CMR band started as a trio from Novo mesto/Slovenia. A few months after the first song was released, bassist Nejc Godec joined the band and on the 4th of December 2015, the band officially went public with their first show. In 2017 they released their third single Same Fools, recorded a video, and some homemade demo EP, for promotional purposes. Soon after that, they had to say goodbye to Alex... Sigi joined CMR bringing with him some fresh bluesy vibes to our recordings. In 2018 CMR released a video for their first »soft« song titled Say You'll Be Mine just to tease the crowd and on May 18th, released a Full length, »live video«, debut album titled Queen Of The Night. The band played almost all the main venues in Slovenia and had some great gigs in Europe. In 2019 Sigi had to quit the band and so a true maniac on a guitar – Johnny joined CMR. The first single released with Johnny on guitar (My Worst Enemy) was released on the 26th of April 2019 and not long after that, we welcomed CMR badass drummer Klemen Krajnc to the band.
Then it happened, RTR Records came into contact with us after discovering our potential. Before we knew it, we were picking up the RTR Records staff at the airport and spent a weekend reviewing our goals and renewing a completely new vision of our success. After hours of meetings and several if not hundreds of beers and some excellent Sarma, we were offered a contract. RTR RECORDS proved their motto to us OLD SCHOOL~No BULLSHIT by leveling a fair and long term contract. On that day we said goodbye to Captain Morgan's Revenge, we set our eyes on the future and decided to go back to our roots.
