New York, NY (PRWEB) December 17, 2004
Harsh Krieger, the acclaimed modern rock band from Nashville Tennessee are spending their 2nd week on FMQBÂs radio charts with their debut single ÂHomeÂ; including 11t on the FMQB Sub Modern Top 25 Singles Chart, 18t on the FMQB Sub Modern Top 25 Albums Chart respectively.
After spending most of the year recording their debut record, Harsh Krieger spent time testing out the songs by playing select shows and sending the record to national specialty radio. ÂWe were confident that we had a good record on our hands but we wanted to take our time to get each track exactly the way we wanted it,Â says Jake Harsh, lead singer, guitarist and co-founder. ÂNow that the record is finished we can concentrate on playing shows.Â
ÂHarsh KriegerÂs success at specialty radio reaffirmed our belief in the record and enabled a strong introduction for their label, Tabula Rasa; which successfully charted its first single and release,Â stated Georgia McBride, the bandÂs manager. Due out in April 2005, Harsh Krieger has already placed four tracks from their self-titled debut on MTVÂs The Real World, Road Rules, and Real World/Road Rules Challenge and are featured on MTV.com and Bunim-murray.com.
Picking up industry support and partners along the way, Harsh Krieger grabbed the attention of Gibson guitar after headlining a private event at the Gibson showroom in New York City in August. The band continues to promote its relationship with the musical equipment giant and will be giving away a Gibson guitar on-air at Palm Springs, CaliforniaÂs KMRJ in April to promote its debut release.
Specialty Director at FMQB, Drew Kondylas says "Harsh Krieger, a fantastic mix of melodic rock and profound pop, wraps well-written lyrics into a unique sound. The end result is a band with latent potential and limitless possibilities." According to FMQB, Harsh Krieger has in the past 6 weeks received spins at specialty radio on twenty three stations in thirteen states, including Hawaii. Harsh Krieger is also on the Wazee Top Tracks for the 3rd straight week and is one of their most downloaded artists with ÂGunsmokeÂ and ÂLumingÂ also on the upcoming record.
The Harsh Krieger EP sampler is available online at harshkreiger.com and select indie retailers in Nashville.
