It was not another sunny afternoon in the city. Rain brought along uncertainty to city life. Who would want to get their clothes dirty in the muddy streets? This seemed of an issue to the members of the band.
Friday evening was the screening of Introit’s debut single Je Gaaner Kono Nam Khuje Paini at Heavy Metal T-shirt Farmgate outlet.
At the evening the picture was different; it was raining outside but inside, the small outlet of Heavy Metal was on fire. The space could hardly make room for all the audience and guests. They sang along with the music video and shook their heads with its catchy melody.
Among the guests were some renowned faces including Joy Shahriar, Milu Aman, Nomon, Mishu, Razib, Shams, Navid, Shakib Anis,Rumon, Samin, Ishmam, Al Amin, Shuddho, Shafawat.

This overwhelming response on such a dull evening left the band members wondered. Shahan Kamal Uday, the vocalist of Introit said, “I never thought this song would become so popular through our live performances that the audience would sing along the whole song today. Some of our fans have already set the song’s melody line as their cell phone ringtone. I wish this evening; this night never ends.”
The guests were also surprised to see such presence of Introit fans and followers, Nomon and Shams agreed that it was the band’s debut music video screening but it felt like an album launching with such a crowd.
Joy Shahriar mentioned the song’s catchy melody that people would love to listen to. He wanted the band to be regular at the scene and advised Introit members to stick together for years making more wonderful songs.
