Indus Creed released Evolve, their first album in 17 years
Indus Creed is a rock band from India. The band was formed by Uday Benegal in 1993. The band members are Mark Selwyn, Mahesh Tinaikar, Zubin Balaporia and Jayesh Gandhi.
Indus Creed was originally known as Rock Machine. The band is currently based in Mumbai. Indus Creed was one of the earliest bands in India to tour the country extensively, performing at colleges and independently promoted rock festivals. Bucking the country’s covers-only trend, the band soon began to write and perform their songs by themselves. The band’s original tunes soon began to gain increasing popularity.
On this day in music, Indus Creed released their first album called ‘Evolve’ in 17 years with Universal Music. Featuring eight songs, the album has been produced by Indus Creed, mixed by Grammy-nominated mixing engineer Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, Robert Plant, Ozzy Osbourne, U2, Tears for Fears, Porcupine Tree) and mastered by veteran mastering engineer Andy VanDette (Rush, Beastie Boys and Porcupine Tree). Indus Creed was also featured on the cover of a number of magazines, including Rolling Stone India's February 2012 issue.
Indus Creed also was a winner at the Jack Daniel's JD Rock Awards 2013 held at the historic Mehboob Studios in Mumbai, India, taking home Best Band, Best Keyboardist and Best Drummer trophies for their album Evolve. They had been nominated in 7 categories, including Best Album, Best Song, Best Vocalist and Best Guitarist.
