Formed in Finland’s capital, Helsinki, Sunrise Avenue is a rock band that adopts a pop rock sound that has earned the band a platinum record.

Sunrise Avenue came together in the 1990s but had very little success under their previous band name, and would receive rejection letters from many labels. After a name change in 2002, and after pitching the “On the Way to Wonderland” idea to a friend, a photocopier machine sales man called Mikko Virtala who would fund the band’s recording and a trip to meet the European labels and managers, the album was released on August 25th 2006. It was later certified Platinum in Germany, and shot up to number 2 in the Finnish chart and number 1 in Greece. Sunrise Avenue’s career was cemented firmly enough to be sustainable. They released the single “Fairytale Gone Bad” which also turned out to be an international hit, reaching the top 5 in 8 countries. This also earned the band a NRJ Music Award for Best Nordic Band, Best Newcomer Band and Best Nordic Album.

They followed the release of the album with an international tour including a spot at Rock AM Ring music festival in Germany, before re-entering the studio to work on what would be entitled “Popgasm”. They lead the release of the album with the single “The Whole Story” which made it to number 14 in the Finnish Singles Chart. The album was later released on May 6th 2009, and made it to number 5 on the Finnish charts, and number 7 in Switzerland.

The next hit single that the band released was called “Hollywood Hills” which achieved similar success to “Fairytale Gone Bad” making it to the top 10 of 7 countries, it was the first single from the album “Out of Style” which went to number 2 in their home country and the top ten of Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

They released “Unholy Ground” in 2013 which like it’s predecessor, made the top 10 of four countries. In 2014, the band released a Greatest Hits Compilation.
