The Envy were formed in 2001, and currently
consists of Kristian Krøll , Kent Ricard Petersen &
played together in various bands since 1989, in 2001 Kent and Kristian
decide to form Fake
The Envy, as a sort of side project to their respective
bands. As it turns out, Fake The Envy
begins demanding more and more of both members time, respectively,
and in late 2002 their first demo CD is recorded, and sent to various
the next 8 months, the band earns several nice words on the way
from various A&R people, but no label wishes to sign them. Fake
The Envy goes into a state of hibernation, with both Kent
and Kristian focusing more energy on "real life", and
less on the band. Material is still written and recorded, but at
an alarmingly slow rate.
in 2004 however, a second demo CD is recorded and in February 2005,
the band once again, tries it's hand at landing a contract with
a label. At roughly the same time, Kristian decides to start a label,
with the purpose of releasing Fake The Envy's debut, and to promote
other Danish electronic acts.
July - October, 2005, Fake The Envy
re-records five songs from their older material, for their debut
album "As They Fall", released on January 16th, 2006.
In 2009, Jonas joins Fake The Envy after having served as a third live member in all but one concert.
