In March 2006, Bunkface won the first place for the Battle of the Bands competition organized by the Rhythm Of The Third World (ROTTW), a Malaysian music magazine. Bunkface got their first magazine feature through this,[4] and later on was approached by, a Malaysian online music community, who offered them to sponsor a video clip for them. It was only in late 2006 when they participated in the hit TV show Blastoff that they finally caught the attention of the public.
In December 2007, Bunkface released their first EP titled "Lesson of the Season", featuring 6 English tracks, mixing a pop-punk/alternative rock sound. The hit song "Silly Lily" was number 1 on's Malaysian Top Ten for 8 weeks and number 1 on's Campur Chart for 10 weeks. Bunkface's first Malay single Situasi stormed to number 1 on XFresh FM and steadily stayed at number 3 on Era FM for 3 weeks.

Bunkface won the Rockstar, Break Out as well as the The Ultimate Shout! Award in the inaugural Shout! Awards which was organized by 8TV and held for the first time at the Stadium Bukit Jalil.
 Bunkface has joined the Everyone Connects campaign by TMNet and sung the song Through My Window which was used in the campaign's television advertisement.
The song even attracted a large crowd to a public sing-along at Jalan Bukit Bintang which also became the largest sing-along event in Malaysia.

Their achievements at the awards drew the interests of the organizers of the One Movement For Music Perth (OMFM), who subsequently invited them to perform at the festival which was held on the 16th to the 18th of October, 2009. This marked their first time performing overseas in Australia.
