Razorlight Concert tickets and Tours Razorlight Biography:

Razorlight are an Anglo-Swedish band formed in England the summer of 2002 around 22 year old singer/writer Johnny Borrell. Their sound is often described as post punk-rock music. Their debut album, Up All Night, was released on June 28, 2004, reaching number 3 in the UK album charts on 4 July.[1] The critical reception was generally good, receiving good reviews from NME, Q magazine and Billboard, although they were also accused of lack of imagination and unoriginality for allegedly borrowing ideas from other influential bands, notably The Strokes. They appear to polarize opinion. NME wrote that the album: "bristles with passion, energy and, most importantly, amazing songs", while they were described elsewhere as "nearly everything wrong with rock and roll today". Their fans, though, embrace the music for its simple melodies and multi-layered, easy-going compositions.

Frontman Johnny Borrell caused some controversy and surprise when he likened himself to folk legend Bob Dylan, quipping "If Dylan's making the chips then I'm drinking the champagne". This led to suggestions of self-promotion. This statement was taken out of context however as Borrell was comparing his and Dylan's first albums, not their overall career. The band became very popular on the London music scene when they arrived earlier in the year. Large demand caused the band to play extra shows, including a 7,000+ capacity gig at Alexandra Palace. The album was heavily marketed in the UK. Up All Night is now recognized as one of the pre-eminent albums of 2004.

On the band's 2004 release, Up All Night, Johnny Borrell recorded his phone number into the track called "Vice". The number is (supposedly) 07761 010233.

Razorlight have been frequently compared to the aforementioned bands, sometimes unfavourably as impostors, and at other times as part of the growing 'back to basics' rock scene. The band have also been repeatedly accused of stealing ideas from British Sea Power. Razorlight have placed plastic trees on the stage, and British Sea Power frequently adorn the stage with foliage. Borrell's clothing also repeatedly bears a striking resemblance to that of British Sea Power frontman Yan.

Up All Night was re-issued in April 2005, including previously unreleased single "Somewhere Else", which peaked at Number 2. It was their biggest hit single to date.

In July 2005, the band performed at Hyde Park, London, as part of the Live 8 series of concerts. However, the band came under fire for not donating their extra revenue to charity. Razorlight claim that due to their "fledgling status", they're unable to make such a commitment.

They also appear as themselves in series 2 of The Mighty Boosh, in the episode 'The Priest and The Beast'.

Razorlight supported Oasis (band) in December 2005, at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium. The band are also scheduled to support Richard Ashcroft in his homecomeing gig at the Lancashire County Cricket Club on June 17, 2006.

On April 3rd 2006, they streamed a new song from their new album on their website, from around 1800 BST to 1900 BST. According to NME.COM, it was called "Pop Song 2006". According to an interview with Planet Sound, this was only a working title and was a tribute to R.E.M's Pop Song '89. The band planned on calling it "Small Town Heroes", but never told the production people.

The band appeared in front of Brighton's West Pier on the 12th July 2006 in a free concert as part of a Vodafone TBA event to be broadbast on channel 4. Razorlight's eponymous second album is due to be released on July 17th 2006. It is preceded by single 'In The Morning' on July 3rd.The Album was welcomed with critical acclaim, getting strong reviews. Q magazine lavished praise on the album stating "There are many things to cherish about this record... its length, sound, simplicity, sheer brass balls and its songs... And if making the best guitar album since 'Definitely Maybe' is what's required, then job done. 5/5", whilst NME gave it 8/10 and The Times, The Independant & Guardian all gave the album 4/5. Sparking a strong return for the band.
