About TV Buddhas

“TV Buddhas are a band that I liked the instant I heard them… This band is one lucky break away from breaking away.” - Ben Donnelly, Dusted Magazine

Originally based in Tel Aviv, but now located in Berlin, the three-piece rock band know as TV Buddhas will Americanize themselves over the course of a non-stop six-week tour of the US this Fall. The band will be supporting a new EP on the We Are Busy Bodies label. The band recently made the “Let Me Sleep” (MP3) single available and now present the “Fun Girls” (MP3 | VIDEO) for your pleasure.

TV Buddhas consists of brother and sister Uri and Mickey Triest, and Mickey’s husband Juval Haring. The band makes punk rock in the vein of Richard Hell, Modern Lovers and The Ramones. They bring back outsider rock and roll, straightforward lyrics and raw simple playing with heart. They started as a duo, leaving Israel around late 2007 to tour in Europe after just a month of rehearsing and three songs in their setlist.

The band grew and expanded, wrote songs and recorded on the road, on days off in between more than 400 shows to this day. As a trio, the TV Buddhas S/T EP is their first release. Recorded in their current home base of Berlin in about an hour and using just one mic and a field tape machine, the EP showcases the basic elements of TV Buddhas: minimalist drums, loose guitars and an anti social edge. Like a post modern take on Jonathan Richman mixed with The MC5.

See below for a complete list if US dates. Members of TV Buddhas are available for interviews and would love to speak with you!
