A lot of good things happened to us in 2017, here’s a brief summary.
We came out with 6 new songs this year. Endless Halloween was featured on Cleopatra Records’ Punk Rock Halloween compilation alongside bands like the Dwarves, Reel Big Fish, UK Subs, Vibrators, Calabrese, Guttermouth and many others. This release means a lot to us. (We were also part of Cleopatra’s Punk Rock Christmas comp in 2015, but that was not an original song but a Cheap Trick cover – which has gathered 18K plays on Spotify since then.)
Sid & Nancy Do NYC got featured on Spotify’s official New Punk Tracks playlist among the most important punk releases of August.
The video of Happy Birthday, which we released the year before, exploded on YouTube in 2017, getting over half a million views and becoming our most viewed video. (Never underestimate the power of tits!)
The highlights of 2015 were supporting Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg and releasing a Christmas punk cover on Cleopatra Records, but we also released 5 new songs (in both English and Hungarian versions), all of which came with videos gathering a total of about 200K views on YouTube. (This also includes our 6th new song, The Legend of Lee Marvin, which came out at the very end of 2014.) Continue reading
For us, 2014 started with the release of War and Peace, which ended up as our most popular track on Soundcloud so far, and its Hungarian version got a high number of spins on local radio stadions. Continue reading
Time for our traditional year-end roundup! Continue reading
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.
