    from wikipedia

    Default is a Canadian post-grunge/alternative rock band from Vancouver, British Columbia. Since forming in 1999 they have released three albums, and have sold more than a million records. The majority of their fan base is in Canada, but they gained popularity in the United States for their hit singles "Wasting My Time" and "Deny".

    The band was discovered by Chad Kroeger, the vocalist of Nickelback (also a Canadian post-grunge/alternative rock band), when their demo tape caught his attention. Kroeger subsequently lent support and production assistance to their first and second albums. Default's debut album The Fallout achieved instant success due to strong radio play of "Wasting My Time" and "Deny". In 2002 Default won the Juno Award for "Best New Group". On April 30, 2003 the record achieved a platinum album RIAA certification, signifying a million records sold.

    Follow-up album Elocation Failed to gain the same amount of popularity in the United States as their first album, however they did solidify their popularity in Canada. Elocation was most successful for their hit single "(Taking My) Life Away" which was played extensively on the radio and television in Canada. Their second single from "Elocation" was "Throw It All Away", which was then followed by "All She Wrote". Elocation was subsequently nominated "Best Rock Album of the Year" at the 2005 Juno Awards. The single "Count On Me" from their third album, One Thing Remains, was a hit on Canadian radio stations before the album was even released. After that, they released One Thing Remains and the album was very successful in the United States.

    Default's hit single "Deny" was featured in the video and computer game NHL 2003 by EA Sports. Their song "The Memory Will Never Die" was used as a secondary theme song for WWE's WrestleMania 23. They also contributed an original song called "Blind" to Music from and Inspired by Spider-Man.

    According to Default's blog on their official website, the band was originally hoping to have their fourth album finished and ready to be released by the summer/early fall of 2007, but the date was postponed to March 2008. TVT Records filed for bankruptcy in February, and was sold in a private auction to The Orchard, an online independent music distributor. The album is currently finished, and a tentative release date of March 2009 was announced in mid-2008, but the material was not released. In an audio interview with Alternative Addiction Radio, it was announced that the new record, Comes and Goes would be released in September 2009 via EMI Canada Records. The first single is "All Over Me." The second single, "Little Too Late", was released in Canada on August 25th.

    Comes and Goes is Default's upcoming fourth album. It is scheduled for release on September 29, 2009 in Canada. A U.S. release date has not been established. So far the band has released two singles from the album; "All Over Me" and "Little Too Late", both released exclusively in Canada. The music video for "All Over Me" was released on September 21st 2009.
