Triple 8 (aka 888) were a five-piece hip-hop style British boy band, who were signed to Polydor Records. The group were promoted as the British equivalent of 'N Sync, and rivals to manufactured boy bands such as Westlife and A1.
The group had two successful singles: "Knockout" and "Give Me a Reason", which charted at number 8 and 9 respectively in the UK Singles Chart. The group parted company with their record label in 2004, leaving their album, Heavy W8, unreleased. In 2005, they reformed with new member Stewart Macintosh, and released a third single, "Good 2 Go", which only reached number 42. McIntosh replaced Iain James Farquharson.
