Finger Eleven Announces New Album, “Five Crooked Lines”

Credit: Dustin RabinFinger Eleven is returning with their first new album in five years. Entitled Five Crooked Lines, the new record will be released on July 31. You can listen to the album's first single, "Wolves and Doors," now on YouTube.

"When we started the band, we just wanted to blow everyone away with force and power and make them take notice of us," says guitarist James Black in a statement. "We wanted [Five Crooked Lines] to be that same kind of punch in the face."

"On our past couple albums, we've taken full advantage of the 'studio,'" he continues. "We've had songs with hundreds of tracks, some with forty tracks of guitar alone. This time, we wanted to keep the songs so raw they sounded like they do in the rehearsal room."

Five Crooked Lines will be Finger Eleven's first album since 2010's Life Turns Electric. That record was the followup to the band 2007's album, Them vs. You vs. Me, which spawned the band's biggest hit in "Paralyzer."

Finger Eleven will be touring throughout the summer with headlining dates, festival appearances and shows with Three Days Grace.
