Biography

Survivor is an American rock band and was formed in the cold Chicago winter of 1977 by Frankie Sullivan and Jim Peterik. By the end of 1978, Survivor was signed to a record deal with Scotti Bros. Records.

Under patronage of John Kalodner, then head of A&R for Atlantic Records, Survivor went into the studio to cut their first self-titled album. This record, released in 1980 with the single “Somewhere in America,” did moderately well and started to build a loyal base of fans.

“Eye of The Tiger” spent seven weeks at the #1 spot on the U.S. charts.  The song won a Grammy, an Oscar nomination and was voted ‘Best New Song” by the Peoples Choice Awards.

Immediately following the record, the band toured extensively performing in sheds and stadiums.“Vital Signs” was released and achieved multi-platinum status as well as “Burning Heart”.
