Bandgeschichte[Bearbeiten]

We Were Promised Jetpacks haben sich 2003 in Edinburgh gegründet. Ihren ersten Auftritt hatten sie beim Wettbewerb battle of the bands ihrer Schule, den sie für sich entschieden. Später zog es die Band nach Glasgow:

There was a time when we first moved to Glasgow (we grew up and went to school in Edinburgh, then three of us moved to Glasgow and one of us to Stirling) and started playing proper gigs in proper venues. Playing in Edinburgh before was weird as we were underage, so ended up playing some odd nights. Which was cool, but when we moved to Glasgow we were of drinking age and we started playing places like Sleazy’s and whatnot. We felt like a proper band.
