Their debut album THE GEREG is out now via Eleven Seven Music and expected to be the first Mongolian band to enter the UK Top 40. Order “THE GEREG” digitally HERE and on CD or Vinyl HERE.
The album’s title, THE GEREG, takes its name from the term used for the first diplomatic “passport” issued by the Mongol Empire during the time of Genghis Khan. The Band believe this album is their passport to the world and will allow them to travel sharing their music. The USA and forth coming UK and European tour dates will give them a chance to have their ‘Gereg’ stamped in many countries.
THE GEREG contains viral sensations “Yuve Yuve Yu” and “Wolf Totem” which have racked up over 40 million views to date! It also has hits including newly released track “The Great Chinggis Khaan” (click HERE to view) about the story of Chinggis Khaan as he is portrayed in Mongolian culture – an inventor and a founding father of the country, rather than the worldly view of him as a warrior and conqueror – and live favourite “Shoog Shoog”. On Friday, Spotify featured “The Legend of Mother Swan” in many prominent playlists including, New Music Friday (UK), All New Rock and the Epic & Melodic Playlists.
