History

The four members of Kissaway Trail Søren, Thomas, Hasse and Rune originally recorded together under the name 'Isles', and did a self-released album called "We have decided not to die" in 2005 Since then, an additional guitarist, Daniel, while Thomas started to sing alongside Søren making the distinctive two lead-vocal sound that they have today Various tracks from this early period of the band's history can still be downloaded from Danish music websites The band’s musical existence very nearly ended when Søren lost his love for music after his father was killed under tragic circumstances However, he made his own decision to start performing and recording again, and Kissaway Trail started to create their debut album

Their material is released in Europe aside from Scandinavia and Japan by Bella Union, Etch n Sketch in Australia and New Zealand, and Playground Music in Scandinavia On their breakthrough album local producer Niels Høg helped them in the studio

The title of their song 61 relates to the number of days a band member had to wait to hear if their family member had a terminal illness The member involved is kept under wraps for very personal reasons; some fans believe it is Hasse, the drummer, because he has a tattoo of the number '61' on his chest

In the Autumn of 2007, Kissaway Trail acted as the main support for Editors on their UK and European tours, alongside Ra Ra Riot in the UK and The Boxer Rebellion in Europe

The band have cited influences to their music include The Beach Boys, Grandaddy, Daniel Johnston, Placebo and Sonic Youth, amongst others Their sound has also been compared to that of the Polyphonic Spree and Canadian band Arcade Fire
