India’s front-running band for over 25 years, Indus Creed is considered the pioneers of rock music in the country. They blazed trails across India well before the advent of satellite TV into the country’s airwaves, setting the stage for today’s fertile indie scene. Their path breaking albums are still considered seminal works.

The multi-award-winning band first put India on the international rock map from the late 1980s to the late 1990s.

A few of their achievements include: Touring extensively through India, the UK and the Middle East, playing at Peter Gabriel’s WOMAD festival in Reading, UK, performing with Bon Jovi to over 40,000 people in Bombay, playing on stage with Guns ‘N’ Roses guitarist Slash for MTV India’s launch, being the first Indian band to feature on MTV, winning numerous video music awards including the Asia-wide MTV Viewers’ Choice, Award for their song “Pretty Child,” being named Best Indian Band by Channel V, being awarded VH1 India’s first ever Hall of Fame Award, being inducted into the Indian Recording Arts Academy Hall of Fame.

The band’s debut album Rock ‘n’ Roll Renegade (CBS) was the largest selling rock album in the country. Their second album, The Second Coming, spawned their hit “Pretty Child”. The third album, titled Indus Creed, was recorded in Los Angeles in 1994 and released worldwide by BMG-Crescendo.

Their video “Trapped” was nominated by Channel V for a Billboard Viewers’ Choice Award and by MTV for its Asian Viewer’s Choice Award.

Their fifth video, “Sleep”, was nominated for MTV’s Indian Viewers Choice in 1996. In 1998, Indus Creed was named Best Indian Band by Channel V.

In 1994, MTV produced a Rockumentary on Indus Creed, the first they had created on a non-Western act.

When Indus Creed regrouped in 2010, after a 13-year hiatus, they went on to carve new trails yet again, headlining festivals across the country and winning a bunch of awards, including: Best Band at the Jack Daniel’s Rock Awards in 2012, Best Rock Artist at the Radio City Freedom Awards in 2013, Vh1 India’s first ever Hall of Fame award in 2014.

In 2012, Indus Creed opened for legendary rock band Santana in Bangalore, India.
