Genres: Pop / Rock
Decades: 2000s


Emanating from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, this quartet is one of countless rock acts to emerge in the new millennium that owe a debt to early 90s Seattle rock masters such as Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, and Alice In Chains. The foundation of the band lay in the late 90s outfit Fallout, which featured guitarist Jeremy Hora and drummer Danny Craig. When the duo tried out former high school classmate Dallas Smith on vocals all the pieces fell into place. It was not long before Nickelback singer and guitarist, Chad Kroeger, became interested in the band, and produced several of their songs in the hope of landing them a recording contract. The ploy worked, as the newly renamed Default signed with TVT Records. Bass player Dave Benedict completed the line-up on the band’s debut album, The Fallout, which was released in 2001. Produced by Rick Parashar, the album spawned a substantial US radio and MTV hit, ‘Wasting My Time’.
