    ‘Titanz’ coming back

    Izah Azahari

    After a long hiatus from making music, local pop rock band Titanz is currently working on releasing a new single in the coming year alongside Caliph Buskers Warner Music Malaysia.

    Established in 2001 as a four-piece band, its original members were guitarist and band leader Ejal, bassist Jury, drummer Bboy and vocalist Adib.

    However, after the recent passing of Adib, the band’s efforts to create music stalled as they attempted to find another individual who has the same sound and charisma. Eventually, after carrying out a number of auditions with other local singers, the band successfully found their new vocalist Leehin.

    The song they are currently working on is set to start recording in Kuala Lumpur in December and, the lyrics and song were written by Fendi and Azmi of Caliph Buskers, respectively.

    According to the band’s manager Pengiran Hamdani bin Pengiran Haji Ismail, Titanz hopes that the single will be able to capture the hearts of listeners and supporters of the band.

    “The band’s journey has not been as easy as we’d like it to be,” said the manager. “There have been many challenges that we faced in our efforts to create music that is accepted by listeners and fans of local music.”

    He highlighted that the local music arena is definitely different from what it once was, as there are not many local bands who are active now. He added that a good understanding among band members is one of the most important aspects to make it work as each member has to contribute so the quality of the music is great.

    The band plans to further expand its market taking a big leap towards the music industry in Malaysia with the help of the Caliph Busker.

    “We all had to work hard to look for sponsors, composers, and any kind of payment, and Alhamdulillah, whatever efforts we have put into came to fruition when Titanz was invited to a number of interview sessions in Malaysia by RTM and a number of private radio stations, and that got us all very excited,” said Pengiran Hamdani.

    Titanz is grateful for the strong support it has received from family in aiding the band to realise its dreams.
