The launch took place at the quaint and charismatic, Amuse Cafe on Friday 15th March 2013, to a bustling crowd of fans, supporters, family and media. Beloved's debut video for their first single "Sold me" was played to a large audience at the venue, and the band were delighted to receive much praise and applause. "We're so proud of what we've achieved in a year, and although we have far to go, the journey is going to be amazing" said Michelle Rieder, guitarist for the band. The video was produced, directed and edited by Sandra Vieira of rundontwalk productions, in association with Hybrid Entertainment SA and Mash Media.

“With just 38 days until they embark on their first ever trip out of Johannesburg as a band, Beloved are hard at work at compiling their best set list, and performing new material to local audiences ahead of their trip.

“MusicReview BattleVote SA review - Beloved is a grunge / alt rock band from Johannesburg. Their music is heavily influenced by the nineties and there is something very ‘moreish’ about listening to it. Unlike how many people would state that Soundgarden’s early material is difficult to listen to, there is something very accessible and easy about Beloved’s music. There’s a certain sense of charm to this band and it comes through in their music. Beloved are the underdogs in this battle, and have nominated their track ‘Sold Me’. To vote go to http://www.musicreview.co.za/2013/06/26/battlevote-sa-round-1-match-8-beloved-vs-crashcarburn/ Voting ends 9am (South Africa) on Friday 28th June 2013”

“Beloved will be in studio at Anti-Motion Studios, with engineer and producer David Grevler this weekend, to record their 4-track EP (Extended Play). The EP is planned to demonstrate the versatility in their sound, boasting the re-release of their demo "Sold me" as the first single, and three tracks loosely classed as being "heavier" and "most commercial", respectively. The band are currently hosting a competition for fans to design their album artwork for both online stores and CD inserts.
