Band: Moneybag 1327
From: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Their formation story:
(Leo, vocals): "Moneybag officialy started in 2020 through COVID but me and my drummer Zaim have been planning the band ever since back in 2018. We were always going to shows and felt like we wanted to also be able to give back and express ourselves at the same time.

"Fast-forward to 2022, we managed to find the perfect lineup and proceeded to start writing our first album and just started grinding from there."

Their sound in their own words:
"'Heavy fight tunes.' I always loved moshing and wanted to able to make music where my friends could also be able to mosh hard with. Bands such as Laid 2 Rest, Detain, Xibalba, and Sunami really did inspire us a lot."

Latest release info:
Money. Power. Pain is our latest release, it follows through with 5 heavy-hitting songs where two of them have special features from our good friends in Wreckonize and Bleach. We started writting this EP from October, 2023 and managed to get it done in December, 2023.

"This EP means a lot to us because we wanna also be able to help put SEA on the map, theres something good bands from here and I’m blessed we apart of this great community."

Future plans:
"Besides the current release right now, we’ve got a few local shows and tours lined up at the moment. We are also gonna be on Concrete Jungle Fest with so many other great SEA bands and Kickback in June which is brought to you by Blacklisted Productions (biggest shout out to them for helping push SEA HC)."

What other bands from their region should we check out?
"Theres so many bands from SEA that I would love to share! I would say you should check out Danella, Centipede, Homicide, Rumpleskin, and No title but I’ll drop some great bands from other parts from SEA, which are Wreckonize, Bleach, Renegade, Keep it real, Limbo, Mystique, Honey, and of course, Losing End!"
