      Silent Sanctuary tops off the rainy season with a brand-new track that’s sure to hit them feels.     “Dahilan” revolves around the phenomenon of ghosting or in a general sense, breakups. Being the third release this year, the band’s vocalist Sarkie Sarangay mentioned in an interview that they purposely released the track this August, or #AuGhost—considering it as the “ghost month”—despite having the song finished last year.   Lyrics-wise, one can really feel the confusion and the longing for closure as the track pass every second. The mixture and amazing blend of instruments and vocals perfectly packaged the song into one that’s definitely going into our default rainy-day slash hugot slash sawi playlist.   Listen to “Dahilan” here:

    A band called The Maine is on tour!     PULP Live World is proud to announce that our friends from The Maine will be returning to Manila for their first SOLO show in the country since 2012! The Maine Live in Manila 2019 is happening on September 14, 2019 at the New Frontier Theater.   Since the band’s first solo concert in 2012, also powered by PULP Live World, The Maine has consistently been playing shows for their Filipino fans. Twice they’ve been part of the Bazooka Rocks Festival (Bazooka Rocks I in 2012 and Bazooka Rocks V: A Pop Punk Weekend in 2017). In 2014, they brought their 8123 Tour to Manila, playing alongside This Century and Nick Santino, and in 2015 they shared the stage with All Time Low.   The more they came here, the more their community of Filipino fans grew. This year, following their memorable show in Manila during the Lovely Little Lonely era, The Maine are excited to play us new tunes from their best album yet.   “This is us in our most ambitious form to date. This is us at breakneck speed. This is us in a television show starring Mandy Moore. This is us, for the first time, fully realizing a vision that we had from conception to finished product. All hype aside, this is us making music, putting everything into it, and holding our heads up higher than we ever have before,” says vocalist John O’Callaghan of their latest release. Listening to tracks like “Numb Without You,” “Broken Parts,” and “My Best Habit,” it’s exciting that we will soon witness The Maine in their best era yet.   You Are OK, the Arizona crew’s seventh studio album, was released independently last March 29, 2019. Widely well-received by fans, You Are OK shot to the top of the Billboard Independent Albums Chart—a momentous first for The Maine, a band that has always been supported by a community that feels more like a family than just a fanbase. And their Filipino fans have always been part of this beautiful family.   Tickets to The Maine Live in Manila 2019, happening on September 14, 2019 at the New Frontier Theater, are priced as follows:   SUMMER SPECIAL (May 15 - May 31) | P4,000 BACK TO SCHOOL SPECIAL (June 1 - June 30) | P4,500 REGULAR/DOOR PRICE (July 1 - September 14) | P4,700     Tickets go on sale on May 15, 2019 at 10AM at TicketNet outlets and online (www.ticketnet.com.ph). Ticketing charges apply.   Manila, you are OK. And if you’re not right now, you will be soon. #YouAreOKMNL #TheMaineInManila2019

    Punk rock outfit RIOT did us a good one once again with their music video release of their cover of a Rico J. Puno classic, ‘Macho Gwapito’.      Set in a vintage-y vibe, the band definitely took us down a trip to a golden age of OPM as they rocked out and jammed to such a timeless track—not to mention their grunge looks, complete with cool eyewear, serving justice to the period they’re in.    Check out the music video here:

     LESS THAN A WEEK TO GO! Fans are excited and the anticipation is rising for Irish pop vocal group, WESTLIFE’s ‘The Twenty Tour’ in Manila. The concerts are all set to happen on July 29 and 30th at the Araneta Coliseum. The reunion tour is expected to be nostalgic, as the band will be performing their well-loved hits in Asia.

    As an international record label, Sony Music aims to pursue the representation of every music genre through discovery and honing of homegrown acts. Last July 24, the record label officially welcomed their newest roster of artists to their growing family—Ben&Ben, the vowels they orbit, Alex Bruce, syd hartha, and Nathan & Mercury.       Starting the launch was 12-year-old hiphop artist Alex Bruce, whose first single made it to the top of the local hiphop charts. Evidence to her rising name as a rapper are her guestings which recently hit more than a million views.      Following the young rapper was Sony PH’s recently signed band, the vowels they orbit. Their unique texture to songs made them eligible for chart-topping hits such as their latest single, “Selos” which made it to  #2 in Spotify Philippine’s Top 50 Viral chart.     Third to perform was Wanderband runner-up Nathan & Mercury, who debuted this year by opening for international artists such as Honne, Clairo, The Kooks, and Two Door Cinema Club during Wanderland Music Festival 2019. This experimental alternative band radiates such huge potential as they continue to experiment with various genres, not to mention an amazing vocal stretch.     Also joining in to perform is rising artist syd hartha, who recently made noise in the industry for releasing her song “ayaw” that tackles about the sensitive issue of sexual harassment and let out a significant voice regarding women empowerment. This brave and talented soul mentioned during the launch that she aims to convey messages that most artists are reluctant to step into--all as a contribution to social awakening.     Closing the launch then and there was a stunning performance by Ben&Ben, who is now considered as one of the most streamed Filipino artists of all time. This nine-piece folk rock outfit is sure to make more ears listen to them as they partner up with Sony Music to take the country by storm.     There’s really something to look forward to these coming days, especially from Sony Music. Congratulations to the whole family!     All photos taken by Trixy Gosadan.
