Indus Creed to Rock Pune
Popular Rock band Indus Creed will perform in the city, this evening, as part of their India tour. The Guide chats with lead singer Uday Benegal to ask him about the launch of their latest album, Evolve, and their continuing love affair with the city
Hailed as the pioneers of contemporary Indian Rock, Indus Creed is ready to spread hysteria across the nation with their pan-India tour, as part of promotions for their latest album, Evolve.
After getting Delhi, Chennai and Bengaluru to groove to their sound, the band is ready to rock the city this evening. The band will perform exclusive tracks from their latest album, Evolve, which has been produced by the band members themselves.
The band claims that the album breaks new ground with their high-on-energy and big-on-melody sound for which they have also managed to rope in mixing prodigy, Tim Palmer, who has worked with the likes of Pearl Jam, Robert Plant, Ozzy Osboune and Porcupine Tree. Plans to launch the album in five cities — Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru, Pune and Mumbai — also includes a Q‘n’A session with the band.
Ask them how they feel about performing in the city, and they are all smiles. “Pune has had a thriving music scene for a long time, particularly when it comes to Rock,” says Benegal.
“We’ve always loved playing in Pune, right from our earliest days till now. The city has always had an enthusiastic audience for Rock, which works for us,” says lead singer Uday Benegal, adding, “We’ll keep coming back as long as we can.”
“From playing to large, packed houses at the BJ Medical College grounds to more intimate gatherings at clubs like High Spirits, it’s always been a fun experience,” he says.
The band is all praise for the energy and enthusiasm of the city audiences. “This college town keeps the music scene fresh and slamming good,” Benegal signs off.
