Errors are a four piece 'post-electro' band from Glasgow, Scotland. They are signed to Rock Action Records, the label founded and managed by the band Mogwai.
The band was formed as a mainly electronic-based project in Glasgow 2004 by members Simon Ward, Greg Paterson and Stephen Livingstone. After a handful of well-received hometown shows they attracted the attention of the band Mogwai who signed them to their own Rock Action Records imprint, alongside the likes of Part Chimp, Papa M and James Orr Complex.
Their debut release, the limited edition 7" single "Hans Herman", sold out quickly, and garnered them wider media attention, including an appearance on MTV's flagship Total Request Live show.
The band followed up their debut with the 'How Clean is your Acid House? EP in 2006. The first track on the EP, "Mr Milk", would become a signature tune for the band, later being used by the UK Channel 5 network as advert music for several of their US drama shows. Following the release of the EP the band recruited former Multiplies and Dananananaykroyd drummer James Hamilton to the band as a full time member. Despite only sporadic live performances given other commitments, the band were invited by UK dance music legends Underworld to open for them on their 2007 UK tour which aided the band in reaching a much larger audience and honed their skills as live performers.
Their debut album Its Not Something But It Is Like Whatever was released on Rock Action records in June 2008 to significant critical acclaim. The now-quartet's more complex and eclectic sound wrought comparisons in some quarters to US band Battles among others. The band also toured extensively throughout 2008 with Forward Russia, 65daysofstatic and Mogwai. They spent the first part of 2009 touring Europe, playing at the 2009 Eurosonic festival and extensively supporting Mogwai and Danish electro-rock band Whomadewho on separate tours. In 2010 the band released their critically acclaimed second full length album Come Down With Me on Rock Action records, the title of which is a play on the popular Channel 4 television series 'Come Dine With Me', and spent the Spring and Summer touring extensively throughout the UK and Europe. In October 2010 Errors toured the UK as Co-Headline act with fellow Scots The Twilight Sad and released a remix album titled 'Celebrity Come Down With Me', featuring remixes of tracks from their previous album by artists including Gold Panda and Ceephax Acid Crew
In 2011 Errors were invited performers at the South By Southwest festival in March and in the same month released a limited edition 7" picture disc single featuring new tracks 'Magna Encarta' and 'Ganymede'. In April/May 2011 Errors embarked upon a tour of the United States and Canada supporting Mogwai.
