Razorlight

Razorlight were formed in London in 2002 with Johnny Borrell, Bjorn Agnen, Carl Dalemo and Christian Smith-Pancorvo. At first the group were over-shadowed by the success of their fellow East Londoners The Libertines, but shot to fame shortly after the release of their debut album 'Up All Night' which spawned several top 20 hits including 'Somewhere Else', 'Rip It Up', 'Vice' and their breakthrough hit 'Golden Touch'. In September 2004, fonding member Christian Smith-Pancorvo quit the band due to stress issues.

Razorlight were formed in London in 2002 with Johnny Borrell, Bjorn Agnen, Carl Dalemo and Christian Smith-Pancorvo. At first the group were over-shadowed by the success of their fellow East Londoners The Libertines, but shot to fame shortly after the release of their debut album 'Up All Night' which spawned several top 20 hits including 'Somewhere Else', 'Rip It Up', 'Vice' and their breakthrough hit 'Golden Touch'. In September 2004, fonding member Christian Smith-Pancorvo quit the band due to stress issues.

The band's truimphant slot at Live8 catapulted them to international success and in the summer of 2006, the group released their critically acclaimed second album, simply titled 'Razorlight'. The record has gone platinum in the UK and spawned two top 3 singles ('In The Morning' & 'America'). In October 2006 the band played their first ever arena dates in the UK, selling out the world famous Wembley Arena.

In November 2008, Razorlight released their 3rd album. Titled 'Slipway Fires', it was preceded by lead single 'Wire To Wire' which reached #5 on the UK charts. « hide
