Korea was formed in Stockholm in 2003 and was quickly discovered by the American producer Blake Althen who realized the powerful potential that the band possessed. Korea recorded a self-titled EP along with Blake, but the band decided to break with the producer. In 2008 Korea released their debut "For The Present Purpose 'which got great reviews from magazines such as Kerrang! Big Cheese, Rock Hard, Legacy, Orkus, Sonic Seducer, Rock Sound etc.

Now, two years later, Korea is back with the sequel "The Delirium Suite" on which the band raised the bar considerably and without any doubt will take Korea to the very top of modern rock bands. First single out from the album is Korea´s hard-hitting version of Radiohead’s old classic “Street Spirit (Fade Out)”.
