Hadouken! are a grindie band based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. The band formed after James Smith and Daniel "Pilau" Rice met at Leeds University. It was here they began their own record label, Surface Noise Records. After forming the label, Smith began writing and demoing the first Hadouken! tracks. In February 2007, Hadouken! self-released a two song limited edition vinyl, a double-a side of "That Boy That Girl" and "Tuning In." The former gained popularity after the video made it to number one in MTV Two's NME Chart.
