    After weeks and days of dropping hints through photos and videos which circulated to different social media platforms, Eraserheads set to reunite for a concert.   Last Friday, September 17, members of Eraserheads Ely Buendia, Buddy Zabala, Raymund Marasigan, and Marcus Adoro - all shared images of an inverted letter "E" resembling the band's logo on their own Instagram sites.   Ely Buendia confirmed the reunion concert as the Filipino rock band announced the long-awaited event, which will take place at SMDC Festival Grounds this December 22, through a poster on each of their personal Instagram accounts today, Sept. 19. The poster makes reference to their well-known first album's cover, "Ultraelectromagneticpop! " published in 1993.   The songs "Ang Huling El Bimbo," "Magasin," "Alapaap," "Spoliarium," "Ligaya," and "Pare Ko" were among their best-known compositions.   The four rock band members came together for the first time in 1989. They performed together for more than ten years until splitting up in 2002.   They held a concert back in 2008, but it was cut short when Ely Buendia had to be taken to the hospital due to chest pains. They came back together on stage in March 2009 for their reunion performance, "The Final Set," at the Mall of Asia Concert Grounds, but pursued different paths individually after the concert.   Just then, Ely made a tease about the band's comeback last year, joking that if former Vice President Leni Robredo runs for President, the band might get back together, which is now set to happen.   The reunion concert to be held excites the fans as the tickets will be announced soon.

      Pacemaker is meant to be a heart-pumping anthem in the alternative rock, punk, and post-hardcore genres that will make the listener feel numerous emotions, such as energetic, furious, spiteful, driven, fuming, and standoffish. The song originated as a short story thought up by Raf in high school. It was about a child who had a heart condition that caused his complexion to be pale. Because of his heart issue, he needed a pacemaker to keep his heart pumping blood.   The song was inspired by the mentioned short story. It began as a personal perspective on the world at large, discussing a spectrum of subjects that one would encounter in life. It speaks about too much, and as a result, the message is lost within it all. Eventually, the persona concludes that nothing matters.   Fugu Musk is a Manila, Philippines-based alternative rock band. Raf De Los Reyes is their main vocalist and guitarist. Raph Rivera is also a vocalist and guitarist, and Ian Estanislao is their drummer and also a vocalist. It was founded in 2010 and has gone through several lineup changes since then. Loud, fuzzy guitars, boomy drumming, thundering bass, and sardonic, aggressive vocals define the band. They make music that explores themes of loneliness and transience while delivering a powerful rock punch. The band's moniker "Fugu Musk" is a pun on the film Megamind. It occurred during a scene in which the titular character said, "It's simply my natural musk," much to the chagrin of his fish sidekick. Members like card games like Yu-Gi-Oh! And Magic: the Gathering.   Pacemaker's bridge part features audio fragments from a TikTok video showing the band playing Uno. The warning noises onboard an Imperial Star Destroyer, as shown in Episode VI, influenced Raph Rivera's riff in Pacemaker.   Stay Awake, the band's 2017 EP, provides a tale that listeners must put together for themselves. The true story is still unknown.   "Pacemaker" may be pre-saved here: https://ingrv.es/pacemaker-9bf-d   Follow them on their social media platforms.

    ROW KEYS secured a contract with Rakista Records on August 31. They are also known as "sibling goals" because all the band members are from the same family.       It all started with their 22-year-old vocalist, Raffy "RAFAELLA ROUISE TOLENTINO ROQUE," who graduated from the College of the Holy Spirit with a degree in Interior Design and is a Disney Princess Segment Host and performer. She was a semi-finalist in Eat Bulaga Music Hero's Vocal Battle in 2017 and won I Can See Your Voice in 2018. In the 2021 "THE CLASH," she was an official clasher and clashback. And she was introduced in the "Feelennial" movie with the role of Bayani Agbayani's niece, the love interest of Arvic Tan, and the singer-composer of the movie's theme songs entitled "HIMALA, KASE, DATI, and FEELENNIAL."   According to ROW KEYS, they didn't realize that the universe was using their sibling Raffy to help them achieve their dreams, and now they're performing as one.   The band consists of four members: vocalist RAFAELLA ROUISE TOLENTINO ROQUE, also known as RAFFY, who used the universe to make this band happen; and their bassist, REBECCA RONNITHE TOLENTINO ROQUE, also known as "BECCA," which is the eldest of the siblings and is 24 years old. She graduated from St. Paul University Quezon City with a course in Mass Communication and worked as a Professional Event Host, Disney Princess Character Host/Performer, and Print Ad Model. She is currently connected with Federal Land and is a consistent awardee/producer.   ROSH "ROSHANNA ROSETTE TOLENTINO ROQUE," their drummer, is 17 years old and aspires to be a dentist. She learned how to play the drums by downloading an app, but she's also an excellent beatboxer. She is also a talented dancer, singer, and student. In the Disney Princess Musical Event, she also performs and sings like her older sisters.   And lastly, FELIX RAINE RAPHAEL TOLENTINO ROQUE, a 14-year-old lead guitarist and multitalented grade 10 student from EARIST High School who can sing, dance, and play bass guitar and drums, is the youngest of the siblings. He finished elementary education at Richfield Montessori but moved to a public school because of the pandemic. He began playing guitar at six and has continued to develop through constant YouTube study.   ROW KEYS are more than a band; they are a family that looks out for one another 24 hours a day. They are multitalented individuals in any line of work; students; and workers who can still pursue their dreams. According to them, manifestations exist. And you may see more of them this year!   The band is currently preparing and recording their music at Rakista Workz; you will hear and learn more about them once their new song is released. Keep an eye out for any updates!

In the Disney Princess Musical Event, she also performs and sings like her older sisters.   And lastly, FELIX RAINE RAPHAEL TOLENTINO ROQUE, a 14-year-old lead guitarist and multitalented grade 10 student from EARIST High School who can sing, dance, and play bass guitar and drums, is the youngest of the siblings. He finished elementary education at Richfield Montessori but moved to a public school because of the pandemic. He began playing guitar at six and has continued to develop through constant YouTube study.   ROW KEYS are more than a band; they are a family that looks out for one another 24 hours a day. They are multitalented individuals in any line of work; students; and workers who can still pursue their dreams. According to them, manifestations exist. And you may see more of them this year!   The band is currently preparing and recording their music at Rakista Workz; you will hear and learn more about them once their new song is released. Keep an eye out for any updates!
