Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?







// 2009 Before it all started, for many years we were four musicians playing together, or separately in different outfits. We then got together and started gigging as WKBL, leading up to the writing and release of our first EP - recorded at Tunefork Studios with Fadi Tabbal - end of 2012 in Beirut.

// 2013 We later played at Red Bull Soundclash (musical face-off) with Mashrou' Leila, at Forum de Beyrouth. The event's producer David Gappa loved the band. We talked briefly after the concert, and developed a friendship. We went back to writing new material. (click here to watch a short clip)

// 2014 One year later, we asked David to meet us in Paris, where we were invited to record at Red Bull Studios with RBMA producer David Shaw. This is where Elvis came to life! During our stay, we played at La Boule Noire, and David Gappa invited a big management company to the showcase called "Brainstorm Music Marketing" (BMM)

We got signed that night! :):)

Back in Beirut we started preparing our Album pre-Production and Tour with BMM. Riverside Studios pitched our Album to Victor Van Vugt (producer of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Depeche Mode, Kylie Minogue, PJ Harvey etc..). Victor took on the project! (best moment of our lives bar none)

// 2015 A few months later we shot a new single from our upcoming album, Elvis.


// We also wrote a new song about Beirut, and we performed it with the Lebanese Philharmonic Orchestra, live from Martyr's Square in Downtown Beirut. (click here to watch)

// A few weeks ago, The German Cultural team in the embassy shared "Elvis" online, supported the project and we finally got our VISAS! We finished pre-production, and BMM booked our first tour (October & November) all over Germany, Austria & Switzerland. A 3-year plan for the band is in action!

We need help to make all this happen,
We knocked on Zoomaal's door
& took a decision to COUNT ON YOUR LOVE

With your support, we will be able to make that dream happen and accomplish our First Goal that will eventually pave the way for the Album Production in September in Berlin, the Second Goal that will allow us to tease the album through club tour in Germany, Austria & Switzerland during November & October, Third Goal which is launching and marketing the Album in January & the Fourth Goal which is the festival tour all of 2016 to promote the Album all over the Middle-East, Europe, and the World.

All the love to ZOOMAAL that have opened up their doors for us and you lovely people for supporting us from day 1. We need YOU today to "materialize" that love by clicking on “Fund this Project”.


Finishing Album Production
All or nothing is what the First Goal is about! We need to get the full amount to be able to receive the funds! We know you will come through for us! This First goal covers what cash we still need to wrap up the album production from Recording to Mixing and Mastering.

Here's a quick look inside Riverside Studios in Berlin.


Album Recording + Europe Club Tour
After finishing the album, we need do the Album Teasing Tour. That is a club tour all over Germany, Austria & Switzerland! Out of the 40+ planned concerts, showcases and festivals, many more are on the way. We have done our homework, what’s left is for you to fund this goal so it comes to life and puts us in a tour bus & on the road ready to rock'n'roll.

More dates TBA as soon as WKBL land in Berlin.

Recording + Tour + Album Launch & Marketing
We will proceed with doing a proper Launch for the Album! The right distribution and the right showcase concerts to show it to the world! This will be accompanied by Music Video releases and a lots of other session shows, blog posts, interviews etc… So it's a legitimate international Album Launch !!



Recording + Club Tour + Launch + Promo + Album Festival Tour
Our management is in talks with big festivals in Europe for booking throughout Europe for 2016 in order to heavily promote the Album! This also includes the Middle Eastern tour to promote the album in our region as well! And again, your love is what will take us there! So promote and fund all you can because we are ready to make all this happen!
