The band was founded by guitarists Rick Rizzo and Janet Beveridge Bean. After moving to Chicago, Bean and Rizzo joined with guitarist Baird Figi and bassist Douglas McCombs, with Bean soon switching over to drums. Their first record, "Eleventh Dream Day" (1987), introduced the hallmarks of EDD's sound- Neil Young-inspired electric guitar workouts mixed with punk energy.

The band's full-length follow-up, "Prairie School Freakout" (1988), won critical praise and the attention of major labels; the band soon signed with Atlantic Records. Followups "Beet" (1989) and "Lived To Tell" (1991) won more rave reviews but didn't sell many copies; Figi left during the "Lived To Tell" tour and was replaced by Matthew "Wink" O'Bannon.

The band made a stab for commercial success with 1993's "El Moodio," but the effort was unsuccessful and Eleventh Dream Day was dropped from Atlantic's roster. O'Bannon left after recording 1994's "Ursa Major" and the band ceased to be a full-time entity; Rizzo went back to college to earn a degree in education, while Bean and McCombs concentrated on their other musical projects, Freakwater and Tortoise respectively.

Eleventh Dream Day has since recorded new albums every few years, starting with 1997's "Eighth." Recent albums have balanced the band's Young-influenced approach with an interest in ambient sound, likely influenced by McCombs's work with Tortoise. EDD released "Stalled Parade" in 2000, playing a handful of shows after the album's release with Mark Greenberg of (the Coctails) assisting on keyboards and other instruments. A new album, Zeroes and Ones, was released on April 25, 2006 on Thrill Jockey Records.

Track "Exit Right" can be found on "URSA MAJOR" lp (1994, Atavistic)
