Rockboy - Whatever Happen...

Not sure how many people know about this but a while back, Pontus and Marcus W announced that they would be joining forces with a UK rapper named Lyracis to form a Hip-Rock band called Rockboy.

Pontus had appeared in one of Lyracis' song's called 'Speakerphone' to provide Guitars and Synths - https://youtube.com/watch?v=Vn... - so we already kind of had an idea as to what the band might sound like. Lyracis/Rockboy also then started to appear in the support sections of DBA shows.

After a few trailers featuring their upcoming songs, they released only 3 of them to the public as full versions - 'Everest', 'Let's Ride' and 'Trashmusic'. It then transpired that Pontus and Marcus wouldn't be permanent members of the band and that they would provide some instrumentals/synths still. Rockboy became a duo.

But since then, no-one has heard anything about the project, nothing on Twitter, nothing on the website. I guess it just kind of bombed.

I would like to know what happened but I have a good feeling that this project is dead and gone, at the very least for now. Anyway, feel free to discuss the topic here or add your own input to this (apologies if anything is inaccurate at all, I wrote this mostly from my memory and understanding).

To be honest, I don't have links to download these songs, the website now leads to a shoe selling website. You can see a lot of promotional stuff for it on Lyracis' twitter page but there doesn't seem to be much else left: https://twitter.com/lyracis...

You can listen to some of the songs below on YouTube - what you do with these links afterwards is entirely up to you ;)

We Everest - https://youtube.com/watch?v=dp...
Speakerphone - https://youtube.com/watch?v=Vn...

As for 'This is Trashmusic' and 'Let's Ride'. If I can't find the official links still, I might make them available via MP3. I'm pretty sure that since the project seems discontinued and they were free downloads, and that most of the official stuff is not available anymore, I would be allowed to do this.

You're welcome. Didn't think it would matter me doing so since you can't really get them anywhere else at all.
