I don't know where I was the past years that I didn't know Sponge Cola has a Diamond Selling Album 'Araw Oras Tagpuan'. Yes I heard they're music way back but I didn't know it was that large & loud.
Recently they released an extended play album under Universal Records. A week after its release it lorded over Odyssey Music Charts while the launch of the album at Eastwood Central Plaza was full packed. They must have a lot of followers & lovers of their music.
Composed of Vocalist Yael Yuzon, Guitarist erwin Armovit, Bassist Gosh Dilay and Drummer Tedmark Cruz, I met Sponge Cola at the BlogCon of their album at Universal Tower last November 27, 2012. Yael is just too smart and talkative for me. Hahaha. He's admirable and with sense.
The Sponge Cola's District EP highlights the versatility of the band as performers, musicians and songwriters. It also features collaborations between Sponge Cola and some of the respected names in the music industry. The Album is called District becoz it represents a fraction of a bigger whole which what Extended Play means said Yael during the Blogcon.
Just last year, Sponge Cola had sold-out performances all over Asia and the Middle East. They also represented the Philippines in the Du world Music Festival in Dubai. Their performance at Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis was much talked about that made them the only Filipino Band to be featured alongside AI Green, Evanescence and Pitt Bull.
The Album is now available nationwide in all record stores as well as for download at www.mymusicstore.com.ph and on iTunes. The tracks in the album are:
1. Mahaba Pa Ang Gabi
2. Pick Your Poison
5. It's About You Girl
