The band came to be after the break-up of Gerdus and Buckle's previous band, Sondag Sensasie. A week after the split the two joined up with Teejay and Odendaal to form what is now known as New Holland. This was March of 2007. Their debut performance was at the Groot Gees Rock Fees II in Stilbaai, where they wowed the crowd with an explosive sound and addictive hooks. The show was part of a tour known as Die MK Tweede Avontoer, a DPK-initiative. After the very successful tour the band was signed onto DPK management and has since played extensively.
