3 Missed Calls was formed in October 2008 with the three members back then, as students in college in a music club, learning and playing music together.
They were in the studio jamming and when they came out ,they saw 3 missed calls on each of their phones, therefore the band was named "3 Missed Calls".
They had big dreams and wanted to share their music with everyone.
Starting off by performing at gigs such as Paul’s place and cafes around Setia Wangsa, 3 Missed Calls then recorded their very first single titled “Nasi Lemak” in a little recording studio in Penang.
As students back then, they never had much money. Their instruments were basic – a guitar ( with a ZOOM distort paddle ) , a bass and drums. They even had to borrow music instruments from friends who had better instruments for recordings and shows.
After two years of constant weekend gigs and shows, the band was selected for the RTM FIFA WORLD CUP tour that included a handful of Malaysian artists such as One Nation MC, Bunkface , Bottlecap and many more, where they traveled around Malaysia to showcase channels which show the live telecast of the Fifa World Cup.
At the peak of 3MC’s journey as artists, the band's drummer quit due to personal reasons and 3 Missed Calls was no longer performing or recording.
8 years passed, and finally in 2018, 3 Missed Calls’ vocalist and bassist decided to continue their journey as musicians and continue from where they left off.
Along the way, they found 2 new members – a new drummer and lead guitarist. These four members have decided to bring 3 Missed Calls back into the music scene.
The band now consists of four members – Rudy (frontman, lead singer, and guitarist), AJ (bassist), Zack (lead guitarist) and Shaun (drummer), all of who have daily jobs but continue to pursue their passion for music.
Playing at small shows and more, 3MC saved enough money from their shows and used it to re-record “Nasi Lemak and a new single titled “Gaji Sikit”.
“We write Malaysian music for the people, about the people and their day to day lives,” the band’s frontman Rudy shared. “We are here not only to create tunes, but also to create a bridge of understanding through music which every Malaysian can relate to.”
