It was last year when Pepsi Battle of the bands returned after a long 15 year gap. Its first season kicked off in 2002. And it was fruit full of Pakistani music scene. Bands like EP and Aaroh were discovered thanks to it and same goes for second season, new music stars were born in Pakistan as we came to know about bands like “Kashmir” and “Badnaam”. So there is a little more wait as the third season goes on air and we find the new crown prince for Pakistani pop music.
