Teaming up in the steaming city of Saigon, Vietnam, the multi-national members of Brett Newski and the Corruption have recently been making inroads into the South East Asian indie scene.The band has been featured on MTV Asia, Hard Rock Cafe Live, and high profile South East Asian festivals after tours in the USA and South Africa in 2012.

The album TINY VICTORIES was recorded in Saigon, Vietnam.


PRESS:

“The band has a pleasing, accessible dynamic with appealing harmony work and some truly hook-laden melodies”
- Jan Michael Sherman, Director of Publicity, MCA Records (Ret.)

“In an era where music is being dominated by auto-tune and obsession over looking for the next big thing, the importance on the survival of true rock music is that there are bands still willing to carry the torch. Brett Newski and the Corruption are just that type of band to pin our hopes on.”- Rich Turiel, GBV.com, Guided by Voices

“Littered with tidy harmonies, innovative counter-melodies, and a clarity of production that proves that, for this trio, less is most definitely more.” -London Calling Radio

“There is one band in particular that have graced the stages of HARD ROCK CAFE that take the crowd by storm. Brett Newski & the Corruption never disappoint and never let up. They lay it all out on the stage and the audience responds.
- Chris Puchalski, Entertainment Director, Hard Rock Cafe

“An album that’s gonna be the soundtrack to many a drive with tracks that will find a home on almost every mix cd and playlist I make. It’s heartfelt with catchy hooks and endearing lyrical gems.” - DurbanIsYours.com (South Africa)

“Love the stripped-down sound, no electronic shenaniganry. Instrumentation that gives hints of The Hives, The Strokes, and The Black Keys. Overall a strong album.” -ASIALIFE Magazine

“A well-crafted album you can listen to from beginning to end. Looking forward to hearing more from them” - KindAssault Records, Manilla, Philippines

“Otra banda de esas raras que no suelo postear… pero es que hoy tengo un día rarito, así que me han gustado también estos Brett Newski & The Corruption que acaban de sacar este personalísimo disco llamado Tiny Victories. 3 canciones 5*****! -Alta Tension (Spain)

On the vanguard of Ho Chi Minh City’s original music scene, Brett Newski and the Corruption are taking some chances. They’re being themselves in front of audiences that don’t always reward that. And they’re avoiding the standard music bar set filled with greasy covers and dolled-up front men. Their positive assault on the status quo includes a new album, Tiny Victories.” -THE WORD MAGAZINE, Vietnam
