THE Edralins will launch their third album this Saturday, September 8, at the 18 BC with several locals and Manila-based guest bands.
“We are proud to inform you that the much awaited independent third album,” The Edralins announced on Facebook.
The band composed of Bong Manansala on lead vocals and rhythm guitars, Jeng Nufable (lead guitar), Jowi Almoete (bass), Toper Bustos (drums) and keyboardist Janrome Galimba have recorded “Pop All You Can” in a span of two months.
The new album is a nine-track originals that include the carrier single “Ang Mundo” which the band released in April just as the world celebrated Earth Day.
It took the band years to release the single “Ang Mundo” and also the costliest. “Taon at ilang variation ang ginawa ko dito at eto rin ang pinakamagastos, daig pa ang gumawa ng isang album,” said Manansala, beaming like a proud father having seen a first born son.
The other tracks are KKK, Paalam, Di Ko Maiwasan, Ang Tunay Na Lalaki Ay Tapat Sa Babae, Di Kita Iiwan, Pangako, Anak Ng Tipaklong and Super Poli.
“We invite you to join us for the album launching on September 8 at (the) 18BC Music Lounge starting 8 p.m.” Manansala and group said.
The band is expected to hit the road to promote the new album in selected places within Luzon and Visayas area.
They are expected to play in La Union; Vigan,Ilocos Sur; Laoag,Ilocos Norte; Dagupan, Tarlac, Angeles; San Fernando, Pampanga; Bulacan, Manila, Cavite, Batangas, Bicol, Baler, Nueva Ecija and Vicaya, Isabela, Kalinga, Masbate, Cebu, Davao and Bacolod.
Pop All You Can follows the Wow Kalabaw, where the band, influenced by 80s New Wave, the 60s and 70s, explored novelty best exemplified by the carrier single, Wow Kalabaw, which, however, was dedicated for overseas Filipino workers.
