Logan is a five piece hard rock band from Glasgow, Scotland.

Their self-funded debut album First Leaf Fallen was released in 2003 and they followed this up with Welcome to the Wasteland a year later, building an impressive UK fan base the two releases selling in excess of 8,000 copies.

In 2005 they secured high profile support slots with American hard rock band Alter Bridge, which helped them to become one of the most talked about unsigned bands in the UK, and spreading the word via the internet to the US, Europe and Australia.

In June 2006 they released their first single “When I Get Down” which debuted at No.12 on the Official UK Rock Chart and proceeded to stay in the chart for seven weeks – a feat never before achieved by an unsigned band. September 2006 saw the release of their third album Cruel Little World and their second single “Hallowed Ground” followed, again breaking into the UK Rock Chart Top Twenty, Logan becoming the only unsigned band to have achieved two successive hits.

2007 saw the band win two awards at The UK Glasswerks Awards for New Music and a nomination as ones to watch in 2008 by the UK\'s leading rock magazine Classic Rock and an inclusion on the accompanying cover mount CD.

2008 saw the members of the band drop their day jobs and go full time, signing a new management deal and rehearsing unrelentingly. Airplay of the forthcoming single "Lost & Found" on Rock Radio and support from fans via a Glasgow newspaper, won the band a support slot with Bon Jovi at Scotland’s National Stadium, Hampden Park, in front of 40,000 fans, many of who saw the band for the first time. The subsequent eight-date UK summer headline tour pushed sales of Cruel Little World to sell out status. Total sales of all three releases are now nudging 30,000 with no label support.

In the midst of this surge of activity, Logan were approached by US film producers to submit a song for the movie The Jump Off featuring hip-hop star Chris Brown. Bemused by their selection they requested a copy of the script and composed “The Great Unknown” to compliment the storyline, but keeping their signature melodic hard rock sound. The producers not only loved the song but were knocked out by the band’s approach, commenting that virtually every other artist had submitted an existing track from their back catalogue. The band head to LA in October to meet with the producers and spend some time cutting videos for “Lost & Found” and “When I Get Down” - heading back in early 2009 to shoot The Great Unknown during film production. A showcase gig is scheduled at the world famous Roxy Theatre on Sunset Strip on October 29 already generating interest in industry circles.

A new pressing of Cruel Little World with three bonus tracks, including “Lost & Found” will be released on November 1 to compliment a 25 date UK and European tour in support of Alter Bridge running from November 4 until December 10. Logan will round off the year with a Christmas Homecoming Show in Glasgow.
