Purple Haze Underground initiate Screaming Marionette EP Launch
Winners of the 13th ICMC 2017 Screaming Marionette have released their debut EP Corrupted Society on April 28 under the banner of Purple Haze Underground, an initiative by Purple Haze Rock Bar, Thamel to support new and upcoming bands. The album lunch was supported by more prominent bands which included Vomiting Snakes and Binaash. Screaming Marionette will be touring Nepal, performing in Pokhara on May 4 at the Rolling Stones Bar, Butwal on May 5 at the Concept Bar and Chitwan on May 6.
Purple Haze Underground intends to support local underground bands with original music by having well established bands as the supporting act for the incipient bands to raise the level of underground bands. Without any commercial interest involved, these kinds of events will happen once in every two months. “Purple Haze Underground has received many mails and enquiries regarding how they can be featured in this program. For now, we will focus on bands serious enough to establish an album,” said Ashok Sen, CEO of Purple Haze Rock Bar.
