- Me, Myself, and I
- Pendulum formed in Perth, Western Australia and released their first single, "Vault", in 2003. After several other singles they released their debut album, Hold Your Colour, in 2005. Second album, In Silico, was released in May 2008, the day after the band had played at Radio 1's Big Weekend in Maidstone, Kent. The second single from the album, "Propane Nightmares", was their biggest hit to date, peaking at #9 in the UK Singles Chart.
Pendulum played at numerous music festivals in 2008, including the Reading and Leeds Festivals, T in the Park, Creamfields and the Download Festival. They also undertook their first tour of North America. At the end of the year the band filmed a live DVD on the 4th and 5th of December 2008, at the Brixton Academy, which was released in June 2009.
Pendulum Have already performed at Download Festival, Glastonbury Festival, Open'er Festival, Isle Of Wight Festival, Planet Festival, Rock Werchter, Pinkpop, Dance Island and Sonisphere in 2009 so far.
The Pendulum sound is typically heavy beats accompanied by low, buzzing basslines, overlaid with synthesized leads. When Pendulum started out as producers in Australia, their sound was considerably more drum and bass-influenced than the work they are known for today. Signature tunes such as "Vault", "Back to You", "Voyager" and "Toxic Shock", which were released on small labels such as Uprising Records, Renegade Hardware and Low Profile Records, have a darker, more melodic air to them which is substantially absent from their later productions, which are generally leaning towards a mainstream, dance-driven sound. Early work such as "Another Planet" however, seems to indicate an early affinity with a more global sound, similar to other Breakbeat Kaos artists such as DJ Fresh and Adam F.
The group has produced various remixes of other artists also; the most well-known being their remix of "Voodoo People", originally by The Prodigy. Pendulum have also been remixed themselves. In 2006, their collaboration with the Freestylers - "Painkiller" - was remixed by NOISIA and released on Against the Grain Records.
