The band was formed in Fredrikstad by Pål-Magnus Rybom in 1998. They signed with the American record label ADD, released one album and 3 singles, attended over 20 compilation releases, had a song on the videogame “Dance-Dance Revolution”, won the Norwegian synth championship, and joined Apoptygma Berzerk on a 3-month European tour, before splitting up in 2002.
The band has since reunited, and are back in the studio working on new material. Here’s already a snippet of “Walk My Mind”:
A releaseparty will be held in Fredrikstad (Norway) on May 14th.
