The demo also spawned one radio single, Falling Behind. In 2008, the band received two awards, both for Best Newcomer, on “Swedish Pop Awards” and “Bandit Rock Awards”

Their first single “Losing You” was released 6 March, 2009 at their MySpace page. The song gained attention to the band by being background music to Expedition Robinson 2009.

    Just found out the original clean vocalist is going to do vocals again. Can't fucking wait. Prefer the cleans on the first album anyways.

    I love this band but nothing beats the first album. It was way more unique and less poppy. Love all their stuff though.

    Был сегодня на их концерте в клубе RE:PUBLIC в Минске, Беларусь. Понравилось, мошились немного. Состав, конечно, изменился. На вокале Понтус, Кристофер Андерсон на гроулинге. Чуваки какие-то прикольные у них на разогреве были... Новые песни Понтус пел с листка)) Не выучил еще наверное. Рубашки стоили по 200 000, диски по 150 000 бел. руб. С удовольствием схожу еще раз.

    Honestly, with no offence intended at Jimmie -- I like Stoffe a lot more. I wish he had been there since the beginning.

    @Borannditt: Why? Stoffe is a perfectly good screamer.

    Well, i hope Pontus can keep the level of this band, but i think they must search for another screamer

    Not a great loss. I mean, he can't sing on the stage, just in the studio. (Autotune <3) Studio singer, that's all. Make Pontus as main vocalist - He's a great composer, and he has a great voice. Unfortunately, we do not hear too often. Go Pontus!

    Holy shit, Zando left? Maybe they can get someone better this time around. Someone who will also push to make the band better, with better lyrics and with more than just chug-guitars. :D
