The band comprises Jonas Dahl, Arne Kvalvik, Kjetil Ovesen, and Ådne Meisfjord, and was formed in 2001 under the name 'The Beautiful People'. When they substituted their name, they took their new name from the Marquis De Sade’s 120 Days Of Sodom. Originally based in their hometown of Kristiansund, they moved to Oslo in 2002. After two EPs on the Public Demand label, the group signed to prominent Norwegian independent label Smalltown Supersound.[1] Their self-titled debut album was released on 10 October 2006, and had several positive reviews by North American publications.[2][3][4] The group toured the United States shortly after the release of the album. 120 has started producing new material for a record after returning to Oslo in 2008, following major touring around the United States and Europe. On June 7, 2012, 120 Days announced that they would end the band by September the same year. The band had played together almost 11 years before announcing their last concert ever in September 2012.
