The Raveonettes Biography

Comprising of vocalist + bassist Sharin Foo and guitarist + vocalist Sune Rose Wagner, the Alternative-Rock act The Raveonettes formed up in Copenhagen, DENMARK, in the late '90s.

In the summer of 2002, the duo released its inaugural mini-album, "Whip It On", which was named Best Rock Album of the Year at the Danish Music Awards and later they landed the #19 spot on the U.S. Top Independent chart.

Relocating to New York City and working with Blondie producer Richard Gottehrer, they planned to release their first full-length disc called "Chain Gang Of Love"; the album was issued by Columbia Records in September 2003 debuting at #2 on the Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart and at #123 on The Billboard 200. In Europe the main single, "That Great Love Sound", hit the top 40 in U.K. and "Heartbreak Stroll" became a top 3 smash in their native Denmark.

The Raveonettes returned in May 2005 with its second album, "Pretty In Black", the 13-song set found Sharin Foo leaving her bass duties behind and yielding them to new member Anders Christensen. The lead single, "Love In A Trashcan" was a worldwide hit reaching #26 in U.K. and peaking at #8 on the U.S. Dance Music/Club Play Singles chart. The album itself would hit #3 in Denmark but failed to rise above #152 on the American Billboard 200 chart.

In November 2007 The Raveonettes, dropped from Columbia, released their next album "Lust Lust Lust", through Vice Records. Although first single, the surf-guitar tune "Dead Sound", missed the charts completely, the CD was their U.S. highest-charting album to date, debuting at #108 on The Billboard 200.

The Danish duo fourth album, "In And Out Of Control", followed in October 2009, making a strong debut in their home country and spent two weeks in the lower half of The Billboard Top 200 chart, but the disc failed to yield any major hit singles.

The Raveonettes issued their next album, entitled "Raven In The Grave", in April 2011; preceding the release, was the single "Recharge And Revolt".

"Observator", followed in September 2012.
