Froud sound like an American alternative rock/post-grunge band. The band started off on the right footing, signing non-exclusive publishing contract with US Licensing companies for TV, Film and Ad placement. This lead to a number of Internet radio stations featuring their songs. And lead to significant interest around Ireland, The UK & The US.
The good news became consistent when Skoepmag.com awarded them with 'Artist to Watch' receiving over 3 million hits and 500,000 unique visitors per month by music enthusiasts from all over the globe. (Previously awarded to Panic At The Disco, 50 Cent, The Dodos & Flobots).
