After the sold-out Transcendence 20-Year Concert at Malawati Stadium, Shah Alam on November 2 2019, Butterfingers is back once again. The revered rock band will be bringing their Malayneum 23 Concert at Malawati Stadium, Shah Alam on October 7 this year.

Among the main driving forces of the Butterfingers group, LoQue or Khairil Ridzwan Annuar, stated that “This idea had been lingering in my mind since shortly after the success of the Transcendence 20 Concert, but was hindered due to the world being hit by a pandemic for several years. Therefore, the year 2023 is seen as favourable weather for us to finally carry it out.”
“Butterfingers believes that all of our listeners and cult followers will always crave live performances from us. We also believe that the chemical reactions we channel when the four of us clash on stage since post-Transcendence 20 will evoke that sense of nostalgia and create new memories not just for the audience, but for us band members too.”
Initially released in 2001, Malayneum marked a major milestone in Butterfingers’ recording career, with this fourth album seen as a maturation of their sound. Malayneum added more Malaysian-infused elements like sampling P. Ramlee’s vocals, and the inclusion of strings and horns into their rock sound.
Lead singer Emmett Roslan had this to say: “This comeback for me is pretty neat, it’s going to be the first show that I will be playing the guitars, and I am looking forward to that. It’s nice that the band is playing together a little more as opposed to just putting the band ready, and putting my vocals on top of that which we did for the Transcendence 20.”
