WHEATUS SUPPORTS MCBUSTED 6 JULY
How did Wheatus escape the pre-internet music industry dark age with their lives? "A very important record executive lost his cool with me in a meeting & threatened to drop us…I took him up on it…" Brendan B Brown.
Wheatus' debut single “Teenage Dirtbag” cracked the Top 40 BBC Official Sales Chart for a second time in March 2011 and then a third time in April of 2012, over a decade after it's debut at #2 on the same chart. To say that Wheatus have been through the wringer in the decade between is the original understatement.
To date, their first record has sold more than 5 million copies worldwide. Any manager or record label would be happy to tout those stats to the press but Wheatus have remained unsigned & unmanaged for the last 9 years.
With a new lineup, Wheatus hit the road mid-decade throughout the US and UK, including the soldout UK Get Happy Tour, and their own independent University and College Tours, which once again put the band on stage in front of tens of thousands of fans, who sing along....loudly. They've been back to the UK & EU several times since returning to the BBC Official Top 40 in 2011 & 2012 & 2013 enjoying packed, sweaty houses.
