Hit Single Not Completely Lucky For Finger Eleven

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Having a hit single was a stroke of luck for Finger Eleven, but lead singer Scott Anderson admits that luck doesn’t necessarily cross over to other avenues.

Finger Eleven hit the charts in 2003 with “One Thing” and Anderson says the strangest moment was when he heard the tune in a Las Vegas casino.

Anderson says: “I was at the slot machines and the song came on, and I figured it was a sign of luck so I immediately bet $100 and lost it in seven minutes.”

He hopes he gets better luck with the band’s new album, Them Vs. You Vs. Me, which hits stores on Tuesday (Mar. 6).

The new album features the standard mix of guitar, bass and drums along with violin, banjo and xylophones.

Anderson says the album sounds best “on headphones while walking around an unfamiliar city.” That’s something he’ll be doing a lot of since Finger Eleven will be promoting the album by doing a U.S. tour with Evanescence starting March 16.
