Biography

After a ten year hiatus Living With Eating Disorders returned in 2020 with two new singles ‘The Snake’ released on Halloween and ‘Carcass’ released on Winter Solstice. Formed in 2001 by Andrea Kerr and Jared Hawkes the London duo caught the attention of renowned producer John Fryer (Depeche Mode, Cocteau Twins, NIN) who produced and released their debut EP ‘White Like Snow’ in 2004 on Johns label 'Something to Listen To'. The band received high praise for the EP and played several UK shows including support for ‘Psychic TV’ and ‘Whitehouse’, but increasing pressure surrounding the name forced the band to change it to Colt and on Halloween 2005 they released their debut album 'These Things Can't Hurt You Now, So Throw Them in The Fire' to critical acclaim from the independent worldwide press. In 2008, after the dissolution of 'Something to Listen to', Colt released ‘You hold on to what's not real’ featuring four tracks, and remixes by artists including Arlen Figgis and William Bennett, on their own label 'obvious records'. They also re-released 'These things can't hurt you now, so throw them in the fire' with bonus tracks 'Arm', 'Lullaby Remix', and 'Gag Reflex'. In 2019 the band released six original Ep’s, ‘Superhero’, ‘Polaroid’, ‘Harm’, ‘Everything You Hide’, ‘More Than This’, and ‘These Pieces That You’ve Saved’, remastered and available online for the first time. LWED are currently working on follow up tracks to ‘The Snake’ and ‘Carcass’ to be released this year.
