Kyoto Protocol release rockumentary and live album to mark tenth anniversary

Relive the Malaysian rockers' anniversary show at The Bee, Publika

Malaysian rock band Kyoto Protocol have released a rockumentary and live album, both titled TEN, to mark their tenth anniversary.

The 96-minute-long film was uploaded on the band’s YouTube channel on Thursday (December 10) evening. It captures the concert they played at The Bee, Publika last year to mark a decade as a band, and also interview footage shot at the band’s own Kyoto Studios.

The lack of shows in 2020 prompted Kyoto Protocol to release TEN. “The performance itself was a state of euphoria, given that it’s already been a year later where unfortunately the world of live music has sort of collapsed,” frontman Fuad Alhabshi said in a press release.

“It’s nice to be able to look back on the performance and provide our thoughts, feelings on it while also recapping ten wonderful years as a band.”

The rockumentary was shot and edited by Denhouse & Co, which previously produced music videos for their songs ‘Now You’re Gone’ and ‘Guilty Plea’.

Kyoto Protocol also dropped a 20-track album of the same name the following day (December 11). It captures audio from the same Bee, Publika set, and features the band’s hit songs and fan favourites, including ‘Jelita’, ‘Tiada Lagi Kidungmu’, ‘Delta Wing’, and ‘The End’.

In October, Kyoto Protocol covered Linkin Park’s ‘In The End’ with Trophy Knives’ Vinesh Muniandy and DJ Yang Yang to mark the 20th anniversary of the nu metal band’s debut album ‘Hybrid Theory’.

Kyoto Protocol’s last full-length album was ‘The Pen Is Mightier’, their second record released 2018.
