Band of the Week 9 - A'Z Bus

Easily one of my very favorite bands on this entire planet, A'Z Bus is a hard rocking trio out of Seoul, Korea. They are stellar in all aspects, with vocals that will literally floor you, and, as with so many of our Bands of the Week, some of our best friends. From the very first moment I saw them play, I was hooked, and we know that after this BOTW is finished, you will be too!

 

To get you started, we give you our intro video featuring one of the band's most popular songs. Enjoy this week's video and go check out their page, like it, follow them, learn all about them. Trust us, you won't regret it!

Album Story

 

Whichever album (or albums 😋) you pick up, you will be sure to put them in heavy rotation for years to come.

Here's our discography along with mini-reviews and links for, seriously, one of the best damn bands on the planet!

 

Smilecry (2014) - EP

We kid you not, this shockingly impressive debut is stellar. Beyond stellar! From beginning to end. Familiarize yourself with track 2, Monster, and then be BLOWN AWAY the first time you hear it live!

MONOmobile (2016) - EP

 

We got this album a few days before it was released, and we played it non-stop for...ever! Heaviness, darkness, power, energy, love. Each track welcomes you and then punches you, calms you then wrecks you, hitting you with funky bass, driving drums, power chords and vocals that you cannot imagine~ ♥ Buy it now, and then buy another for a friend. If you can listen to track 4, Victim, without double-thinking (and screaming), then cue up track 1, The Story, and apologize to yourself!

 

Buy it!

Oblivion (2017) - Single

We may be wrong, but we're pretty sure we were lucky enough to hear this first among the fans at one of our own shows, and as you will hear, we are some of the luckiest people in the world! Eery, stirring, and beautiful with fantabulous composition and perfect mixing in the recording. Just a taste of the future for this epic band!

Live Story

 

Live is the only true way to experience a band, and for us, this is extremely true for A'Z Bus. Honestly, my entire body shakes when I first hear WooJu's powerhouse of a voice, and it seems everyone in attendance is entranced from the first note until well after they've left the stage. If you're in Korea or Russia, you've got a good chance to see them often. If you're anywhere else in the world, tell the local clubs you know a great K-Rock band and get them an invite!

 

Here's what to expect at an A'Z Bus gig:

-WooJu will politely begin with soft tones and beautiful melodies before hitting a roaring pitch that will shake your core.

-Seok-jae's bass lines will grab your attention and get your hips moving.

-Kang will, very seriously 😜, drive the songs and build up the tension.

 

Check out this energetic clip from CJ Azit, where they opened for our other friends, HarryBigButton.

Song Story

 

If you've been heeding our advice and listening to A'Z Bus all week, then your new year has started off right! We'll finish up week 9 with the most important piece, the songs!

Here are our 5 essential A'Z Bus tracks and a few words why you should go buy them now:

 

Monster - because we've all been there 😜

Oblivion - eerily powerful all around!

Fame - rage against greed 🤘

The Story - hard-rocking party, with a smile 😎

Victim - for strength 💔

 

Choosing just 5 is always a challenge, and truthfully, we love absolutely everything this band does. Listen whenever you need a lift, or to rage, or to just feel something 🤟

Your bonus this week is this lyric video for Victim, a blast to sing along with!

~Keep RoKing my friends!~
