Calling Taiwanese pop punk band Fire Ex “ginormous” is actually an understatement…the band is so massive that every track released gets studied to bits.
The band has just released a brand new album boldly entitled Stand Up Like A Taiwanese – as someone from Hong Kong, we BACK this title HARD. The full album is now streaming on all major digital platforms even the one that rips off musicians below. how huge is this band in Taiwan? It just outsold Coldplay and the new Frozen soundtrack:
The band released a music video for the track 雙城記 full of videos/photos from the Hong Kong protest for which the song is widely applauded here. Sure, the song is basically a pop song, but when massive bands support any of these protests, they are risking the big RMB piggy bank. So this is much appreciated.
