The Soundtrack of Our Lives Call It Quits
After 17 years together, Swedish indie psych-pop band the Soundtrack of our Lives are breaking up. The band will call it a day following their concert at London's Heaven club on Sept. 13.
"My idea when we started this band was that we were gonna peak around 2012. Which suddenly is pretty soon!" singer Ebbot Lundberg told NME.
Founded in 1995 in Gothenberg, the Soundtrack of our Lives recorded six albums, including this year's 'Throw It to the Universe,' which was released in June and billed as their final album. They achieved a great deal of press for 'Sister Surround' from 2002's 'Behind the Music.' They were nominated for a Grammy for Best Alternative Album the next year, but were never able to build upon the momentum in subsequent releases.
Despite topping the chart twice in their native Sweden, their only American chart appearance was in 2004 for 'Origin, Vol. 1,' which reached No. 179 on the Billboard 200.
