If you’ve been hanging around the social media lately, then there’s a good chance you might have heard of news and rumors regarding some Still Ill related bands, shows and releases. The past two (2) months had been a blur and we were not able to update this site with more regularity. Our bad.
First off, we’d like to thank everyone who showed up at the LEMURIA show last month. Organizing that show was a fun and taxing experience for everyone involved. Big thanks to Egg (Declaration of Purity) for stepping up and helping out. The LEMURIA show was a blast. From the opening acts to the final note that LEMURIA played. All smiles and high fives at the show. The show also turned out to be a tribute of sorts to one of the pillars of Still Ill, past drummer of BYSTORM and the present drummer of VALUE LASTS, Denver Rubis. We still miss you brother.
Speaking of shows, RANDOM VIOLENCE and VALUE LASTS will be playing later at Bulgogi Garden at Kalayaan Avenue in Quezon City. This is a benefit show for a women’s shelter in celebration of women’s month so you know it’s for a good cause. The organizers will also release a compilation CD from the bands who will play tonight’s show. Pretty diverse line-up. We’ll see you there.
Check out the store section of the website to get the following titles from Still Ill:
Still Ill 04: Bystorm 'Sumalangitnawa' full-length CD
Still Ill 05: Armas ng Lias 'Street + Live' CS tape
Still Ill 09: The Skeleton Years 'Behind Lunacy and You'
Still Ill 10: Movin'Up, Movin' On Compilation CD
THE NEAR FUTURE
And more on shows, we just confirmed that WOLFxDOWN (vegan straightedge hardcore from Germany) will be playing on May 27, 2014 in Manila. This will be a collaborative effort from a lot of people (thanks to social media for the quick response, the internet does have its benefits) and will surely be a lot of fun. Stay tuned for details.
Word has gotten out regarding Still Ill 11 which is a collaboration with Mutilated Noise Records in releasing the FEUD ‘For the Sake of Unity?’ 7” which is a remastered version of the original recordings we did and released via the infamous Take-4 Collective way back in 2001 (time flies!). However, we had to cut a couple of songs so that it will fit into a 7”. The sound quality is wayyy better than the one released thirteen (13) years ago. Available in red, blue and black vinyl. This one had already been sent to the pressing plant so expect this to drop very soon.
Since vinyl is all the rage, the next release for Still Ill will be a split 7” between RANDOM VIOLENCE and VALUE LASTS. Three (3) songs each from these two raging bands. RV had already finalized their recording and VL will be finished in a week’ time so this one will likewise be available very soon. PRAYER OF ENDURANCE from Baguio City is still in the process of putting finishing touches to their full-length CD ‘Reverse of the Reverse’. This is something to watch out for. Bang your f’n head.
That’s it. We hope to make this site into an easier format to upload news. Thanks for reading. Stay tuned.
