Century Media Records signs Destiny Potato

Wednesday, August 1, 2012 10:29 AM PT

Official press release:

Century Media Records is happy to announce the signing of the Serbian-based band, Destiny Potato.

The band comments: "Just a few months after we officially formed the band we got an opportunity to play our first show at Euroblast 2011 where we met some boys and gals from Century Media as they came to hear/see us play. Not long after the fest we got in touch with them and after months of negotiations we are finally here and really looking forward to an amazing collaboration with all the great people in and around this label."

Officially formed in the spring of 2011, Destiny Potato mastermind, David Maxim Micic and singer Aleksandra Djelmas had been writing and recording songs together since they were 16. Maxim and Djelmas attended the same high school and both their fathers played in one of Serbia's most popular progressive rock bands, Yu Grupa.

The band is currently wrapping up the recording of their debut album, to be released via Century Media in early 2013, but have posted the following rough mix of the track, "Dark Side of You" here:

8/1/2012 12:09:42 PM
I heard this band got their name from when the female vocalist put a potato up her taco, and when she reached to take it out a bag of french fries came out instead

8/1/2012 12:12:12 PM

8/1/2012 3:15:44 PM
Cannot believe this band got signed by a label as big as Century Media. What the hell were they thinking.

8/1/2012 3:38:16 PM
Century Media just gives anyone a record contract these days.

8/1/2012 4:01:46 PM
This is truly fcking horrible.

8/1/2012 6:13:57 PM
They have a few bands on their label I like.

But really....Destiny Chugtato?

8/1/2012 6:27:22 PM
Destiny Potato - Band full of people with Down Syndrome

8/1/2012 6:46:59 PM
They got signed because the girls are hot as fck

8/1/2012 7:57:14 PM
The thing is this band will make money, regardless of whether you like them or not.

1. Hipsters like stupid sounding band names
2. Hipsters like Djent
3. Hipster guys like hot hipster girls and hipster girls like when girls are in heavy bands.

So yea, this band will make money. And the bands I like and I'm assuming the people on this site like will continue to be poor

8/1/2012 8:00:39 PM
Century Media might have stumbled on a goldmine to be honest. Just think of all the bands with dumb names that are popular in heavy music. Now think of all the Djent bands that are popular now. And finally think of all the heavy bands with hot chicks that are popular...

This band has all 3. They suck, but man are they marketable as dck
