King of Convenience



Kings of Convenience are two Norwegian guys from Bergen, Erlend Øye (on the right) and Eirik Glambæk Bøe, both born in 1975 (Erlend November 21 and Eirik October 25). They met at school and at 16 yo started playing together. With two other friends they formed a rock band called Skog (forest in Norwegian), that released an EP before splitting up. Then, after releasing three EPs as Kings of Convenience with the Norwegian label Éllet and a self-titled album for the American Kindercore, they signed for the French label Source.

They rearranged some old material and added some new for their acclaimed 'Quiet is the New Loud'. They also released 'Versus', a compilation of remakes, remixes and collaborations. The new album is called 'Riot on an Empty Street' and then 'Declaration of Dependance' it's now available everywhere.
