KUALA LUMPUR, FEB 7 – Kyoto Protocol’s much-anticipated second album “CATCH THESE MEN” is their first independent, full-length release, and has been launched with their first-ever nationwide tour.
They have come a long way since the Global Battle of the Bands Malaysia finals, where they won 2nd place (although, personally I think they deserved 1st). I haven’t seen them since the Hitz.FM Birthday Invasion in 2012, but getting to see them again was definitely a pleasure.
The band started their tour in Johor at the CT Plaza the day before the official album launch here at the Art Printing Works (APW), Bangsar, and will be making two more stops where you can catch them:
Saturday 14 February, 8:00PM at Penang, Hin Bus Depot with special guests, Damn Dirty Apes and The Venopian Solitude.
Sunday 15 February, 8:00PM at Ipoh, P.O.R.T.(People of Remarkable Talents) with special guests, Couple and Muck.
If you didn’t know already, their shows are FREE OF CHARGE as a gesture of appreciation to their legions of fans. You can RSVP at www.kyotoband.com, where the first 100 fans to RSVP at each venue will get a complimentary copy of the album.
