Biography

Dead by April are a Swedish metalcore band whose debut single, "Losing You," was a chart-topping smash hit in 2009. Founded in 2007 in Gothenburg, Sweden, the band is comprised of Jimmie Strimell (vocals), Pontus Hjelm (guitar, vocals, programming), Johan Olsson (guitar, vocals), Marcus Wesslén (bass), and Alexander Svenningson (drums). Dead by April made their recording debut in 2007 with a self-titled ten-track demo that circulated on the Internet. A greatly expanded 19-track version of the demo was released in 2008, once again distributed primarily on the Internet. Upon signing a major-label deal with Universal Music, Dead by April made their commercial recording debut in 2009 with the single "Losing You." It steadily climbed up the Swedish singles chart, lodging itself at number one for two weeks in May, around the same time the band made its full-length album debut with Dead by April. The album reached number two on the charts and spawned the follow-up single "What Can I Say." In 2010, Hjelm left the group as a performer but stayed on as a songwriter, and was replaced by vocalist Zandro Santiago. The first release to feature his work was the early 2011 compilation Stronger, which featured heavier mixes of several songs as well as a Killing Joke cover. That spring, the band announced their second official album, Incomparable, was complete; it was released that September. ~ Jason Birchmeier
