The band that has been touring around the world for nearly three decades now is still alive an kicking more than ever. Their albums "Echo Mountain", "Cocoon Crash" "Paradise in Me" "The Phantom Cowboy", reached the Top 10 several times.
Their album "The Phantom Cowboy" reached gold and platinum status and first place in Belgium. It was founded in 1992 by the brothers Sam (formerly Sarah) and Gert Bettens, the band's singers. The big break came in 1995 with the release of "Not An Addict", which became their biggest hit and brought them to international success.
The song came in 5th on the Billboard Parade. More than two decades have passed since it came out and it is still played on major radio stations around the world. A year after the song was released, singer Alannis saw the band perform at a festival in Europe and decided to add them to her tour as an opening show. During this time Alannis was at the peak of her success with her first album. The song "Everything for Free" released in 1998 is one of the band's biggest radio and MTV hits. It came in 28th place on the Billboard Parade and was a big hit in Europe and Israel.
The band's songs appeared on soundtracks of several films and series. The song "Virgin State of Mind" was played in the popular series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", the song "All of This Past" appeared in the 2003 film "Dark's War"and the song "Someone to say hi to"in the Zus & Zo movie.
In 2017 they released "25" - a collection album that includes all their big hits, and a remake of 'Not An Addict' featuring Skin from the Skunk Anansie band.
In 2018 they released a double live album from their performance at the legendary "Ancienne Belgique" concert hall in Brussels. These collections are added to the band's 7 studio albums.
Last May, band vocalist Sam Bettens formerly known as 'Sarah' announced that he was a transgender man and that he had started undergoing a transitioning process.
