About BandXUSA - Information for a changing world

In 1999 BandX, formerly known as Shanti, started producing music.
They forged on a completely new direction, going from synth-pop to techno electronic music. The band decided to take on this new style after their two original members, Chris Milas and Asif Chowdhury, went their separate ways. Asif remained in Chicago while Chris sought other opportunities back in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It was at that very point when Asif formed the band to gain its own unique techno-electronic twist. Soon thereafter, all musical compositions and lyrics were written, produced, and performed by him. From September of 1999 through December of 2000 BandX went into the studio and put out 11 great pieces. They placed it on many free MP3 sites to see how well they'd be accepted. in Early 2004 Asif Chowdhury Stepped back into the Studio with a re-energized sense after the 2003 EP "Marks the Spot". This was a mediocre attempt by the band, but plans were already forming for a resurgence album. Thus "11R6" came to fruition. The pieces were set, and "11R6" was released in April of 2005 to an online audience. In 2008 BandX released its creation: "Planet". Following a very successful release with "11R6", "Planet" did it again with techno break beats and Trance rhythms to raise the bar for BandX music. It was now a very polished sound. By the end of 2009 Asif had an idea to write an album in tribute to on of his favorite television shows: Doctor Who. He started in April of the following year after making a move down to Dallas, TX. One by one the songs started falling into place. By the end of October of 2010 he had a winning album ready for production. In the Summer of 2011 Who was picked up by the Tate Music Group from Oklahoma. It was the next step in the evolution of the band. In 2015 BandX put out LCD a brooding, serious album about addiction to the digital screen. It went. A year and half later the band decided to come right back with a happier sister album: LED. A much more tongue-in-cheek look at "Life in the so called 'Information Age'". The band really enjoyed making this one and popularity for the band continued to rise. A year and a half later in 2017, the band got back into the studio and put together what most would consider, their opus: The Change was put together with an even more polished sound and extremely strong lyrics. This one set a new bar for BandX to beat. An attempt at a Tribute album to Depeche Mode called Outmoded was made a year after the release of their previous album, however it was never released. And so comes a new decade with a new style and a new album. Older has just been put together and the band are ecstatic! String lyrics, powerful sounds, and completely polished production make this a treat for any BandXUSAfan. Oh yeah BandX is now BandXUSA due to a long fought, and eventual surrender to another band called BandX. Search results on streaming services were being polluted so the band renamed itself after its website: BandXUSA. With that and the drop of CDBaby's online store, the band has decided to go full on freeware. We never really cared about revenue anyway, just wanted to share the music, and we're always here to produce more. Thanks for being a fan, and please keep returning.
