More than a week after the release of their new album Sweet High, Krezip received a golden record. The album is the first to release the band after deciding to break up ten years ago.
Krezip received the golden record during the recording of the radio program Muziekcafé on NPO Radio 2.
Singer Jacqueline Govaert had not seen the golden record, which is awarded when more than 20,000 copies were sold, coming. "We are still in the rush of the sold-out concerts last weekend, that the album turned gold so quickly is really incredible and a wonderful icing on the cake," says the lead singer.
Krezip launched Sweet High last Thursday during their first show in the Amsterdam Ziggo Dome. The CD contains ten songs, including the hits Lost Without You and How Would You Feel .
Band announced reunion early this year
Krezip was founded in the late 1990s and scored hits such as I Would Stay and Sweet Goodbyes . The band's last performance before their return took place in 2009 at the Heineken Music Hall (now AFAS Live).
After ten years, the six could be seen again at the fiftieth edition of Pinkpop. The band broke through thanks to a show at Pinkpop in 2000 to a larger audience.
At the beginning of this year, Krezip announced that he would once again enter the stage. "This year all numbers fall into place," the band said. "It has been ten years since Krezip stopped and Pinkpop has been around for fifty years. A reunion was never an option until one day we woke up and suddenly it was the only option."
