Booking Pendulum to DJ at your event will cause a stir! We are a booking agent for Pendulum and can book Pendulum to perform for your guests. Pendulum are an Australian electronic rock band formed in 2002 by three members (Gareth McGrillen Rob Swire, and Paul Harding) who came from similar musical backgrounds and shared a passion for electronic music. When it came to creating music Pendulum all decided that they would draw inspiration from other genres, techniques and styles in the hope of producing a sound like no other. Their experience and knowledge from years in the industry helped to fuel this ideology.
Their first single, titled ‘Vault’ was released through respected label 31 Records, it was a huge hit in 2003 and had great acclaim within the Drum and Bass scene in the UK. The success led the band to move to London so they could feel more immersed and involved in the industry. The track also won a Knowledge Magazine Award for the ‘Best Single of 2003’.
Soon after moving to the UK, the band joined the label Breakbeat Kaos, spearheaded by the iconic DJ Fresh and renowned Adam F. This brilliant opportunity really helped to launch their career and they followed it up with a tour around the world to boost their profile and introduce their new sound to the masses. Their debut album for the label was titled ‘Hold Your Colour’ and was certified gold in Australia. Pendulum’s main single from the album; ‘Another Planet’ topped the UK Dance Charts.
Their popular track ‘Granite’ helped to propel them into the mainstream, with major airplay and the return to their rock roots leading to recognition from Kerrang, their resulting album ‘In Silico’ reached no. 2 on the UK Charts and helped to expand their fan base even more. With their popularity on a steady rise, Pendulum followed up their success performing at major festivals over the summer, appearing on stage at everywhere from the Reading and Leeds festival to Creamfields, Download and T in the Park.
Pendulum’s amazing momentum in the industry led to a sequence of sold-out London shows and a fantastic UK headlining tour performing to over 50,000 people. They continued this overwhelming success with a tour in the US, with many sold-out gigs and appearances on high-profile shows such as Carson Daly and Jimmy Kimmel. Storming ahead with crowd-pleasing sets at SXSW and Coachella, Pendulum’s incredible rise to fame led to Grammy-nominated director Paul Caslin putting together a visual celebration of their live performances.
Their third studio album, titled ‘Immersion’ was released mid-year in 2010 and reached the top of the UK Album Charts. Pendulum’s following two UK tours were also sold-out and culminated in two massive shows at London’s Wembley Arena and tours around Australia and Europe. After a hiatus, the band continues to dominate the festival circuit and have plans for a new album to be released soon.
