After a hiatus that started in 2008, Malaysian R&B and hip-hop group Ruffedge is making a comeback. Their long-awaited return coincides with their 20th anniversary, and five-man outfit is scheduled to give a concert at KL Live, Kuala Lumpur, on Aug 4 to mark the occasion.

Members Cat Farish, Zain Hamid, Azan Wahab, Mode Abdullah and Sein Hussein are expected to perform their hits Khayalan, Tipah Tertipu, and Bila Rindu . In an interview with mStar, Star Media Group’s Malay-language portal, Sein shared why they were reuniting.

“For 10 years, we didn’t appear together as Ruffedge due to other work and life commitments. Now that we have the opportunity to hold a concert, we’re definitely going for it. We hope to bond with longtime fans and attract a new following at the same time,” he said.

Fans can also look forward to a new song from the group, titled Seperti Mereka.

Formed in 1997, Ruffedge is an Anugerah Industri Muzik-winning group with two hit albums Defined and Ruffera. Prior to their reunion news, Ruffedge made surprise appearances at two celebrity wedding receptions, Fazura and Shila Amzah.

Tickets to Ruffedge 20th Anniversary concert are priced from RM125 to RM233. Visit www.ticketpro.com.my for details.
