X-DIVIDE was founded in 2005 by Jens (Management, Live Keys, second Vocals) and Eric (Vocals). Jens had been able to gain some live experience in the early 90s and had also worked as a live promoter of Electro parties in Germany for several years. Eric is a dedicated musician. He also performed live gigs nationwide with his own band- however in a different genre. Besides keyboards he can play the guitar very well. The first demos were done by Mattes aka Matt976/Empires in Defeat (Music/Arrangement) and Eric (Vocals/Lyrics) while Jens was responsible for promotion and marketing. X-DIVIDE soon became an „Insidertip“among Synthpop fans. After their first live appearances as X-DIVIDE a Promo EP was released in collaboration with MagMorMusic and Vasi Vallis (Frozen Plasma, NamNamBulu, Reaper) in 2007. The EP easily entered the German Alternative Charts although the band didn’t even have a label at that time. This quickly changed when Torben Schmidt of Infacted Recordings first saw the band- and signed it immediately. Vasi Vallis produced their debut EP and the release of ”X” brought out the song ”Forever” that remained in the TOP 10 of the German Alternative Charts (DAC) for 9 weeks.
