Eleventyseven was an American Christian punk band from Greenville, South Carolina which was formed in 2002. They chose the name "Eleventyseven" because "it's the one that looked cool the next morning". The band was originally signed to Flicker Records and released two albums with the label that charted on Christian music charts. After an independent streak, the band signed on to Sony Japan before returning to an independent status a year later. In their late years, they continued to tour, self produce and release music independently until disbanding in September of 2014.
Group members Matt Langston and Caleb Satterfield first played together in a church group from Greenville, South Carolina. After adding drummer Johnathan Stephens, the band began by playing shows in their hometown when they were in high school. They self-released a full-length album and several EPs, which caught the attention of Flicker Records, a Sony/BMG subsidiary distributed through Provident Label Group.
Their major-label debut, And The Land Of Fake Believe, was released on May 16, 2006 to mixed reviews. Following the release of the album, the group appeared at ShoutFest '06, gained exposure on MTVU and had success at Christian rock radio with the single "MySpace"; their profile on said website became very popular as a result. Their single "More Than A Revolution" reached the Top 5 in ChristianRock.Net's weekly Top 30, and No. 28 in their annual Top 100, as well as topping the Radio & Records Christian Rock charts.
After an appearance on The Logan Show on November 25, 2006, the group announced plans to tour the US in the early months of 2007. Galactic Conquest, their second album under Flicker, was released on September 4, 2007. The album peaked at No. 40 on Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart. The song "Love In Your Arms" was released as the band's first single for the record, making it as high as the No. 6 spot in ChristianRock.Net's weekly Top 30. The second song "It's Beautiful" also hit the Top 15, charting at No. 13 on the October 6, 2007 R&R chart. In 2009, the band independently released their third album, Adventures In Eville.
In mid-2010, bassist Caleb Satterfield decided to leave the band to focus on his marriage. He was replaced by Davey Davenport, who had filled in as lead guitar for a time in 2009 after lead singer Matt Langston had a thumb crushing accident.
Eleventyseven released their first EP, entitled Quota, on April 1, 2011, followed by the album Sugarfist, their fourth studio album, on October 26, 2011 under Sony Japan. The album contained five out of the six tracks from the Quota EP plus six new original tracks. The Japanese edition of Sugarfist contained all six songs from Quota EP plus three more bonus tracks as well, making it in its entirety, a sixteen-track album.
In mid-2012, the band segued from their normal sound and composed a folk EP, Attack Of The Mountain Medley. The release dealt with subjects from Morminism to a humorous view of bumpkin trailer parks. Later that year, they returned to their usual synth-punk sound with the Christmas EP, Regifted, which was released November 2012.
