Watch out Rihanna! Any Given Day are the real Diamond

Any Given Day

Although hailing from Germany, the band is living the American dream. Formed in 2012, Any Given Day became known in 2013 through YouTube with Rihanna’s cover, Diamonds, reaching more than 10 million views.

In their third and latest album “Overpower,” we can appreciate a great balance between brutality and catchy melodies. If this is the first time you’ve heard about them, I recommend you to make your first contact from this point.

Hit song:

Any Given Day has toured with great bands like Bury TomorrowTrivium or Suicide Silence.

CrazyEightyEight, great independent band born in Youtube


When Canadian singer Lauren Babic and American music comedian Jarrod Alonge get together, this amazing project comes alive… CrazyEightyEight.

Jarrod Alonge, known for his music comedy channel on YouTube, began writing songs in parallel. For a long time, he was looking for singers to close the circle as a composer. Finally, in 2016 he contacted with the singer Lauren Babic (Red Handed Denial), where they both agreed on styles to be able to carry out CrazyEightyEighty. Later Patty Walters joined the band.

Hit song:

Besides this first album, “Burning Alive“, I recommend you to take a look at their two covers EPs, I’m sure you’ll find very interesting songs like The Sound (The 1975), When Your Were Young (The Killers), The Kill (30 Seconds to Mars) or Duality (Slipknot).

C88 is an independent band, whose funds have been and are raised through the Kickstarter platform.
