The band

Estranged was formed in the year 2001 when Rich and Din were students in the International College of Music (ICOM) and soon met up with friends with similar musical interest. The band got their first gig in TwelveSI and since then, participated in various band competitions including the Asian Beat Competition for year 2001 where they finished as 2nd runners-up and later earned their way into a slot for Rock the World, Malaysia’s biggest annual rock festival in the year 2003.

The band also played in various high profile shows including the Asian X-Games (2004), a couple of times for AXN (2003 & 2005), touring with musiccanteen.com, 8tv’s talk show Latte@8 and more.

After 4 months of hard work since the band begun hitting the studios, Estranged finally released their 11 track debut album entitled ‘In Hating Memory’. Mixed by engineer Mr. Norman Rashid and mastered by critically acclaimed, Latin Grammy nominee Mr. Eduardo Garcia. The first single Velocity started receiving constant airplay since June 2005 over major radio stations nation wide.

P/s: Looks like Rich has been here...been there...done this...done that! Probably believe that he still hasn't made much impact! Hopefully he will menuju puncak after much publicity from AF4. Anyway I uploaded two tracks Kembali (this song is equally good if not better than songs from Indonesian band and should be given more air play at least over X-Fresh.FM) and Choclate Syrup!
