You hardly see Mild unkempt. As a band, they come in a pack, all dressed up in tailored suits and shiny shoes. Maybe a decade ago when they first started in the music industry, there might have been a day or two when these six guys were caught wearing T-shirts and ungelled hair.
But Bodin Charoenrat (vocals), Gent Manopiniwes (guitar), Pithawas Khunthong (bass), Thongchai Timpool (drums), Natephat Prasertmanukitch (keyboards) and Phaisit Khamklan (saxophone) have come a long way from being just a local Chiang Mai band and mere kids who never thought they would be able to make it big. But with a string of hits over the years and their recently released third album Master Peace invading all the charts, Mild has long arrived.
"The reception has been great. We released our first single from this album exactly one year ago. Lovesick is still doing very well, and we're thankful for that," said Bodin. "So far, we've released four singles preceding the release of this album. It wasn't our intention to keep putting out singles. It was just that we were touring so much, and we didn't have time to finish the album properly, but we still wanted to keep in touch with our fans, so when one song was ready, we would just unleash it."
