Different Light were formed in Malta at the end of 1994 by Trevor Tabone, Mark Agius Cesareo, Richie Rizzo and Trevor Catania. Loads of gigs were played throughout 1995 and an early version of 'In the Grey' was recorded for a compilation album. 'All About Yourself', the band's first album, was recorded in April 1996 and released in June of the same year. The band spent the rest of the year touring Malta to promote the album.
Mark Agius Cesareo left the band in early 1997 and was replaced by Jeremy DeMaria. The band supported Fish (ex Marillion) in a festival in Malta in September 1998. A mini-album (EP) called 'A Kind of Consolation' was released at the end of 1999 with David Cassar Torreggiani on guitars. At this point, Different Light split up and so ended the first chapter.
Fast forward to 2008, Trevor Tabone decided to reform the band in Prague CZ, together with Hynek Kocourek and Petr Lux. With the help of Daniel Charron and Premek Matejovic, an album entitled 'Icons that Weep' was recorded and released in November 2009. The next three years were spent playing live together with new members Jirka Matousek, Bill Etheridge and Brian Reagan.
In early 2015, a compilation album called 'Il Suono della Luce' was released, which includes the best material from the first three albums plus one unreleased track. With the departure of Bill Etheridge and Brian Reagan, the band were joined by Petr Matousek and Petr Lux and recording was started on an album called 'The Burden of Paradise' which released on 29 February 2016.
