Here are some upcoming shows this January and February to start off the year.
First is the benefit show which was supposed to be for Dexter Bascon (who unfortunately passed away yesterday) and Allen Rubis. Come out and show some love:
Up next is the first touring band of the year. Sleeping Boy Collective presents NOTHING.
Next show up is the Mainland Connection crew opener happening at Darkside Bar:
Finally, we have back to back Sunday Matinees from Still Ill. The first Sunday is the final installment of the San Pablo City Takeover with some supporting bands and the February ends with CHOKECOCOI as the show headliner. Helll yes.
15 December 2016
Another year’s about to end. 2016 had its ups and downs, definitely.
For Still Ill matters, we started the year by releasing the Clean Slate ‘Demo 2016’ and played a bunch of shows. Led left us for greener pastures and we took some time finding a drummer but when we did, CS got rolling and we’re planning to release something for 2016.
SI co-released the reissue of the PHILIPPINE VIOLATORS ‘At Large’ LP together with some awesome labels. PV was one of the pioneer punk bands of the 80’s who managed to release an album with the defunct TWISTED RED CROSS label.
VALUE LASTS started recording their debut full-length record which is one of the really good things to look forward to 2017.
We were able to put out the VEILS ‘s/t’ 7” finally! Copies of the record are available from various labels and stores. We put out some shirts a few days ago but were immediately sold out. The VEILS shirt will be re-printed in a limited capacity so to those who were left out or otherwise were not able to get their shirts last Saturday, let us know your orders and we’ll definitely have them printed before the holiday break. Deadline for sending your orders in will be this Sunday, December 18, 2016.
Still Ill, with some help from our friends was able to put out some all-local shows and a few touring bands: NO TURNING BACK, WEEKEND NACHOS, PRIMITIVE MAN, WOLFDOWN, MAGRUDERGRIND. You all know NOTHING will be hitting our shores this January, so make sure to start the year right.
The distro/pre-order thing is still on-going and we have made it a point to order every month (the first week usually) so if you want anything, just hit us up and we’ll order it for you.
OFF THE CHAIN has likewise started recording and are on the verge of putting up the finishing touches on their record and should be available sooner rather than later. The KILL RATIO ‘Erehe’ 7” is already in the pressing plant and is another title you should definitely watch out for.
We also talked to some newer bands who are interested on being part of a compilation 7” and in one night, we were able to gather and confirm the participation of the following bands: BARRED (San Pablo City), VEILS, BADMOUTH (Las Pinas/Cavite) and xFORTRESSx (Batangas City). This one should be a banger! Labels who are interested to participate in this project, send us a message.

Some really good shows are happening in the upcoming weeks. Check it out!
First up is Wellington, New Zealand based ROGERNOMIX who will be playing a show on May 28, 2016 (Saturday) with some really good locals, EYES OF FIRE, REPUGNANT, COMMIT ARSON, among others. They have a cassette tape tour version available at the show. Php 100 gets you in fools.
Up next is CHEERIO from Tokyo, Japan who will be playing their first show at Malolos City, Bulacan on June 4, 2016. CLEAN SLATE will be part of the opening acts. First time to see them so it looks like its gonna be fun and you know Malolos City is always a fun place to play. Other locals playing include PLAY, ARMAS NG LIAS, JAHANNAM and REFUSE.
The day after, VIVISICK will make their return to our shores and absolutely destroy SELDA DOS. They toured here for what seems like a million years ago and we had the opportunity to organize a show at a resort somewhere in Bacoor, Cavite and it was pure chaos. Mud, a very slippery floor and a couple of hundred punk rockers thrown in with a crazy thrash band from Japan. Do the math. KAKTUS KARUKA will be playing this show so better check ‘em out too while you can.
Finally, we have FOUR (4) touring bands from Cebu: BOMBO PLUTO OVA, GARDO, THOUGHT and TIGER PUSSY will be playing a matinee show onJune 12, 2016 which will be happening at MOW’S at Quezon City. The line-up is crazy and promises to be a lot of fun. CLEAN SLATE will open the show so come out early and hang out with us! VALUE LASTS will also be playing along with a ton of great local acts. Doors open at 3:00 PM. Playing a day time slot is HARDCORE. :D
Also, the CLEAN SLATE demo is still available for free download. If you want a physical copy (CD-R or cassette) see the details below.

A bit late but a big thank you is in order to everyone who helped in the series of shows that happened last week: Allan Dayco and the rest of the San Pablo crew for putting up the Wolfdown show in San Pablo City on very short notice, Tim and the rest of the Sleeping Boy Collective for the WD show held at Mow’s In Quezon City which coincided with the Beast Jesus release party; for Mr. Boyet Miguel and the rest of Nonentities for the equipment used in the WD/WEEKEND NACHOS/PRIMITIVE MAN show held last Saturday; Special thanks goes out to Egg and RJ who helped in going in and out of the metro traffic for the bands. Thanks to everyone who went out for the shows. It was f’n hot as hell but it was all worth it. Hell yes.
Coming up: Some new records arriving in a week or so, catching up on practices/new songs, upcoming tours on May, June, July. See y’all.
19 February 2016
Finally got around to update this page and we got some really good stuff for you.
CLEAN SLATE will be dropping their demo this Saturday at this show happening at Back to the 90’s Bar at Tomas Morato Avenue, Quezon City. The demo contains seven (7) songs of fast 80’s hardcore. You can also download it for free at stillillhc.bandcamp.com. We’ll be pressing some copies in CD-R and cassette tape formats.
CLEAN SLATE will be opening this show!
Speaking of shows, we got not one, not two, but THREE (3) touring bands hitting up our shores in the next two (2) months. First off is NO TURNING BACK from the Netherlands. We set them up for a show happening on March 14, 2016 at Selda Dos, Quezon City.
Up next, we got WEEKEND NACHOS and PRIMITIVE MAN doing a show on April 14, 2016 also at Selda Dos, Quezon City. Check out the flyer.

2015 is about to end and it’s just about time of the year to say thanks and to look forward to some pretty good sht going down next year.
Year in Review.
2015 was a pretty good year for Still Ill and the rest of our local punk rock community. We were able to bring some pretty “good” (i.e. AWESOME) bands such as BANE, XIBALBA, THOUGHT and FULL OF HELL. Other bands that we were able to see/play with were VENGEANCE TODAY, HIEROPHANT (killer Good Friday show!), DANGERS and of course, SICK OF IT ALL. Yeah, it was a pretty good year for touring bands.
Still Ill was able to release the RANDOM VIOLENCE/VALUE LASTS split 7” with the help of some really cool friends (thanks!) and was able to do a final show with RV during the MRR show which became the RV/VL split 7” release party.
We were able to get our hands of the DEATH AFTER BIRTH/SURROGATE PREY split CD, the THOUGHT/PUSHED ASIDE split 7”, GI and the IDIOTS LP, REPUGNANT cassette, DISABUSE/COMMIT ARSON split tape, EMPTY CD, among a bunch of demos which were made available this year. 2015 was a good year for vinyl/cassette releases.
NONENTITIES and ARM THY FEAR released their music online and it was VERY GOOD. Can’t wait for a full-length and physical release from (n)!
Distribution wise, we were able to place an order for records/merch at least once a month and we intend to do the same for 2016.
Touring bands? We’ll just throw some confirmed names out there: WEEKEND NACHOS, PRIMITIVE MAN and MAGRUDERGRIND sound good to you?
Releases? VEILS 7” will be our priority and some people will be again helping us with this one. Watch out. CLEAN SLATE demo? Got that right. VALUE LASTS LP? You betcha.
Distribution? We’re always looking for stuff to distribute so don’t hesitate to send us a message. We can do trades for our releases as well.
Mailorder. Yeah, we kinda do that once a month. Its simple. Go over torevhq.com. Check out the thousands of titles they have. Let us know.
