Australia’s largest and favourite travelling music festival, aka Good Things Festival, is officially returning to ignite mosh pits and more along the east coast in December with a massive line up including BRING ME THE HORIZON, TISM, DEFTONES, NOFX, The Amity Affliction, GOJIRA, Jinjer, Lacuna Coil and more!
Also joining the line up on their debut Australian tour is German metalcore party band Electric Callboy, who shot to international fame with their single “Hypa Hypa”, gaining the group a dedicated global following and storming the stages all across Europe with their infectious grooves, tongue in cheek lyrics and high energy live shows!
Aussies!….now it’s your turn to get down!!
The Everblack Podcast caught up with Kevin and Nico from Electric Callboy to chat about their early beginnings in Germany, the creative roles within the band, making their hilarious videos, Good Things Festival and more!
Watch/listen to the interview here :
When the EP “MMXX” was released in September 2020, it marked a crucial point in the career of ELECTRIC CALLBOY, with Nico Sallach (formerly To The Rats And Wolves) celebrating his debut as second frontman. In this new line-up, the carefree fun of the early days has returned.
Especially the single “Hypa Hypa” shot through the roof in record time! Meanwhile, the hit has 28 million plays at the popular streaming portals and 16 million views on YouTube – and the trend is still rising!
ELECTRIC CALLBOY have taken this sensational success as an opportunity to completely reinterpret their hit with household names within the German music scene like The Boss Hoss, Sasha, Hip Hop crew 257ers as well as DJ duo Gestört aber GeiL, We Butter The Bread With Butter and lastly Axel One.
The fact that so many renowned acts have taken up the hit shows the class of this composition, which works in all facets, and is an accolade for ELECTRIC CALLBOY, which ennobles the Castrop entertainers, despite all their shrill party attitude, as songwriters to be taken seriously.
After they have achieved pretty much everything possible with Hypa Hypa, ELECTRIC CALLBOY decided in September to move onward with something completely new and shared their recent single release “We Got The Moves” that is already on a record-breaking course as its predecessor. Over 200.000 streams within the first 24 hours, over 5 million overall streams after one month and more than 6 million video views speak for itself and prove that ELECTRIC CALLBOY are on the top of their game right now and are a force to be reckoned with.
