AIRBAG - "Greatest Show on Earth"
After having played in different projects together, Airbag was formed in 2004 by five class mates from Oslo, Norway. The band recorded their first EP, Come On In, the same year, followed by Sounds That I Hear (2006) and Safetree (2008). Although recorded for promotional use, the EPs were offered for free on the band's website and got over 230.000 downloads within just a few months. The networking payed off and Airbag signed with Norwegian label Karisma Records in early 2009. Airbag's two hugely successful album releases, Identity (2009) and All Right Removed (2011), has gained the band a solid following and reputation among both fans and the press. Airbag has also become a solid live-act playing at several major festivals and as support and in double-bills with bands like Marillion, Anathema, Pineapple Thief, Riverside, RPWL and Gazpacho.
