Formed in 1995, Club 8 were signed to the Spanish record label Siesta. They released a single called "Me Too" and an album calledNouvelle with an anorak pop sound.
In 1998, their second album The Friend I Once Had and the single "Missing You" were released. "Missing you" become a club and radio hit in Spain and somewhat of a college radio favorite in the US. The band started playing live. Their first gig was in New York at a March RecordsCMJ event in 1999. Their sound had by now developed into a more bossa nova and dance oriented one.
In 2001, Club 8's sound moved toward chill out and trip hop on its third, self-titled album. In the autumn of 2001, the band members locked themselves in Stockholm's Summersound Studios, writing songs and experimenting with Dub, C-86, trip hop, chill out, 80's, and bossa novasounds. The resulting album, released in 2002, is named Spring Came, Rain Fell.
The 2003 follow-up album, Strangely Beautiful, peaked at number 18 on the CMJ charts in the US. For the first time since 1999, the band released a single from the album and a corresponding video. Backed by five exclusive tracks, the song "Saturday Night Engine" was released as a single in the spring of 2003. The video made it to number 16 on the Up Northchart on MTV Nordic.
Afterward, Angergård formed a band called The Legends, which recorded 3 albums between 2004 and 2006. He also helped make an Acid House Kings album in 2005. In 2007, Club 8 released its 6th album The Boy Who Couldn't Stop Dreaming on Labrador.
Club 8's latest album, "The People's Record", was released May 18, 2010 and was produced by Jari Haapalainen.
