Though they hail from the island of Crete, the band’s roots reach much further – to the USA, Poland, South Africa and beyond – and their sound owes more to Green Day and Fall Out Boy than it does Zorba the Greek.
Since CORETHEBAND was formed by front man Jacob Gale in 2012, along with Lefteris guitarist, bass player Sifis (affectionately called God) and Artemis on keys, they have built a strong following throughout Greece and abroad. Their first EP ‘40% Vol’ was released December 2015 with their latest EP ‘The Waiting Game’ hitting iTunes April earlier this year. The boys are currently in Berlin until the end of November recording their first full album.
They have played over 150 live shows, won a slew of Greek and international awards, and appeared on series, ads and talk shows on international TV and have previously worked with renowned director Vangelis Kalaitzis on the video for their song “Dream”, which was also used as the soundtrack to an ad aired on international TV for the Drug Rehabilitation Centre KE.THE.A.
