SUBURBAN TRIBE was a metal and rock band from Finland. It released its first album “Primitive“ in 1994.
The line up featured members of two of Finland’s greatest thrash metal bands; Janne Joutsenniemi, who played in the band STONE, and guitarist Roope Sirén, who played in AIRDASH.
The band’s name was originally typed Sub-Urban Tribe, but it was changed to its present shape after a short break in 2001. TV-series Big Brother Finland choose their song “While The World Awaits” as theme song in season 2006.
In March 2011 the group announced their decision to disband in July 2011. The reason to call it quits on their 20th anniversary was the lack of motivation to write new material.
SUBURBAN TRIBE is remembered as an energetic live band, and for their hits “First Spring Day”, “Frozen Ashes”, “Oil and Water” ,“Silent Rain”, and the latest “Now and Ever After”.
The band released a total of eight studio albums. The last album, “Now and Ever After“, was released in spring 2010. The first four albums were sang by Jouni Markkanen. Ville Tuomi from KYYRIA became SUBURBAN TRIBE‘s vocalist in 2000.
Janne Joutsenniemi, Roope Sirén and Alec Hirst-Gee are the founding members of the band. Emerson Burton played keyboards between 1996 and 2000. Euge Valovirta became second guitarist in 2006.
