Losers are a British band consisting of DJ Eddy Temple-Morris, multi-instrumentalist Tom Bellamy (formerly of The Cooper Temple Clause), guitarist Paul Mullen (formerly of Yourcodenameis:milo and The Automatic). During their live performances they get supported by Dean "Denzel" Pearson (drums) and Sammi Doll (also keyboardist of Berlin/LA based band IAMX) and Bullet Height). Their former drummer was Mark Heron (formerly of Oceansize).

History[edit]

Losers formed in 2007 as the remix project of Temple-Morris and Bellamy.[1] They released their first album, "Beautiful Losers", in September 2010.[2] The first single "Flush", featuring rappers Riz MC and Envy, received coverage from the music press[3] and the BBC.[4]

Guitarist Paul Mullen joined the band in October 2010,[5] marking the start of a move away from dance-oriented music and towards more guitar-focused rock music. By summer 2011 drummer Mark Heron had also joined the band, and they began working on their second album "...And So We Shall Never Part".[6][7][8] The album was released on 4 April 2014.[9] The single "Turn Around" was used as the backing music for the trailer for the fourth season of US television series Game of Thrones,[10][11] while their single "Azan" was used on the trailer for the film Hercules and the video game Far Cry 3.[12] Lately they have been touring Europe as guests of Sisters Of Mercy.[13]

Their song "Us vs Night" was played during the first season of The Shannara Chronicles.[14]
