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.
