Although the band’s album launch video of the single Chall Bulleya came out in September 2008, the Mekaal Hasan Band (MHB) have recently launched their album in Pakistan via The Musik Records (TMR). The record label seems to be headed for a comeback this year as they plan to release albums by other major bands, such as Overload and Karavan, this year as well.
The album launch concert took place at the Commune Artistes’ Colony in Karachi where the set had been done up to reflect an industrial look. The band performed singles off their new album which included the massively popular Jhok Ranjhan as well. Some of the other songs that they performed included Chall Bulleya, Albela, Sanwal, Waris Shah, Huns Dhun, Andholan, etc. all singles from Saptak. Their performance also included an acoustic set in which they performed three songs.
MHB is slated to tour internationally following the launch of their album. Saptak comes after a hiatus of five years from their last album, Sampooran.
