TEAM ME release EP

If you believe bloggers and journalists all around the world, Team Me are one of the hottest newcomers of 2011. And it all started out as an accidental success when Marius D. Hagen and his private, little side project Team Me ended up in the finals of NRK P3’s (Norwegian National Radio) Best New Band/Song contest. Marius quickly had to get a band together and Team Me made their live debut alongside some of Norway’s new top acts, such as Kvelertak and Blood Command at the finals at the P3 battle in January 2010. Team Me quickly became one of the most talked about new bands on the Norwegian music scene, with their unique and warm live shows, and their two singles ‘Fool’ and ‘Weathervanes and Chemicals’ which have been air played on Norwegian national radio ever since.

The band played no less than 8 Norwegian festivals during the summer of 2010, and those who were lucky enough to squeeze into the crowd to see Team Me play the smallest stage at Øya Festival could all tell that big things await. This might also be why shortly after Team Me were invited back to play next year´s Øya festival, and were one of the first bands to be picked out for by:Larm 2011; Scandinavia’s biggest industry event for music.

The band recently launched an alternative music video for ‘Weathervanes and Chemicals’ made as an online Flash based video game. The game has already been played over 500,000 times by game lovers all over the world, since the launch in the autumn of 2010. You can play the game at teammegame.com.

Team Me’s EP, released on April 4th in the UK, will be the first official release from the band, consisting of five songs recorded in Oslo and produced and mixed by by Tom McFall (REM, Bloc Party, Snow Patrol). The EP will be the first taster of a full-length album, coming in the autumn of 2011.

In February Team Me have been invited to join British Sea Power for a couple of UK shows, and will also play several other showcases in London.

In March Team Me will support The Wombats on parts of their UK tour including Hammersmith Apollo in London, ahead of a tour with them in Scandinavia. Team me are also confirmed to play The Great Escape 2011.
