A Little About Logan

Last week we told you about our trip to see the Scottish rock band Logan, so today we'd like share a little band history:

Formed in 2003, Logan are a five piece hard rock band from Glasgow, Scotland.

Their self-funded, debut album First Leaf Fallen was released in 2003 and was followed with Welcome to The Wasteland a year later, building an impressive U.K. fan base and selling over 8,000 copies.

In 2005 they secured high profile support slots with Alter Bridge, which helped them to become one of the most talked about independent bands in the U.K. In June 2006, they released their first single When I Get Down which debuted at No. 12 on the Official U.K. Rock Chart and proceeded to stay in the chart for seven weeks — a feat never before achieved by an unsigned band.

September 2006 saw the release of their third album Cruel Little World and their second single Hallowed Ground followed, again breaking into the U.K. Rock Chart Top Twenty.

2007 saw the band win awards at The U.K. Glasswerks Awards for New Music and a nomination as ones to watch in 2008 by the UK's leading rock magazine Classic Rock and an inclusion on the accompanying cover mount cd.

2008 was a great year for Logan. Airplay of the single "Lost & Found" won the band a support slot with Bon Jovi at Hampden Park in front of 4,000 and the subsequent 8-date UK headline tour pushed sales of Cruel Little World to sell-out status. The band headed to L.A. in October to record two videos and play a new pressing of Cruel Little World with three additional tracks and new packaging was released to coincide with a 24-date European tour in support of Alter Bridge, which was a great success. The tour saw the band conquer new audiences in 11 countries and set them up nice for 2009.
