And so it happened. It was partly intimate, partly nostalgic. It also felt like the four-year inactivity never happened. A little rusty yes, but nothing a few immersion in our rehearsal space can't fix. But most importantly, we had fun. Seeing old friends/fans (some of them flew to Manila), brother bands who supported, meant a lot to us. We played to a full house despite the busy December weekend. And we debuted a new guitarist (who is actually the bassist of Dragonfly Collector) to back us up, after learning my guitar stylings as well as that of Johnny Marr's with only a few weeks notice. It was indeed a wonderful evening and we are really glad to be back.
This is it folks! Our one and only gig for 2016. We are headlining The POP Shoppe on December 10 at 70s Bistro!
Sharing the stage are musician friends with past and upcoming releases under Lilystars Records including The Gentle Isolation, We Are Imaginary (formerly Your Imaginary Friends), The Bernadettes, Bing Austria & The Flippin Soul Stompers and newcomer from Dumaguete named Meagan Trees.
A lot has asked for a reissue and we are more than happy to bring you back our debut album in CD format. Take pleasure in this wonderful 8th anniversary reissue cover art illustrated and designed by Justine Basa.
This reissue will feature remastered versions of the album including the bonus track “The Sight Of Love” and is scheduled for release on December 10, 2016.

A couple of weeks after our Southeast Asian Tour in August 2012, we decided to cool-off from months of promotion and gigs that burnt-out all of us. Personally, the only time I don't consider being in a band as work is when we are creating and recording new music. It never fails to excite me. Gigging on the other hand is different, sometimes tiring, sometimes disappointing. Being an indie band in the ever-changing music industry landscape is very challenging. So I took my leave and went on a five-month vacation in the US to rest and contemplate. I encouraged my band mates to focus on their work, family and other interests.
The challege of scheduling an outdoor pictorial is the hope for a favorable weather. Unfortunately, during our sailboat shoot at the Manila Yacht Club, it rained almost non-stop the whole day.
We neither have the time nor the luxury to re-schedule so together with the photographers and the production team, we tried our luck. It was nearing dusk when the heavy rain tamed into a drizzle. We were able to get some fairly decent shots. You can check them out at the photo section of our site.
