Dada Ante Portas, formerly known as Dada (Ante Portas), is an English-language Swiss rock band from Lucerne who broke through to mainstream success in 2004 with their third album, Seasons Change. Comprised of Pee Wirz (vocals, born Pirmin Wirz), Luc le Bo (guitar, vocals; born Luc Bachmann), Lukas Schaller (guitar), Mitch Prest (bass), and Thommy Lauper (drums), the band formed in 1997 and performed its first concert in October of that year. After approximately 100 successive live performances, Dada Ante Portas made their recording debut with Playin' Hooky (2001), followed by Bound for Nowhere (2002). The latter album proved significantly more popular than its predecessor, charting at number 15 on the Swiss albums chart relative to number 44 for the band's debut. Dada Ante Portas' third album proved their breakthrough, charting number three and spawning the Top 40 hit "She Cries for Someone Else." At this juncture, the band changed its name from Dada (Ante Portas) to simply Dada Ante Portas for its next album, Superbixen (2006), a Top Five hit. Also around this time, the bandmembers began to quarrel in the wake of their newfound fame; consequently, at the conclusion of the supporting tour for Superbixen, bassist Mitch Prest departed the band. Guitarist Lukas Schaller assumed bass duties during the recording of the band's next album, The Theory of Everything (2008). The album album became Dada Ante Portas' most successful to date, debuting at number two on the Swiss albums chart and spawning the Top 20 hit "Taking Your Love." ~ Jason Birchmeier
