Apartment 26 was a metal band from Leamington Spa, England. They played Ozzfest in 1999 and split up in 2004. They worked with Tchad Blake, at Real World Studios, on their self-financed Music For The Massive, having scrapped "Album 1.5" after two years of production. The result was a tighter band, and looser "live" sound, captured by Blake by making the band perform live in the recording studio. After selling the finished record to Atlantic/WEA, the label shed half of its roster during a merge with Elektra Records, including Apartment 26. The single "Give Me More" was a minor Modern Rock hit in 2004.
