new remix album, Transitions Remixed.
El Ten Eleven has created a series of pre-order packages of Transitions Remixed with a handful of cool extras like a lifetime guest-list spot. The album will be completely steamable via their Bandcamp as of tomorrow, and available for purchase on April 9th through Fake Record Label which features remixes by Slow Magic, Com Truise and many others. And despite their gear loss, El Ten Eleven just graced us with two exclusive downloads from Transitions Remixed, from two Anticon artists, D33J and Odd Nosdamn. Check below for downloads, El Ten Eleven's tour dates (yes they are still going), and more information about the stolen gear.
Transitions Remixed will be available tomorrow from Fake Record Label, and will hit all other digital stores on April 9.
