Taiwanese rock band 831 release new album: "Survival Guide"

831 was formed by five high school classmates in the summer of 2003. They're referred to as the "Asian Simple Plan” due to their versatile music styles ranging from punk rock to pop rock, electronic, metal and hip-hop.

The band released their first album “Save the World” in 2008 with Universal Music Taiwan. After two-and-half years, their second album “The Great Escape” grabbed more attention from Asian pop fans. 831 generated a lot of local buzz after producing the opening theme song for popular Channel V program Circus Action's third season.

In December last year they released their latest album “Survival Guide.” 831 invited two Taiwanese iconic singers; Ashin of Mayday and Richie Ren to help them with one of the album's song's, “Cheers”. The band are very close to Mayday and there has been many collaborations between the two bands in the past.
