Subsonica were formed in Turin in 1996 by underground producer and Africa Unite guitarist Max Casacci and singer Samuel Romano, who soon also enroll keyboardist and long time friend Boosta, together with Ninja and Pierfunk to complete (on drums and bass respectively) a straight forward and top notch rhythm section, for what is immediately nicknamed “an unidentified musical object”. The eponymous debut album comes in ’97, shortly followed by a stunning performance, opening for U2, on the MTV Day main stage. The album includes the collaboration with iconic pop singer Antonella Ruggiero: the cover version of her “Per Un’Ora D’Amore” becomes a radio hit, and paves the way for the album, which sells over 200k copies.The follow up album comes in 1999: for “Microchip Emozionale” (winner of the Italian Music Award), Vicio becomes the band’s new bass player. The buzz around Subsonica is huge, but still most “official media” seem not to care about the band. Until they decide, surprisingly, to compete at the following year’s Sanremo Festival with an explicit and uncompromising track, “Tutti i miei sbagli”, in which they mix house-beats with furious electric guitars. Subsonica are now definitely on the map both for the critics and the more mainstream audience. Thus they can go back to touring, just in time to gain the award for “Best Italian Act” at the MTV EMA’s.With their third, called “Amorematico” (January 2002), the band explore new sounds, sometimes anticipating future international trends. It sells over 100k, and they play in front of over 350k people during the following tour dates. They then decide to release a live album (“Controllo del livello di rombo”, 2003), and again secure the best Italian band award for MTV.With more explorations and new horizons in mind, the 2005 studio album “Terrestre” is more rock and electric. It immediately tops the Italian album charts, and sells over 110k in the first month after the release. The attention it ignites is huge, and it’s followed shortly by a live dvd and double cd, including some unreleased acoustic tracks.“L’Eclissi”, fifth studio album, hits the shelves on Nov 23rd 2007. The following tour sells out at all main Italian cities, as well as in Bruxelles and London. The video for “Quattrodieci” opens the 4th season of Lost on Fox Italy.Subsonica then decide to remaster and retouch the highlights and gems of their catalogue: the collection “Nel vuoto per mano” is released on Oct 2008, to document the band’s first 12 years, with a new unreleased track, “Il vento”On April 22nd 2009, Subsonica represent Italian music at the World Earth Day concert in Rome.Since January 2010 the band is behind all music breaks and jingles of national FM radio RadioRai2. In Summer 2010 Subsonica are one of the few Italian bands to be guest on Sziget Festival Main Stage.On March 8th 2011 the band releases the new album Eden, which becomes a huge success shortly after opening at #2 in the italian chart. The first single off the album, Istrice, is one of the most played songs on italian radio and the spring tour gathers a total of over 90k tickets sold spread over 11 gigs.
