In 2008. S.A.R.S., Sajsi, Rekontra & Institut were chosen by Diskomer (Studio B’s music show on radio), to play live at Akademija on their Pravo sa Diskomera gig.
Group received the award for musical discovery in 2008. from TV Metropolis, and won two more awards for the debut band & best single in 2008. from the Internet magazine Popboks by their online public voting polls.
However, only two months later, Popboks review of the album was heavily criticizing, calling it: “Thin layer of simpleton humor and cheaper formal experimentation, smeared over a thick piece of nothing”.
S.A.R.S. released their album for PGP RTS in March 2009. Producer was Đorđe Miljenović (better known under his hip-hop alter ego Wikluh Sky) and there were many guest musicians on the record: Nemanja Kojić (Eyesburn), Aleksandar Sedlar (IQ), Nikola Demonja (Havana whisper) etc.
At the same time with the albums release, animated video came out for the song ‘’Buđav Lebac’‘, animation was done by Serbian illustrator Aleksa Gajić.
During 2009. came a change in the bands line up, also songs ‘’Ana’‘, ‘’Sindrom Lidera Male Stranke’’ & ‘’Đuričko’’ were omitted from the future repertoire, because the band members which left the band have rights to them.
New line up of the band had it’s first live debut at Belgrade’s Letnji Festival which was held at SKC garden. They shared stage with Kanda Kodža i Nebojša, 357, Pero Defformero & Consecration.
On 1st August 2009. band held a promo concert for their new video ‘’Debeli Lad’’ at SKC Living Room, price of the ticket was only 16, 5 dinars. More than 500 hundred people attended on that concert, it was quite a success for S.A.R.S.
On October 2009, the band went on their first tour, performing at various Serbian, Croatian and Bosnian cities and towns, ended with a large concert at the Belgrade Youth Center. After the tour, the band entered the studio in order to record the material for the upcoming album. In the meantime, on March 2010, the band had a well-acclaimed performance at MTV. Also, the band had recorded the soundtrack for the TV series Može i drugačije (It May Be Different), debuted on January 2010. At midnight on December 31, 2010, the band released their second studio album, Perspektiva (Perspective), released for free digital download at the MTV Adria official website.
