Though they hail from the island of Crete, the band’s roots reach much further – to the USA, Poland, South Africa and beyond – and their sound owes more to Green Day and Fall Out Boy than it does Zorba The Greek.
Playful and spontaneous on stage, they’re deadly serious and professional in the studio. Driving guitars and drums declare Indie Pop/Pop Punk influences, while the exuberant yet sometimes introspective vocals of mop-haired and oddly charismatic frontman Jacob Gale are at times reminiscent of Ed Sheeran or Coldplay.
Since CORETHEBAND was formed by Gale and drummer/backing vocalist Maxi F. Kabutz in 2012, they have built a strong following throughout Greece and abroad. They have played over 150 live shows, won a slew of Greek and international awards, and appeared on series, ads and talk shows on Greek national TV.
They worked with renowned director Vangelis Kalaitzis on the videos for their songs “Dream” and "Dress Code", the former of which was also used as the soundtrack to an ad aired on Greek national TV for the Drug Rehabilitation Centre KE.THE.A.
CORETHEBAND appeared on the award-winning Greek TV series "Η λέξη που δε λες", where they performed their songs "Dream" and "Pull The Curtain"
