Biography

There are more than one artist named Departure on last.fm:

1) A poprock band from Trondheim, Norway. The band consists of Erlend Angelsen on guitar, Trond Lindset on vocals, Morten Hagen on bass, Adam Storli on guitar/synth, and Fredrik Jenssen on drums. Departure’s music is influenced by such bands as Jimmy Eat World, The Killers, and Your Vegas. The song “Half / Split” was released digitally in October 2010, and was immediately put into heavy rotation on most of the Norwegian radio channels. The second single “Gravity” was put into radio rotation in March 2011. Their first album is expected in the last half of 2012.

2) 2006: Starting in October 2006, Thomas and Tom wanted to create a new brand of music, entangling multiple styles into one. In December 2006 they entered the studio to record a 3-track promo, with the help of Kevin (vocalist of Toxocara/Erebus) on vocals and JB (bass player of Seizure) on bass guitar and as engineer/producer. After the recording-sessions they started looking for a line-up to bring their music to the stage. That line up was found when Sven (bass guitar), and Mathieu (guitars, bass player in Carnal Leftovers) joined the band. Shortly after this a vocalist was found in Olivier (Ex- Obliterator, ex- Judgement Day) and the lineup was completed.

After a short time of rehearsing Thomas didn’t feel quite right about the band and decided to leave. Fortunately a new drummer was found very quickly and Clemens ( Aggro, ex-Bodyrot) decided to join Departure. Now with a complete lineup the feeling was right and some months of intense rehearsing and writing followed.
