The viral spread of Hang Massive’s first music video release, the hypnotic instrumental ‘Once Again’ (2011), generated over 60 million views online (including 19 million for the track on the band’s own YouTube channel alone) and introduced many to an amazing new instrument, the hang drum. The band’s organically nurtured global fan base includes 128,000 YouTube subscribers and 150,000 Facebook fans and continues to grow.
Hang Massive founders, Danny Cudd and Markus Offbeat, met on the shores of Goa, India where they passed the winter months enjoying the enlivening and creative vibe that flourishes there. When not touring, their time is now split between their studio bases in Goa and Bristol.
Continually experimenting and developing their unique, hypnotic composition and performance, Hang Massive blend influences from a range of electronic music genres and ethereal acoustics with their familiar hang sound and upbeat style. After two live albums, countless live shows worldwide, high profile sync placements in commercials and film, many remixes and acclaimed collaborations with various producers and DJs, Hang Massive’s first crowd-funded studio album ‘Distant Light’ was quickly over-subscribed.
The ‘Distant Light’ album now gets a fully supported release on 25th November as the band play a homecoming show in Bristol (27th November) to conclude a European tour taking in Romania, Belgium, Portugal, Netherlands, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Russia (8 shows), Slovakia, Austria, Czech Republic, Sweden and France. The tour kicked off with a sold out headline show in London on 17th September.
