Universal Music India signs Indian rock band Indus Creed and will release their latest studio album ‘Evolve’, their first release after 1995.

‘Evolve’  recorded in Mumbai was mixed in Austin, Texas by Grammy-nominated mixing engineer Tim Palmer and was mastered in New York City by veteran mastering engineer Andy VanDette.

Universal Music India & SAARC MD Devraj Sanyal said, “I was a rock machine fan from the year they started and was their front row head banger before I formed my own band Brahma and shared the stage with them for almost 2 decades and continue to do so. So for me this is surreal. Indus Creed are the flag bearers of `original’ rock music in India and they define what good rock music needs to be – lyrically, musically and vocally. `Evolve’ is an album that ranks far above any of their earlier stuff and new songs like “Fireflies”, “The Money” and “Take It Harder” are destined to go beyond our shores very soon simply because it’s the best music I’ve heard in a long time. And we at Universal Music India are committed to roll out a red carpet marketing plan for this album besides we will endeavor to use the might of the Universal Music global network to take this album across boundaries”.

Speaking about the tie-up Benegal said, “This has been a labour of love and blood, sweat, tears and more for us. We’re thrilled to be putting out an album together after all these years, and with the collaborations of such phenomenal talent like Tim Palmer and Andy VanDette. We are also very happy to be releasing it through Universal Music, who really seem to get our music. We couldn’t have asked for better partners all around.”

Indus Creed consists of Uday Benegal (vocal, guitars), Mahesh Tinaikar (guitars), Zubin Balaporia (keyboards), Rushad Mistry (bass), Jai Row Kavi (drums).

The award-winning band has numerous historic achievements, one of the highlights being their jam with GN’R guitar player Slash at the launch of MTV India. They are also the first Indian act for whom MTV produced a `Rockumentary’.

The album is slated to release in physical and digital formats later this month.
