Razorlight Biography

This Alternative-Rock band came together in London, ENGLAND, in the Summer of 2002, when lead vocalist+guitarist Johnny Borrell met Swedish guitarist Björn Ågren; the pair hooked-up with bass player Carl Dalemo from Lidköping Sweden and Peruvian drummer Christian Smith-Pancorvo.

In autumn of that same year the quartet recorded their first demo and began to do extensive road work in and around London, which ultimately led to a recording contract with Vertigo Records. But the strain began to show on drummer Smith-Pancorvo who announced he was leaving for health reasons in May 2004; Andy Burrows was brought in as a replacement shortly before the release of the band's debut album, "Up All Night". The first single, "Golden Touch", hit #12 on the U.K. National Pop chart propelling the full-length CD into the top 3 of the Official U.K. Albums chart; the record yielded two more top 20 hit singles in "Vice" and "Rip It Up".
In spring 2005 Razorlight released a new single, "Somewhere Else", which was taken from the special tour edition of their million selling debut album; the track rose to #2 on the British Top 40 chart.

Razorlight's eponymously titled sophomore release appeared in July 2006; the album shot to #1 in the U.K. while the first single, "In The Morning", hit the top 3; the follow-up single, "America", soared to the top of the British National chart.

The band's third outing, "Slipway Fires", arrived in November 2008.
