2008 – present (11 years)
The first pieces of the W.T.B puzzle were put in place when Christoffer Andersson (former growler of By Night and DØDZ) decided to step away from the microphone and concentrate on the guitar.
He teamed up with childhood buddies Kristoffer Karlsson (drums), Per Bengtsson (bass) and Daniel Jenssen (guitar).
A couple of songs were recorded but the lack of a singer was in dire need to be adjusted.
They had a couple of tryouts, but no one really matched as their lead singer.
Thanks to Mikael M (a local studio technician and also a friend of the band) they got in contact with Kristoffer Bäcklund (former drummer of Sonic Syndicate) and the audition was a success.
Now the pieces seemed to fall into place, but unfortunately Daniel had to go separate ways from the band.
They were once again down to a four piece orchestra and began to write new songs.
The first three songs were caught on a shitty demo tape which reached guitarist Fredrik Strandquist, who liked what he heard and joined forces.
This was in April 2008.
A fourth song was written and the collaboration was a smash.
The band was complete.
Just a week later W.T.B made their live debut, and soon after that the recording of “Forever starts tomorrow” was a fact.
The EP, containing “As you”, “Far away from you”, “To be” and “This time”, was received with open arms by the crowds.
Releasing the songs on MySpace on the 12th of December they were played more than 10 000 times in less than a month.
A couple of months of live shows and music creativity passed and in the summer of 2009 a confident W.T.B entered the studio again.
Just as with the first EP the recordings took place at Old Pharmacy Studios in Ullared with Mikael M as technician,
and ones again it was four songs that were about to be recorded.
But during the process an acoustic version of the ballad “Don’t let go” took form, and this fifth track was recorded under the name of “Don’t let go (The Breakdown-remix)”.
An intro, which the band uses as an opener for their live shows, was also added.
The new EP was named “This you owe me” and reached the crowds in October.
As for the rest, well…
“You never know What Tomorrow Brings”
