Pinegrove announce new album 11:11 & release new track
November 11, 2021
November 11, 2021 – Today, New Jersey-based group Pinegrove announced their new album 11:11 will come out on January 28th through Rough Trade Records. Self-produced with mixing by Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie, The Decemberists, Tegan & Sara), 11:11 is the band’s fifth studio album following 2020’s Marigold. They also shared their lead single “Alaska,” a gallop of dense, bracing guitar-fueled rock that lurches out of the gate with tectonic force, boasting hooks at every turn.

Fronted by singer/guitarist Evan Stephens Hall, Pinegrove explore multiple meanings with 11:11, as they have with albums in the past. The title could be taken many different ways. On one hand, the numerals could resemble a row of trees – a nod to the album’s recurring theme of climate crisis, but also a playful way of self-titling the record. On the other, the numbers could represent numerology’s symbol for chance, coincidence, and synchronicity. They stripe like corduroy, or cornfields, or people shoulder to shoulder. Hall acknowledges it all.
“Calling the record 11:11 should be a heartening statement, though there’s certainly a range of emotion across the album,” said Hall. “There’s much to be angry about right now, and a lot of grief to metabolize. But hopefully, the loudest notes are of unity, collectivity, and community. I want to open a space for people to feel all these things.”
A deluxe version of the album is available from our webstore – pressed on green colour vinyl, featuring a split opening cover, containing an insert and a booklet.
