The Swedish band Eskobar started playing together in the current lineup in late 1996 – then located in a small town called Åkersberga, 30 kilometres north of their current hometown Stockholm.
1999 they signed a record deal with V2 Music after having sent them a three-song demo. The first single, On A Train, was released on November 21, 1999. The debut album ‘Til We’re Dead was released in March the following year. Since 2006 Eskobar are running their own label, named Gibulchi Records.
