Hello Is This the Band

Hello, is this the band? (HITTB) band was formed in Alor Star, Kedah, in late 2007. Band members today are Diana (Vocals),Fahmy (guitar), Shahfeeq (Drums), Hidhir (bass), Shazmir (lead guitar). The band original members are Fahmy, Shahfeeq and Shazmir. The first song the band put together was now known as "Letting You Go". They recorded tw o songs without vocals in January 2008 at Subhuman Production Studio in ALor Star (now moved to Bukit Antarabangsa KL), and later set up the band's Myspace account and uploaded both songs. The band wanted to find another bandmate. The band wanted a female singer for them. So the search started.


After the two songs were uploaded to Myspace and the band started to add people and advertise about their search, the band received good responses and few people were auditioned. Hidhir later joined the band and took Shazmir's position as bassist. Shazmir then moved to lead guitar. Later the band found their singer who currently studying in her 1st year at Multimedia University, where all the band members are currently studying too. Diana or well known as Dy decided to tryout and later joined HITTB and the band was complete.


The band's name was taken from their advertisement tagline in Myspace to search for a singer. "call now, and say - hello, is this the band?". In May 2008 the band recorded another two songs, one of it was "It's Not Rocket Science, It's About Us". In December 2008, HITTB recorded their first song with Dy, with their lecturer Mr Norman. Then the band recorded another two songs with her, "It's Not Rocket Science, It's About Us" and "Secret Admirer" in early January 2009.


After the band released the songs, they received overwhelming invites to play at gigs and shows all over Malaysia. Thanks to organizers like Bodysurf Records, Gegey Music, Sovereign Records and many more, the band now has a growing fanbase all over Malaysia. In August 2009, the band signed a record deal with Malaysia's indie label from East Coast, Gegey Music and they started recording their upcoming album at JD (Pop Shuvit) 21:05 studio in TTDI in October and expected to be released by Gegey Music in February 2010.

HITTB's music can be generally regarded as Pop Punk, Emo, and Rock. The band influences ranging from Paramore, Anberlin, We The Kings and many more.
