Throughout 2003 The Brandals been thru fire and high water, performing their string of original materials such as 100 km/jam, Lingkar Labirin, Marching Menuju Maut, Moonlight Chid, etc. Recording process started on March to October 2003 in The Doors (East Jakarta) recording studio, which resulted in the released of their DIY debut album 'The Brandals'. The album, which distributed nation wide by a small indie label Sirkus Record, sold 7500 copy. An impressive number for an indie release.
The Band continued their guerilla promo strategy, performed on underground gigs and uni/highschool music events. Promoting their album to various medias, and gain national highlight as one of the most notorious rock n roll band from the capital state of Indonesia, thanks to their lewd, provoking, disorderly act. Despite the disturbing image, The Brandals won critical approval from the medias and fans throughout the nation. Touring Java, Bali and Sumatera on 2004.
Recording for the second album commenced on November 2004 at Studio 18 Jakarta. 14 new materials were recorded under Flystation label. Gruelling working hours were paid off when the album's finished in May 2005. After few months of distribution search, the band hooked up with Warner Music for a distribution deal nation wide and presented what would be their best release yet, the eclectic 'Audio Imperialist'.
The album infused punk's ferocious, rockabilly's rhythm with country tinged rock n roll. Fuelled with lyrical contents that speaks urban life obsession on decadence, social injustice and rejected romance gone bad. Right now, the band's doing what they do best : touring, playing, spitting rough facts about the band's myth and bollocks...independently. Welcome to The Brandals experience!
