It has been a year to the day since Siddharta released their third studio album 'Rh-', which was sold in both Slovenian and English versions. The latter was a limited edition and was packed in a bloodbag; it was sold out in a matter of days.
During this last year Siddharta have achieved and surpassed many an important goal and have won several awards, e.g. the Viktor award for Band of the Year, the Viktor award for Special Achievements, the Slovenian Radio Festival award (best song by the choice of radio editors: Insane) and the highest possible recognition of sales in Slovenia, the Diamond Record, for over 25,000 copies of 'Rh-' sold. The bloodbag packaging itself is not far behind on the awards list. It has won the Golden Drum Silver Drumstick and the Slovenian Advertising Festival Grand award. The Magdalena Festival awarded it the Golden Bra award for creativity. Lately it has been entered into the Cresta designer and advertising awards program shortlist of finalists.
Until now the album has produced three singles (Rave, Insane, and T.H.O.R.), which all met an outstanding response from the listeners and for which Siddharta have made videos, which have also been shown on some foreign TV stations.
The band of course is not standing still. In the next few weeks Rh-'s fourth single will swarm radio stations. A video for it has already been made and will soon be up for viewing at the band's web page www.siddharta.net.
