“Eleventh Dream Day have forged one of the most durable sounds to emerge from the indie-rock underground. Balancing ragged guitars against fragile melodies and sweet vocal harmonies, the Chicago group’s albums perfectly encapsulated the promise - both artistic and commercial - of post-punk alternative rock.” - Rolling Stone

On ‘Works For Tomorrow’ core Eleventh Dream Day members Rick Rizzo, Janet Beveridge Bean, Mark Greenberg, and Douglas McCombs are joined by James Elkington (Brokeback, Tweedy), marking the first time the band have recorded with a second guitarist since 1994. Elkington’s addition has unleashed the band’s strengths. The ferocious and visceral interplay between Rizzo and Elkington charge the band with a joyous exuberance that sweeps the listener in for the 43 minutes of ‘Works For Tomorrow’.

The album also features performances by long time friend Martin Wenk (Calexico) and Rich Parenti on horns.

Eleventh Dream Day are known for their raw, inexhaustible live performances. They honed the songs on ‘Works For Tomorrow’ during an extended residency at Chicago’s legendary club venue The Hideout and the packed, sweaty energy of those shows is unmistakable on this new recording. Drummer and sometime lead vocalist Janet Beveridge Bean breaks free as never before with her vocals igniting the songs with an animalistic urgency as she furiously propels the songs with pure command from behind the kit.

Eleventh Dream Day’s fiery performances and inventive arrangements make for the most complex and compelling record of their career. ‘Works For Tomorrow’ finds the band fixed on the road ahead, barrelling toward the horizon with the radio turned way, way up.

‘Works For Tomorrow’ was recorded and mixed by Mark Greenberg at the Loft (Wilco’s studio) and Mayfair Recordings.
