Hey, y'all! How y'all doing? We hope all is swell. Anyways, it's been ages since our last full band do so Shaneil hustled us a slot at 2crank's Spotlight Open Mic this Sunday at Rum Jungle KL. We're on at about 9.30pm. :D
Don't know where this Rum Jungle is? Well, it's simple, plug in "Rum Jungle KL" into Google Maps and it'll show you the way. We'll be playing a couple of newly written tunes and a couple of old favourites too. So, be there. ;)
Hey, y'all! We'll be playing Merdekarya on Tuesday, April 1st, 2014 unplugged, like MTV Unplugged, that one with Nirvana minus the strings and accordion, because we don't know anyone who plays 'em instruments. :/
Why an unplugged gig? Well, we were offered the opportunity, and we really like Merdekarya
. Shaneil and Riz often play acoustic here and there, but this will be very different, because it'll be the whole band, with drums.
Our CDs will be retailing for RM30 a pop, and pre-orders for Hameer's debut album will be going for RM20 a pop. Whiskeys are RM10. Beers ain't that expensive either. So, I tell you what, do expect a very inebriated set.
So, we received a tweet today from pandarocketship mentioning that Forget, the 9th tune from the album, was reviewed, and I read it, and was happy. This would be our first ever album review. :)
Malaysian rock outfit The Endleaves have released their debut, self-titled full-length album. The 10-track album is a collection of songs that hark back to the grunge rock hits of the 90s. As listeners, we are treated to sludgy slabs of guitar driven-rock in tracks like ‘Just Dream On’ and presented with a mellower sound on tracks like the classic-rock tinged, melodically accessible ‘Set Me Free’.
On first listen, the songs on the album come across as beguiling, yet simple. The band has adopted an in-your-face approach that has led to 10 tracks that are rather different, yet undeniably consistent.
The track ‘Forget’ is a subdued number that starts off moody and contemplative. By the second chorus however, ‘Forget’ adopts an almost pleading tone which the band uses as leverage to turn the track into a soaring rock number with energetic conviction. There’s nothing remarkably new or innovative about the track itself – you’re bound to have heard other songs done in similar fashion. However, The Endleaves succeed in still leaving an impression despite making use of the familiar (and at times overdone). Have a listen to ‘Forget’ below.
Additionally, if you find yourself in Kuala Lumpur this February 7th, join The Endleaves at Merdekarya for their album launch. Details here.
Our debut self-titled album is now live on BandCamp, folks! Just click the little play button to listen to the tracks, then click the little buy button to grab yourself a digital copy of the album at it's highest quality! :D
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all our friends and fans who have supported us so far, the organisers who have booked us for shows, the venues we've been working with, and, well, that's about it actually. :)
We will be releasing the debut self-titled album by January 31st, 2014 via BandCamp and we will be having a listening party of sorts on Friday, February 7th, 2014 at the awesome Merdekarya. The 10-tune album will be retailing for RM30 physically within Malaysia, $10 digitally everywhere else.
We will be selling the album at a discounted rate during the listening party at Merdekarya
so do like us on Facebook
for immediate updates and such on when exactly the listening party is going to be. We will only be printing 1,000 copies so make it a point to grab yours before stock runs out. Cheers, and salutations!
We'll be playing Page 2 next, next Thursday i.e. January 16th, 2014 to kick off the new year! The album may, or may not be ready by then, but, we will be playing a couple of tunes from our yet-to-be-recorded second album.
As per usual, you can click the above picture to be redirected to the Facebook event where RSVPs are greatly appreciated, just in case we decide to give out freebies. Oh and directions are there too! See y'all there! ;)
