We have two really cool gigs coming up in March. This Saturday (18.03.) we’ll be supporting our punk rock heroes The Damned on the A38 ship in Budapest, and on 31.03. we’ll play with Ravagers from Baltimore in the Chelsea, Vienna.
We’ve been around for quite a while now and nobody expected us to come up with our biggest hit at this point in our career, but we did bring out our biggest and our second biggest hit ever in the last 4 months of 2022. The Hungarian versions of Hungarian Satan and Viktorland got an unprecedented amount of positive reactions as a result, our social media metrics skyrocketed. We went from 2.0K YouTube subscribers to 3.2K and from 800 to 1150 Spotify subscribers.
On Spotify, our Christmas songs also did very well. In December, we’ve passed 50K monthly listeners, and three of our songs passed the 100K playcount. Christmas Is Canceled is almost at 150K by now.
We released 3 songs this year, before the two hit songs, we dropped a synth-punk song called Astrolena, which would have deserved more attention, but let’s not be greedy.
We played 2 gigs only in 2022, but we definitely plan to play more in 2023. We already have a bigger gig scheduled for 24 March in Budapest.
New Video: Viktorland
The new national anthem of Viktorland, formerly known as Hungary. It’s out on YouTube and Bandcamp and will be available on Spotify, Apple Music and other streaming services on 16 Dec.
New Video: Hungarian Satan
Hungarian Satan tells the true story of a miserably failed former prime minister revelling in the role of the regime’s boogeyman and ruining the chances of a democratic future for Hungary. Its movie villain mash-up video fits the song’s concept perfectly. The song will be available on Spotify, Apple Music and other streaming services on 7 Sep.
