CUB SCOUTS HIT #3 MOST ADDED IN US
Brisbane’s Cub Scouts have had a cheerful start to their festive season with news that their EP “Told You So” is this week’s #3 most added to US college radio, beating new releases from the likes of Nick Cave, Kate Nash and Metz.
In just its first week at radio, the EP has been added to over 63 stations across the country including stations like Seattle’s KEXP and Boston’s WZBC and has also debuted at #8 on the FMBQ Specialty Radio rock album charts with spins on stations like LA’s legendary KROQ.
“Dan brought his new kitten Tibby to rehearsal on Tuesday and he was so cute. And now this!” said vocalist Tim Nelson. “This could be the best week of the year so far!”
The band’s latest single “Told You So” is currently spinning on triple j, FBI, Radar and a range of other stations around Australia with the band kicking off a national tour in Brisbane tomorrow night before heading to Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.
“US college radio is a fantastic entry point for Australian bands, but it’s rare that something will connect this quickly,” said Stephen Green, MD of the band’s marketing company SGC Media “It shows that an indie band like Cub Scouts with no label and self-managed can get a long way with great songs that connect and a solid marketing plan. It sets us up for a very strong 2013“
