Twin Atlantic formed in March 2007. All members were previously in other bands: Sam in Arca Felix, Ross in LongStoryShort, Barry in Think:Fire and Craig in In Ernest.
During 2007 they built up a strong reputation both locally and nationally with tour support slots with Circa Survive and mewithoutyou before recording their debut EP ´A Guidance From Colour´ at Long Wave Studio in Cardiff with producer Romesh Dodangoda (Funeral For A Friend, Kids In Glass Houses, The Blackout). This culminated in the release of their debut EP on 14 Januray 2008 and their first single, Audience & Audio, on 24 December 2007.
Building on support from Kerrang, the band´s profile was boosted enough for them to land support slots with Biffy Clyro and they were personally chosen by Jimmy Chamberlin to support Smashing Pumpkins at Glasgow´s SECC in early February. Over the following months, Twin Atlantic also supported American acts The Matches, Finch and Say Anything on their respective UK tours as well as You Me At Six, Funeral for a Friend, Thrice and Lostprophets.
In the summer of 2008 Twin Atlantic played many festivals in Scotland, including T in the Park, Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, RockNess, Live At Loch Lomond and Connect Music Festival.
The band signed a single deal with King Tuts Recordings, and ´What Is Light? Where Is Laughter?´ was released on 29 September 2008. They also completed a joint headline tour of Scotland with The Xcerts and their first set of solo headline dates across the UK.
The Glasgow four piece were chosen as the main support for The Subways on their European tour throughout October and November 2008.
The band recently finished a UK headline tour which concluded with a sold out gig at the Classic Grand in Glasgow on the 6th December 2008.
On the 18th February the band released a home-demo version of Caribbean War Syndrome on their Myspace.
