An Honest Mistake

No other band is as representative of Malaysia’s rising indie scene as An Honest Mistake- inventive, energetic, enthusiastic, and colorful. 

Band members are wearing PeterSaysDenim apparels.

The pop-punk/easycore sextet have been making waves for the past two years with their mix of addictive pop-punk with swirls of frenetic screamo, and with a second album already in the works, their domination of your eardrums is set to continue in 2011 and beyond. 

Band members are wearing PeterSaysDenim apparels.

Comprised of Darren Teh, Kevin ‘Cottie’ Tan, Sheryl Goh, Danny New, Leonard Chua, and their newly minted, drummer Jone Yeoh, An Honest Mistake has evolved beyond its roots in acoustic emo to full-on easycore. With the departure of Kevin Theng in early 2011, the band is set to start on a brand new slate with Jone’s Lewis Pragasam-trained hands pounding the skins.

Already holding the VIMA 2010 Best College Act award, An Honest Mistake’s 7-track self-titled debut album has created hits like ‘I Have A Hole in My Skinnies, And That’s How We Roll’, which charted on the MET10 and contantly plays on Traxxfm and FlyFM, becoming one of their signature sing-along’s that’s instantly recognizable due to an awesome Roy Ajong-directed music video. 

Juxtaposed directly with their affective ‘The Snake With Limbs’ (which also has a music video on the way!) and ‘I’m Down With You If You’re Down With It’, a 7-track album may not sound like much to the untrained ear, but AHM manage to address an entire spectrum of emotions and situations into one neat purple package.

With their loyal army of Dino Warriors behind them, An Honest Mistake are here to prove the sky’s the limit for Malaysian music and AHM are leading the pack! 

rawr - fear me, I'm a dino-saur. 

Do catch them performing this coming Saturday, 15th October 2011, 8pm at Sunway Pyramid mall for event; This Is Street Clash 2011: Game of Skate by Converse Malaysia .

The band will also be performing for PeterSaysDenim: Invasion Tour this 30th October 2011.
