RED ELEVEN are once again serving a new tasting from its upcoming fourth long play. The song is called “Before I Fall” and includes all the ingredients required for a melancholic hit song down to the creamy guitar solo! The band’s vocalist Toni Kaikkonen describes the song as follows:
“It is a third single from our upcoming album “Handled with Chaos”. It’s epic, moody, easy listening song with catchy melodies. A story about regrets, forgiveness and how to cope when things feel out of your control. In the moment before you die, you see your life, a span of film strip… they say. It’s definitely one of my favorite songs on the album.”
“Before I Fall” will be released together with an atmospheric lyric video created by Anssi “Abi” Korhonen. Red Eleven has announced that “Handled with Chaos” -album will be released next April.

The story of Red Eleven began in 2009 under the name ‘Project Red Eleven’, when Teemu Liekkala and Tony Kaikkonen recorded a couple of songs together. Then one day in 2011 Tony played these songs to his buddies Pasi Pasanen and Petteri Vaalimaa, and the guys instantly thought “This should definitely be a real band!”. Thus, finally in January 2012 the “project” -part was cut off and Red Eleven started rehearsing. After few rehearsals J-V Hintikka joined the band. With the line-up now steady, they rehearsed 11 songs (conveniently) and have entered the studio in April 2012 to record their first full length album.
