Some of the songs included in “Araw Roas Tagpuan” are “Tambay” – an original song written by the band’s front-man Yael Yuzon, which was peaked at number one on Myx and various radio stations and was the only OPM song on magic 89.9’s countdown for several weeks; “Regal” which is the CD’s current carrier single; “Walang Wakas” which was also the theme song of ABS-CBN’s series Wansapanatym: Rod Santiago’s Buhawi Jack which starred Gerald Anderson; an upcoming single titled “Kay Tagal Kitang Hinintay;” “Araw Oras Tagpuan;” “Warning” which features drummer Tedmark Cruz on vocals; and “New Steel” featuring Salamain vocalist Paolo Valenciano. The CD also features guest vocals from Norma Love, Iwa Motors, and MowMow.
Majority of the songs in this CD are written by Yael Yuzon and it should be noted that this is the band’s first full-length studio recording with their new drummer Tedmark Cruz. Araw Oras Tagpuan is an innovative album that blends fresh ideas by incorporating piano as performed by Yael Yuzon, drum loops, and synths while retaining the trademark sound of Sponge Cola which endeared the band to its loyal fans and music aficionados as well!

Araw Oras Tagpuan will be released in all leading record bars nationwide on the first week of September.

Interesting to know that they are more mainstream sounding now...

Thanks for posting this! We released our first independent EP 2003, and our first album 2004 which was merely distributed by Sony Music. So there, clarification lang. Mainstream sounding? Does the mainstream have a sound? I always thought it was more of a movement than anything.

I noticed that you had this released first compared to the other bloggers who attended just recently. How do you get priority invites?
