Brief biography of the band…

Cassette received nominations for 3 MTN SAMA’s (South African Music Awards) in 2007 including Best Group or Duo, and walked away with Best Rock Album award for their debut album, Welcome Back To Earth. They have collaborated with local legends such as the Mahotella Queens, Zubz and Vusi Mahlasela and have opened for international artists such as Pink, Evanescence, Eagle Eye Cherry, Ronan Keating and many more.

Five major National hits have come off of their debut album, “Welcome Back To Earth” to date, including Beautiful Smile, Tracy, Sometimes (featuring the Mahotella Queens), and which reached Top 10 status on 5fm’s national Top 40 countdown. Their latest single, AI, is now on high rotation nationally in South Africa. The band has independently produced 3 music videos in the past year, two of which have occupied the number one spot on MK89’s music video charts, one that has reached the number spot on the MTV BASE World Chart Show and all three have enjoyed national television screening across the board. Their internet viral adverts for their music (and for the Cassette brand) have received more than 2 million international viewings online, with three of these having been licensed by the BBC and German national TV for flighting in the UK and Europe.

In August 2007, Cassette embarked on their second European tour for the year, (which took in 6 countries across Europe) in support of the album’s international release through RoughTrade records. Since then, the album has been released in a further 30 countries worldwide through Ryko (Warner Bros).
