Biography

The Androids may refer to:

1. A rock band from Australia, fronted by guitarist Tim Henwood (originally from The Superjesus) with Matt Tomlinson, Sam Grayson, and Marty Grech. Remembered mostly for their song ‘Do It With Madonna’, released in 2002, the band experienced moderate success with their self-titled debut album in Australia and the UK. Their second single, ‘Here She Comes’, released in 2003, also gained attention in the US after featuring on the soundtrack for the third film in the popular ‘American Pie’ franchise, ‘American Wedding.’

After their third single, ‘Brand New Life’, failed to match the success of the first two, The Androids went on hiatus while Henwood joined the electro-pop band Rogue Traders as lead guitarist. Henwood toured extensively with the band and also helped write material for their third album, ‘Better In The Dark’.

In 2006, Henwood revealed he had been writing new songs for The Androids, and in 2007, announced he would be leaving the Rogue Traders to focus on their comeback. In May, the band released ‘Whole Lotta Love’ as the first single off their sophomore album, which was a moderate success. The band revealed the album would be titled ‘Outta Ya Mind’ and in April they toured nationally with P!nk during the Australian leg of her ‘I’m Not Dead’ tour.

A second single, rumored to be ‘2 Cool For School’, was slated for release but was ultimately shelved and the album also delayed, although there was no official word from the band as to why. Eventually the album became available to purchase digitally and a physical release followed a few months later.
