Biography

There is more than one artist with this name:

1) 93 Million Miles From the Sun (also somewhere pronounced as 93MillionMilesFromTheSun) is a / three-piece band from Doncaster, United Kingdom.

2) a Swedish group fronted by Dennis Lyxzén from Refused and The (International) Noise Conspiracy and members of Refused and Saidiwas that “vow(ed) to never perform the same song twice.”

93 Million Miles From The Sun As stereotypical visions of people and places go, the good folks of Doncaster aren’t exactly at the top of the list when thoughts turn to embracing new, experimental music. Indeed, having spent the occasional stag night in DN1 and its dens of iniquity also known as night clubs, the nearest anyone could expect to come to encountering new music would be the “Indie half hour” in Seventh Heaven, where Oasis, The Enemy and Ocean Colour Scene are the so-called alternative. Thank heavens for small mercies then, as 93 Million Miles From The Sun not only manage to dampen stereotypes, but their self-produced, self-titled debut long player could (whisper it) just be one of 2009’s most exquisite offerings on the album front. Combining layered, textured guitars over an array of effects and choral vocals, 93 Million Miles From The Sun is one of those records that, while evoking memories of the likes of Slowdive in their heyday or even a more sonically enhanced Maps, stands tall and proud in its own right due to the dazzling range of variation across its thirteen tracks.

    Не согласен. Мне кажется эта песня не имеет никакого отношения к данной группе. Дело в том что название группы и песня 30 seconds to mars обозначает приблизительное расстояние планеты Земля от Солнца.

    I think maybe it has something linked with the song 93 Million Miles by 30 second to mars

    I'm wondering why some of their songs are emo and some are shoegaze or they're 2 bands that use the same names? 'one day' is fucking emo shit but 'everything i need' and 'darke star' are really nice noise rock.
