Blindside

The title given to this article is incorrect due to technical limitations. The correct title is blindside.

blindside is a hardcore band from Stockholm, Sweden. They formed in 1994 as "Underfree" and kept that name for two years before releasing their debut EP in 1996. All members are Christian, and it is evident in their lyrics ("I thought about Your love"; "I caught a glimpse of Your eye"), among countless other examples.

In 1997, Solid State Records got a hold of the EP, and signed blindside to a record deal. The first album, which was self-titled, was released to American audiences. In 1998, Tooth & Nail Records issued a new EP, titled Empty Box.

In 2000, A Thought Crushed My Mind was released. It was their final album for Solid State, after lackluster sales of the two albums. P.O.D. soon started endorsing blindside (actually, they were doing so since 1998) and signed them to Elektra Records under the imprint, 3 Points.

2002 saw the release of blindside's next album, Silence. It generated minor hits in "Sleepwalking", "Pitiful", and "Caught a Glimpse". In 2003 they toured with Hoobastank in support of the album.

Then in 2004, About a Burning Fire was released. It has generated a minor hit in All of Us. In late 2004, it was announced that blindside were leaving Elektra Records per the band's request.

In 2003, the Warner Music Group was sold to private investors, and employees lost jobs as a result. Therefore, the label couldn't support them anymore. Thankfully the Blindside Union and P.O.D. Warriors are doing more than enough to help out. blindside sold out five of the shows they headlined this Summer (2004).

However, the headlining tour was marred by a couple of incidents. First, their tour bus crashed, and was in disrepair, so they were forced to rent a van. Second, their last show in Bartlesville, OK had to be cancelled. They went in to a restaurant after their show in Dallas, TX, and when they came out, they found every thing in their rental van stolen, including their passports and whatever money they had.

First, their tour bus crashed, and was in disrepair, so they were forced to rent a van. Second, their last show in Bartlesville, OK had to be cancelled. They went in to a restaurant after their show in Dallas, TX, and when they came out, they found every thing in their rental van stolen, including their passports and whatever money they had. In 2004, he did a very popular "last night of summer" concert at BT Tower (named for British Telecom, not Transeau). However, the headlining tour was marred by a couple of incidents. Also of note, unlike many artists working in electronica, Transeau frequently performs his music live on-stage. blindside sold out five of the shows they headlined this Summer (2004). In recent years he has also moved into film scoring including Go (1999), Under Suspicion (2000), Driven (2001), The Fast and the Furious (2001), and Monster (2003). Warriors are doing more than enough to help out. He also provided vocals on the DJ TiŽsto single "Love Comes Again".

Thankfully the Blindside Union and P.O.D. 2003 saw the release of Emotional Technology featuring more vocal tracks than usual, including six with vocals by Transeau. Therefore, the label couldn't support them anymore. BT's 1999 album Movement in Still Life continued his experimentation outside of the trance genre he helped to define, though an interesting dichotomy emerged between his more adventurous work and the more structured, commercially viable tracks. In 2003, the Warner Music Group was sold to private investors, and employees lost jobs as a result. While Ima was comprised solely of the "progressive" sound, 1997's ESCM was more experimental (although it still produced several big records for the electronic dance music scene). In late 2004, it was announced that blindside were leaving Elektra Records per the band's request. However, unlike so many artists of the trance genre, BT has lost neither his momentum nor his edge.

It has generated a minor hit in All of Us. Instantly popular, BT's 1996 album Ima helped shape the future of the burgeoning progressive house scene as it merged with, and later came to define, the trance music style. Then in 2004, About a Burning Fire was released. Transeau's music was not very well received in the United States during the early 1990s, and he moved temporarily to Europe where his music was discovered by Sasha, a British DJ who introduced BT's music into the club circuit. In 2003 they toured with Hoobastank in support of the album. Born in Maryland, and classically trained from the age of thirteen, he attended Berklee School of Music in Boston for one year before dropping out and moving to Los Angeles, then back to Washington, DC. It generated minor hits in "Sleepwalking", "Pitiful", and "Caught a Glimpse". Brian Transeau (born October 4, 1971) is a musician who records under the stage name BT.
