The British band Razorlight, one of the main indie rock guitar bands from the first decade of 21st century, are playing in the Czech Republic for the first time. On 7th February they are going to introduce us to their new album Olympus Sleeping that has been released on 26th October.
Razorlight were founded in East London in the summer of 2002, the singer Johnny Borrell being the main guy. They have sold over four million records so far, played in sold-out arenas and big festivals. Their debut album Up All Night (2004) captured the amazing energy of the squat parties and London clubs of the time, and went to n.3 in the UK album charts. The song Somewhere Else went to n.2 of the singles chart. In 2005 they received the NME award for the Best New Band.
Their second album called Razorlight (2006) went straight to n.1 in the UK. The single In The Morning went to n.3, the song America went to the very top. In 2007 they received two nominations for BRIT Awards and another two for NME Awards. They played in London O2 Arena and opened big festivals for The Killers. The main single Wire To Wire from the third album Slipway Fires went to n.5 in the UK and was also successful in other European countries. In 2010 the band started working on their fifth album as well as opening concerts for U2. However, due to some doubts about its qualities, the album was never released.
In the beginning of 2017 the band woke up from their sleep when Johnny began to play and write songs with the guitarist David Ellis, joined by the drummer Martin Chambers from The Pretenders. That resulted in the album Olympus Sleeping.
