No Party For Cao Dong (NPCD) broke into Taiwan’s indie rock scene in 2015. In February 2016, they dropped their debut album—The Servile—a record of grief, love, justice and helplessness that was felt among a generation of Taiwan’s youth, playing over rebellious electric guitars and sardonic disco grunge. Their music forms a mirror of the punk-grunge spirit they embody.
Within a month, 8 shows in 7 cities on the album’s supporting tour were sold out. Their first ever international tour—Surging, Winter MMXVI Tour—ended on a successful note as they conquered 17 cities across the US, Taiwan and China with 18 sold-out shows.
