2012 Roundup

There’s just a few days left from 2012, so let’s do our traditional year-end roundup:

Videos: Out biggest achievement this year was out first official music video for Rewound and its Hungarian version Retro, which was played in rotation on MTV Hungary and has been watched 110,000 times on YouTube (so far) if we add up the views of the 2 versions. It also helped to increase the views of our earlier videos big time, so now our YouTube channel’s total viewcount exceeds 300K, which is quite a big improvement from last year.

Gigs: We only played 10 gigs this year, but this includes gigs in Austria, Germany and some of the best venues in Budapest. It would be good to play more next year. Yes, we say this every year, but booking is the least fun part of doing a band and it seems to get more difficult every year. But we’ll figure out something.

Radio: Rewound got airplay in rotation by Hungary’s state music channel Petőfi in the first quarter of the year, and by Fortuna Rádió from the South of Hungary for most of the year.

Songs: We’ve started writing songs for a new EP that we’d like to release around March next year. We’ll post more about this soon.

August Punk Rock Action

After a pretty eventless July here comes August filled with punk rock action: we’ll play 3 gigs in 3 countries.

– 11 Aug, Saturday: We’ll play a skate festival in Grossraming, Austria – Facebook event
– 25 Aug, Saturday: We’ll play Wunstock Festival in Wunsiedel, Germany with our ex-drummer Attila filling in for Shorty – Facebook page

Broken bones can’t stop us

Two weeks ago William broke his arm as a result of an ice skating accident, but it didn’t stop him from playing a perfect gig last night in Austria. Max respect!
By the way, Rock Im Saal was awesome: perfect sound and organization, nice audience, so thanks to everyone who made this possible!
And what else could have been a more perfect ending than hearing our own song on the radio on the way back?

Status Update

As you may have noticed already, our website has got a new design and looks better than ever. That’s because the new EP is just around the corner. Now you only have to wait a couple of more weeks and you can listen to it as we’ll make it freely downloadable. Its title will be Rewound, and it will feature a cool surf rock intro plus 3 catchy-as-hell smash hits.
Next week we’ll play two gigs, on Friday we’ll return to the amazing Bozak club in Teplice, and on Saturday we’ll play White Trash Fast Food in Berlin, as part of the Berlin Music Week. And we already have a gig in Budapest scheduled for December with our old buddies The Joystix plus the Deleeders from Italy.
It would be cool to play a couple of more gigs in Oct-Nov, so you know, just let us know if you want to book us.
