KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysian punk-rock trio Bunkface is celebrating their 10th anniversary with a special concert called ‘Bunkface X Live in Kuala Lumpur’ on Dec 24.
The concert to be held at 8 pm at Chin Woo Stadium, is also to show appreciation and gratitude to their loyal fans, better known as Bunkers.
“Chin Woo stadium has been chosen as we estimated that up to 6,000 people can come and watch our show. Also, it’s our 10th anniversary, so we want it to be big,” lead singer Sam or Shamsul Annuar Mohd Baharom told a press conference recently. The other two members are Youk and Paan.
The two-hour concert will feature more than 20 of their fans’ favourite hits like Masih Di Sini, Situasi, Panik and Darah Muda.
On the concert day itself, the band will also launch a special compilation album “Bunkface X”, featuring popular tracks from the band’s previous albums and EPs, and is set to be released in the market by early December.
The band also recently signed under Universal Music Malaysia, hence the concert will be a collaboration between the major label as well as the band’s very own, Bunkface Production Sdn Bhd.
Over the past 10 years, Bunkface has received various recognitions and acknowledgements including Anugerah Industri Muzik, Anugerah Juara Lagu and Shout Awards.
The band has also been nominated for the MTV Europe Music Awards (MTV EMAs) 2016 in the Best Southeast Asia Act category, competing against big music names in Malaysia including Malaysia’s very own songbird Yuna.
