October 2015 – After appearing at their first ever CMJ Music Marathon this month, Eleventh Ward adds another first to their arsenal by being accepted to play along the route of the 2015 TCS New York City Marathon. Runners from around the country and around the globe far and wide come to compete and be a part of this illustrious event and now Eleventh Ward hopes to keep them in step along their journey.

Lead vocalist, Chris Saunders looks forward to the event: “This is just a great opportunity to support these amazing athletes throughout the day and put a little hop in their step while providing the spectators with something to jam out to while they’re waiting for their loved-ones to pass by. It should be a fun day.”

New York City music hot spot, The Bitter End, will be the site of the celebrations on April 26th, 2014.

New York, NY 4.23.14 – Local band, Eleventh Ward, will be celebrating the launch of their debut recording with a show at The Bitter End this Saturday 26 April. The self-titled EP, recorded at The Gallery and Atlantic Sound Studios in Brooklyn (Bjork, JET, St. Vincent), was mastered by Grammy-award winning sound engineer Blair Wells (Jay Z, Kanye West, Q Tip, John Legend). The lynchpin of the four-member band, which has been playing in New York City clubs (Arlene’s Grocery, Connolly’s, The Local 269) for over two years is singer/songwriter Chris Saunders, who has been a regular on the City’s music scene for four years. Lead guitarist Greg Llewellyn, bassist Ben Krupit and drummer Jamel Hopkins complete the ensemble. The newly released EP of 4 songs written by Chris and Greg gives a taste of Eleventh Ward’s soulful rock style, plus the bluesy “Woke Up Missing You” and the reggae-inspired “Woke Up, Wake Up”. Eleventh Ward’s performance at The Bitter End, 147 Bleecker Street, starts at 9pm on 26 April.  The following night the group will be playing at a fundraiser for the charity, the Burkina Women’s Education Fund (BWEF), and its US counterpart Chance for Change at Arlene’s Grocery, 95 Stanton Street at 7:45 pm. The newly released EP is currently available on iTunes, AmazonMP3, and eMusic, amongst other distributors.
