The band Besides was founded in 2011 in Brzeszcze. In just three years it became one of the most popular bands on the Polish post-rock scene. The quartet, which, playing a niche music genre, won the hearts of millions of people in Poland during the TV talent show – Must Be The Music, won the main prize in the eighth edition of the program. The band has played over 200 concerts in Poland and abroad (e.g. France, Spain, Benelux, Switzerland, Russia, Ukraine, Baltic countries). Besides, so far they have released two albums We were so wrong and Everything is, which have been well received by fans and critics. Bystanders is their third studio album. It’s a concept-album with eight instrumental tracks, inspired by the stories of Auschwitz prisoners and the fates of local people living in the shadow of the camp during World War II. The members of Besides come from Brzeszcze (near Oświęcim) - the album was born out of a personal need to work through the emotions accumulated over the years, caused by the proximity of this particular place. The formation plays in the line-up: Piotr Świąder – Kruszyński – guitar, Janusz Binkowski – guitar, Artur Łebecki – bass, Bartłomiej Urbańczyk – drums.
