Earlier known as "Sex Beat" and "Beautiful People, The". Signed to Smalltown Supersound (Norway) and Vice Records (US) in 2006.
120 Days found each other in Kristiansund, Norway, but decided if they ever were to reach out to a larger audience they'd need to move to another town. And so they pooled their money, bought an RV and drove it to Oslo and lived rent-free (you don't have to pay rent for the sidewalk) creating music in their tight-quarters studio/mobile home. Imagine a handful of Neu!, Spacemen 3 and XTRMNTR-era Primal Scream obsessed kids hanging in an RV in a city that sees periods of darkness that last for weeks on end. Then 120 Days makes a lot more sense.

120 Days was a Norwegian band. The group consists of Jonas Dahl, Arne Kvalvik, Kjetil Ovesen, and Ådne Meisfjord, and was formed in 2001 under the name 'The Beautiful People'. 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. Their self-titled debut album was released on 10 October 2006, and had several positive reviews by North American publications. 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.
