Splitting Adam is a Canadian contemporary rock band from Vancouver consisting of five band members: Seren (lead vocals), Thompson (guitar / keyboards / vocals), Antonio (guitar), Rob (bass) and Jordo (drums).
After solidifying their line-up in 2005, the band licensed their single ( on YouTube) to Electronic Arts' Need For Speed: Undercover (NFSU). In 2008, before the official release of the game, the band performed with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra as part of Video Games Live (VGL), featuring never-before-seen footage from NFSU. In 2009, they toured with VGL, making appearances alongside various major symphonies including the Calgary Philharmonic, Winnipeg Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and San Diego Symphony Orchestras.
See Canadian Videogame Awards on YouTube, Vancouver BC (May 5, 2010).
Following their VGL tour, the band formed a brief partnership with Rethink Communications in creating their new album cover. Under the direction of former Art Director Jeff Harrison, the album was nominated for a Grammy award in the category on YouTube. Splitting Adam remains one of the few independent bands to have earned a Grammy nomination.
The band made their last appearance as an ensemble in April 2010, outside Rogers Arena.
