Electric Callboy receives Gold Award and releases live video for “Hypa Hypa”

Author Hernan Osuna - 17.3.2023

After the release of their internationally successful album, “Tekkno”, German electronicore metallers Electric Callboy have now been awarded with a Gold Award for 200,000 sold units for the single “Hypa Hypa“. This song was the starting point of a new chapter in the band’s history, followed by the #1 chart album “Tekkno” and sold out shows around the globe.

As a thank you, Electric Callboy released a live video “Hypa Hypa (Lanxess Arena 2023)” last week from their recently sold-out show in Cologne. You can watch it below:

The band comments as follows:“What an unforgettable experience we had in Cologne at Lanxess Arena! A kick ass show and a Gold Award for our single ‘Hypa Hypa’. From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank every single one of you for all your support during the last 13 years! From little youth centers to big festivals and arenas… we enjoyed every moment of this journey and we are so happy to share all this with you! Because your lovely support and your motivational feedback makes all this possible in the first place! We look forward to many more shows and good times with you! Much love from Castrop-Rauxel!“

Dennis Moll (A&R Century Media) furthers adds: “When we’ve had our first meeting back in February 2020 it was full of doubt and insecurity of how the next steps are going to look like. And all of a sudden, we’re able to present them a Gold Award at a sold-out arena show. I think there is barley any band that has worked harder and has grown bigger during a pandemic and therefore no other ones that have deserved this more than they do. Congrats guys – the rainbow in the sky is the limit!! Let’s fuckin go!!”

Furthermore, the German shooting stars were nominated in 3 categories at this year’s Heavy Music Awards. Best International Artist, Best International Live Artist and Best Video. The awards will take place on May 26th at London’s OVO Wembley Arena and you can check here for voting and more info: https://vote.heavymusicawards.com.

When Electric Callboy released “Tekkno” last year, it wasn’t clear what impact the album would have. Sold-out concerts, tearing down the biggest European festivals, millions of streams (in addition to the success of “We Got The Moves“, “Pump It” and “Spaceman” sit at 23 million and 15 million Spotify streams, respectively) – the band from Castrop-Rauxel inspires an incredible range of people.

With the Tekkno Tour 2023 now taking place in arenas around the globe (numerous international cities are already sold out!), Electric Callboy are ready for the next big step. See below for all upcoming dates.
