Go Back to the Zoo is an Amsterdam-based band. Brothers Teun (guitar) and Cas (vocals) had been playing together since they were little kids, when one day they decided they needed a drummer. They called their friend Bram and told him the good news, and so Bram became the drummer. A while later they met a nice guy while standing in the waiting line for a Strokes concert. His name was Lars, and Cas, Teun and Bram decided that Lars should be the bass player. Lars, who had never touched a bass guitar in his life, liked the idea and started practicing like crazy. And so Go Back to the Zoo was born. 
 From that moment on they have been writing songs in a dusty old cellar (that also stored a collection of mounted animals). All across the Netherlands Go Back to the Zoo performed their songs, and all across the Netherlands the people liked it. In 2009 they released their first single Beam Me Up which was used by Nike for a worldwide campaign and after that, things went quick. Go Back to the Zoo got singed to Universal Music and ‘Beam me up’ was released officially. Their next singles 'Electric' and 'Hey Dj in 2010 became 'Megahit' on Hollands biggest pop/rock radiostation 3FM. On 13 august they released their debut-album 'Benny Blisto' and it entered the charts at number 3.
