Finger Eleven return with their fourth Wind-up Records release Them vs. You vs. Me on March 6th, 2007. Finger Eleven’s prior release, which was self-titled, has scanned 560,688 according to SoundScan, and has been certified gold by the R.I.A.A. The success of the release was largely fueled by the massive hit “One Thing,” which continues to be heard on radio stations across the country as a recurrent on their play lists.
The members of Finger Eleven collectively wrote / recorded over one hundred songs during the process of creating Them vs. You vs. Me. The influences are of varying styles from rock to country to dance to funk to old 60’s songs. Many of them were written by exchanging files over the Internet wherein one person would track a home recording, send it off, and then some one else would build on it and send it on down the line. Many of the sounds on the record were recorded during the demo process in locations as diverse as a castle, a lodge in Northern Canada and their homes. Beyond the obvious guitars and drums one would expect to hear on a Finger Eleven album, Them vs. You vs. Me features assorted keyboards, xylophones, a lap steel, violin, banjo, and other assorted instruments added in to the mix.
