Up to Eleven
Up To Eleven formerly known as SpitFire, was born in 2006, out of the common passion for heavy music shared by 4 music lovers. As a result of a long series of rehearsals, Up To Eleven had their debut in July 2006, covering their favorite bands and songs. The band’s own style carries influences from grunge, metal and alternative.
Throughout the years Up To Eleven played in clubs such as: Utopia, Basement, Big Mamou and Suburbia, opening for Nostradameus (Sweden) or sharing the stage with different bands such as Luna Amara, NeXus, Voodoo.
In April 2008 the band was invited to hold a live performance followed by an interview at the Autostrada TVR Show.
The summer of 2008 gave the band the opportunity to be part of several festival line ups: Dacorum Bike Fest, Pro Bikers Party(where they shared the stage with Act, Quartz, Altar, Luna Amara, Directia 5), Academia de Rock. In the fall of the same year they performed at the Global Battle of the Bands competition.
2009 was a busy year filled with achievements and lots of music. The row of concerts held in 2009 culminated with the band signing up for the ''Maximum Rock Support for Underground'' contest and winning the first prize. This prize came as a huge step ahead, an achievement and, to the same extent, a recognition of the band’s merit.
As a consequence, the beginning of 2010 was the landmark for a fresh new start in the band’s history sealed with a big change they have recently made. Besides being taken under the guidance of a professional manager the band has made another big change, one that they have been considering for a long time now. After all the musical experience they have gathered along the years the guys found proper to change the name of their band into something more representative.
Formerly known as SpitFire, Lax, Bobo, Liviu and Leo are now “Up to Eleven” – name chosen as a metaphor of their huge passion for music, hard-working nature and desire to reach the top. With their engines up to eleven the guys are now working on the release of their first album, “Escape
