In January 2007 their debut album "CHECK 1-2" was released in the Benelux by Munich Records. Their single I Won’t Cry got some airplay on Dutch national radio 3FM by dj Michiel Veenstra. The band signed with booking agent Rock’nRoll Highschool and played a lot of shows, including opening for Arctic Monkeys in Tivoli Utrecht and a tour through Spain. From 2009 until 2011, The Check 1-2 took a break because drummer Peter van Rijn had moved to the U.S. In the summer of 2011 drummer Benny Olgers (of Melomanics fame) joined ranks.
The band recorded music for the documentary In Mijn Hoofd, which premiered at the Cinekid Festival and was also programmed at IDFA. In 2012 drummer Peter van Rijn returned from the U.S. and took back his spot behind the kit. Finally, in 2014 The Check 1-2 had written and recorded twelve songs for the album, again at the IJland Studio, with extra dubs at the infamous Hok P of Maarten Heijblok. The LP "Bring it all Down" will be out in April 2015, on Crash Records as well as on the Spanish label FOLC Records, owned by the infamous partypunkers Los Chicos.
In June, The Check 1-2 will do a tour through Spain to promote the album. With their new bass-player Erwin Woldring they are locked and loaded to take the stage again. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
