Apartment 26 was an alternative 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.
