PARKDRIVE launched their self-titled debut album in August, 2005. With their first single Sekedar Cerita they received an immediate warm welcome from Indonesian music lovers and the media alike. Sales hit 3,000 copies in just three months - quite impressive for a release on an indie label.
Although the group had never performed live prior to their first release, just five days after they finished producing their video clip, they were made MTV's Exclusive Artist of August, 2005. Aside from generous airplay on MTV, they appeared on some the network's other exclusive shows and interviews.
