PIST.ON released two albums – ‘Number One’ through Mayhem / Atlantic Records in 1996 and ‘$ell Out’ through Mayhem / Music For Nations in 1999.
Following the release of the Josh Silver produced debut ’Number One’ and the first single ‘Grey Flap’ through Mayhem, PIST.ON had an instant reaction with fans, leading to strong album sales. The attention the band was gaining sparked major label interest from Atlantic Records, who subsequently secured a deal for the world-wide release of ‘Number One’. However the relationship with Atlantic was short lived. With sales approaching gold status, PIST.ON came under pressure from the label to make a number of changes which the band were unhappy with. As a result the band took the decision to leave Atlantic.
PIST.ON toured the US and Europe on numerous tours, with Marilyn Manson, Korn, Clutch, Fu Manchu, Type O Negative, Queensryche, The Misfits and many more. The tours solidified the bands presence, building a healthy following on both sides of the Atlantic.
