Pendulum

Biography

Pendulum is a British and Australian band that combine Drum 'n' Bass with rock and electronica. Though they are originally from Perth, the band relocated to the UK.

Pendulum: Music History

Pendulum formed in Perth, Western Australia and released their first single 'Vault' in 2003. Their debut album, Hold Your Colour was released in 2005. The album was hugely popular in both Australia and the UK and featured the singles 'Slam', 'Out Here' and 'Blood Sugar'. The album features collaborations with Fats & TC and The Freestylers.

Pendulum's second album, In Silico was released in May 2008, following a high profile performance at Radio 1 Big Weekend concert in Maidstone, Kent. In Silico featured 'Propane Nightmares', their most successful release to date, having reached number nine in the UK singles charts. That year also saw Pendulum playing a number of large festivals, including the Leeds & Reading Festival, Creamfields, T in the Park and Download Festival. In December 2008, they filmed their performances at London's Brixton Academy. The resulting footage was released as a live DVD, released in June 2009.

2009 also saw Pendulum perform at Glastonbury (where they performed their version of Calvin Harris' 'I'm Not Alone'), Download and the Isle of Wight Festival. They also played at that year's Somerset House shows, with Guardian writer Caroline Sullivan calling them the "odd ones out" on the line-up. Their crossover sound appeals to a wide range of music fans, making them a popular festival choice. Though their earlier material, released through independent labels such as Uprising Records and Renegade Hardware was darker and more melodic, similar to Adam F and DJ Fresh, their recent releases on Warner Bros. have been a big departure and have a more dance-led sound.

Pendulum have remixed a number of tracks by other artists, most notably the track 'Voodoo People' by The Prodigy. They also collaborated with The Freestylers on 'Painkiller'.

In June 2009, Pendulum performed at a secret gig at Cargo, London, to raise money for the charity Crisis. Also playing at the gig were Zane Lowe, Chase and Status and The Bays.
