The trio, from Göteborg (Gothenburg) on the west coast of Sweden, was formed in 2001. Their first release was a self-titled EP in 2003. The band name is from drum company Fibes Drums, of which the band had a beloved drumset in its early career.[1]

In May 2004, their first album, Still Fresh, was released. In August 2006, they released a second album, Emotional. In autumn 2009, the band released the album 1987, on which they collaborated with Gary Kemp, Pontus Winnberg, Petter Winberg and Oskar Linnros. The album also contains duets with Björn Skifs and Kim Wilde. The album won "Pop Album of the Year" at the 2010 Grammis Awards.
