Biography

London, United Kingdom (2001 – present)

Fiction Plane is a rock band from England. Originally formed in London under the name Santa’s Boyfriend in 2001, Fiction Plane is currently comprised of lead vocalist, guitar and bass player Joe Sumner, guitarist Seton Daunt and American drummer Pete Wilhoit.

Fiction Plane’s first major label release, Everything Will Never Be OK, with MCA Records, was released in the US in March 2003 with the single “Hate”. Shortly after the album’s release, Bloomington, IN drummer Pete Wilhoit joined the band.

In spite of positive critical acclaim for the group, including being named a ‘Breaker’ Artist by AOL Music in March of 2003, MCA folded and the band moved over to Geffen records. In 2005 the band released a 4-song EP entitled Bitter Forces and Lame Race Horses on the Geffen imprint label Everybody’s Records.

In 2006, Fiction Plane made a brief move to Interscope Records and parted ways with founding member and bass/keyboard player Dan Brown[. Joe Sumner took over on bass and the band started working on a new album, Left Side of the Brain, which was released on Bieler Bros. Records on May 22, 2007. Behind the success of the singles “Two Sisters” (a popular single in France, Belgium and Holland) and “Death Machine” the album rose all the way to #46 on the Billboard Heatseeker Album Chart.
On January 23, 2008, Left Side of the Brain was released in Japan through Sideout Records with two bonus tracks: “Drink (acoustic)” and “Put On Your Shoes.”
