The Others are an Englishmarker rock band, signed to Poptones in July 2004 and their eponymous debut album was released on 31 January 2005.

The band were renowned for their live shows, particularly the so-called "guerilla gigs", which saw them play on a Hammersmith and City Line tube train, on the dodgems at the Leeds festival, and on the famous Abbey Roadmarker crossing in London. The band, particularly lead singer Dominic Masters, maintain a close relationship with their fanbase, affectionately known as the 853 Kamikaze Stage-Diving Division. The band are also known for accessibility which resulted in the popularity of the websites forum, which played a key part in keeping the fanbase together and organizing the following to collect together for gigs.

Their self titled debut album divided critics and public alike on its release in 2005. Whilst NME gave it 8/10, Q Magazine rated it one of the worst albums of the year, mocking Masters' boastful attitude towards drug abuse. In April 2006, the magazine placed the album at Number 40 in a countdown of "The 50 Worst Albums Ever", claiming the band had taken "the freewheeling spirit of [contemporary band] The Libertines... remove(d) all the talent and added even more crack. This [album] is what's left". By autumn 2006, the disappearance of their early promise and seeming fall from grace led NME to run an article entitled 'Whatever Happened to Dominic Masters?'

In an interview with Phoenix FMmarker in December 2005, the band confirmed that they had left Poptones and in October 2006 they released their second album, Inward Parts. In August 2007, drummer Martin Oldham left the band for health reasons.

In November 2009 Dominic was named 19th greatest rockstar of the noughties by NME magazine.

The band are currently writing and recording songs for their third album expected in 2010.
