2015 has been a record breaking year for Danish alternative pop-rock band, Suits Boulevard.
The bands fifth single “Broken Wings” was number 1 on Canadian radio for 6 weeks in a row, was recommended by national radio in Denmark (DR) and had country-wide artist showcase broadcasted in the States – inter alia on FOX, CNBC, ABC and more.
Since November 2014, the band has played more than 50 concerts, and has 2 summer tours coming up in the summer of 2015.
First tour, they are playing all outdoor concert venues in Denmark – and the second being a charity tour in cooperation with the Danish Cancer Society, visiting more than 100.000 people on the ”Stafet For Livet” tour (relay for life tour). All downloads and merch sales are donated to help fight cancer.
The upcoming single, Getaway, which is on over 200 streaming and download outlets across the globe, is a summer song about get-together, youth and freedom.
The song is written and played by SuitsBLVD & Mathilde Damborg, recorded by GAMEBOiiS Entertainment (R) and filmed by BlackBox Media (CPH).
The band has prior to this release, expressed themselves through melancholy and alternatively, but now they boost their pop-rock side with Getaway.
”We have musically proven we could create slower, heartfelt songs – we can see that through the gradually increasing fan base and our showcase in the States – but now it’s time to let the distortion, catchy hooks and happiness shine through. The song, Getaway took 12 hours to write and record. There must have been something in us, which wanted to come out.”
Says Armin, lead singer.
