Biography

There are multiple bands with the name Colt - British band, punk/rock. band from Germany, hard rock band from Latvia.

1. Colt (who changed their name from Living With Eating Disorders in 2005) are a British band, based in London, who combine electronics with more standard components of rock music to create songs that often feature calm, ethereal sections (which lead to frequent comparisons with bands like Portishead), juxtaposed with almost violent outbursts of desperation and chaos.

UK band COLT began as writing duo Living With Eating Disorders; Andrea and Jared met in a west London recording studio and on the strength of demos attracted the interest of legendary producer John Fryer.

In August 2004 they released their debut EP ‘White Like Snow’ and the end of 2004 saw the band support ‘Psychic TV’ and ‘Whitehouse’, but increasing pressure forced the band to withdraw from the public eye and on the 16th March 2005 LWED performed their last gig - a multi media gallery project ‘parliament of monsters’, with live sets, projections and sculptures.

Keen to move beyond the controversy surrounding the name, the band returned in October 2005 as COLT, with their debut album ‘These Things Can’t Hurt You Now, So Throw Them In The Fire’ to critical acclaim from the independent worldwide press.

In May 2008, After a change in the live line-up and a change of label, COLT released the new EP “You hold on to what’s not real”, featuring four new tracks, and remixes by artists including Arlen Figgis and William Bennett, on their own label Obvious Records along with the video for ‘Black Rabbits’.

    I recently came back to my "These Things..." CD and it's just incredible. Full of emotion and intensity. Might I mention, it's also expertly produced.
