Biography

Vancouver, Canada (2001 – present)

There are at least two artists/bands with the name Default.

1. A Canadian Rock Band.
2. A Producer in the UK.

1. Default is a Canadian band from Vancouver, British Columbia. They have released four albums to date.

Default were initially discovered by Chad Kroeger of Nickelback. Impressed by the band, Kroeger aided Default wherever possible by taking them on tours, co-writing songs, and producing material. Default have since progressively distanced themselves from Kroeger’s influence over the years.

Default’s hit single “Deny” was featured in the 2003 iteration of EA Sports’ NHL video game series which help them gain even further exposure. Having already amassed an adequate fan base and frequent radio airplay in their native Canada, they managed to gain popularity in the United States for their hit singles “Wasting My Time” and “Deny” from their first album The Fallout. Default’s first and second albums were produced with the help of Chad Kroeger, who would later reduce his involvement by only co-writing one song for their third album “One Thing Remains”. Despite the significant success of the singles from The Fallout, Their follow-up albums Elocation and One Thing Remains failed to gain the same amount of popularity and radio airplay in the United States as their debut. Elocation was mostly successful for their hit single “(Taking My) Life Away” which was played extensively on the radio and television in Canada.
