Some bits and pieces.
VALUE LASTS, VEILS and a special appearance by RANDOM VIOLENCE (with two sessionist drummers!) will be playing tomorrow at the MRR DAY OF PUNK AND HARDCORE GIGS WORLDWIDE at Malolos City, Bulacan. We’ll be playing with a bunch of punk rock bands from all over so head on over and let’s hang! The RV/VL split 7” will be available at this show!
The day after, the aforementioned three (3) bands will be playing on the “official” RANDOM VIOLENCE/VALUE LASTS split 7” release party happening at Back to the 90’s Bar at Tomas Morato, Quezon City. We asked some of our friends to play with us and this will be a blast! Doors open before 4:00 PM and VEILS will be opening the show, so go early! Also, we’ll have a special cover for the split 7” available for this show. Limited to only 30 copies. Buy one and the entrance is free man. See you there!
The VEILS demo tape will be re-pressed by our good friend from Get up and Go! and he’ll be selling them at the Aklasan Fest! To those in the United States who want a copy of this tape, go and send him a message. VEILS will be recording for a new project before summer ends.

Still Ill pre-order next deadline will be on April 30, 2015. Place your orders in! ETA for last month's order is first week of May 2015.
Yow, check it. We're throwing a party for the recently released RANDOM VIOLENCE/VALUE LASTS split 7" happening on May 17, 2015 at Back to the 90's Bar at Tomas Morato Avenue, Quezon City. Sunday Matinee, of course. 4:00 PM. We're gonna play with a bunch of our friends so you know it's gonna be a good time! Oh, and we're gonna have a limited run of release party versions of the split 7". No biggie.
24 April 2015
The RANDOM VIOLENCE/VALUE LASTS split 7” dropped out of nowhere yesterday and we immediately announced the availability of the same via social media. Available thru Still Ill and other labels who co-produced this record: LEFT HAND PATH PRESS, DELUSION OF TERROR RECORDS, LOVE FROM HATE RECORDS, AKLASAN RECORDS (US) and GET UP AND GO! (US).
Available in three color variants: black/300, green/100 and clear/100. We got a package going on that if you get all three colors, we’ll sell it to you at a slightly cheaper rate of Php 800.00. Each record is available for Php 300.00, by the way.
We’ll try and make this available to local record stores as soon as possible.
We’ll also bring some copies to the NEW BREED show happening this Sunday, April 26, 2015 at Selda Dos. Send us a message if you want to reserve a copy in advance. Let’s hang out at this show and support local punk rawk bands.
Thanks for reading.

Back from a lengthy vacation and we do have some news for y’all but before we go there let us thank the guys from SLEEPING BOY COLLECTIVE for organizing the HIEROPHANT show last weekend. We had a blast playing and watching the show. The HIEROPHANT set was f’n epic. A part of my ribs are still aching from that show.
The last couple of weeks also saw the release of the March 2015 issue of the Still Ill newsletter which we gave away at shows. We still have some copies available. Approach us at shows and we’ll give one or some to you. Interviews with PLAY and PRAYER OF ENDURANCE essentially demanding that they finish their respective recordings and release their records ASAP!
Speaking of records, we just got word that the RANDOM VIOLENCE/VALUE LASTS split 7” is almost ready to be released. We will have a release party which will coincide with the Maximum Rock and Roll international day for shows to benefit MRR so this one is something to watch out for. Happening on May 16, 2015. Venue will be somewhere in Quezon City.
But before all that RANDOM VIOLENCE/MRR bullsht, Still Ill will be bringing back the ‘NEW BREED’ series of shows to ‘showcase’ some new and new(ish) bands and have a venue for them to play and have their songs and releases be heard. The latest installment will feature: BRAIN PROLAPSE (powerviolence from Batangas), REFUSE (Baguio City), RED JOHN (Bulacan) and the following bands from within the metro: NONENTITIES, THIEVES, SOME CAME RUNNING and SHAMAN’S BUD! We know the line-up is pretty diverse from who or what usually plays in a SI show so this will be amazing to watch. Show starts at 4 PM and ends at 8 PM. Sunday matinee fools! Check out the flyer done by Keeyo:
See y’all at the aforementioned shows and keep checking for more available titles in our store/releases section. We’ll be doing another mailorder before April ends. Send us an e-mail if you got something in your mind: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Thanks to everyone who went out and partied at the BANE show last Friday. It was a hell of a good time! Thanks to BANE for finding time to play in this little country of ours. All the local bands ripped last Friday. Shame that SURROGATE PREY was not able to play.
The late December batch of pre-orders is already at Manila. Damn port congestion messing up the timeline of arrival of the records and other stuff. We’ll send a message as soon as its available. The February batch is already on its way to our forwarder.
March 10 – VENGEANCE TODAY show somewhere in Quezon City. They have another show at Lucena, Quezon.
March 21 – ANDY DEPORTED show at Malolos City, Bulacan.
April 3 (Good Friday show!) – HIEROPHANT from Italy. Hell f’n yes.
2 February 2015
It had been an up and down two (2) weeks. It started off with a loss of a dear family member followed up by the death of a friend to whom I did not get a chance to say goodbye to. To Mr. Dennis ‘Mot-Mot’ Matibag, you were an inspiration to us all and will never be forgotten. There is no peace in this world as you said, but maybe there is on the other side, brother. Rest well.
From all the personal tumult, I had to book and confirm the flights of BANE who will be doing their final Southeast Asian Tour. In all probability, this will be our last chance to see them, so let’s do it and rock out to one of the best hardcore bands of the last decade.
The show will be happening in a big warehouse somewhere in Cogeo, Antipolo City. It’s one ride from Cubao or Santolan Station of LRT 2. Ride jeeps/FX/AUV with the Cogeo sign and ask to be dropped in the Unirock Quarry in front of the Petron station (there is only one there) and the venue is there. If you’re bringing a vehicle, don’t worry lots of parking spaces available. Food and drinks will be sold at the canteen in the venue. There will be vegetarian/vegan and non-vegetarian selections. Here’s the flyer for the show:
Before the BANE show, we’ll be playing a benefit show for the family of Mot. The show will be held at Back to the 90’s Bar. Entrance is Php 150.00 but if you’re feeling generous, you’re welcome to donate more. The show line-up is sick. Doors open at 1:30 PM. It’s a Sunday matinee so be there early. Here’s the flyer for the show:
The previous late December pre-order is on its way and we expect the same to be in our office by the second week of February. We’ll send you a message once its here.
Also, the February pre-order is already up and the deadline will be on February 10, 2015. Send a message to email@example.com or thru our facebook page for your orders.
We've decided to upload our releases on digital format and you can purchase the same without need of shipping costs, etc. Though we prefer you still secure a physical copy, you can always download our releases at this page.
Thanks for the continued support and expect more from Still Ill this year!

Happy new year to everyone! We had a blast last year at STILL ILL and there are no signs of slowing down here at the Still Ill camp.
The RANDOM VIOLENCE/VALUE LASTS split 7” should be available very soon as we’re just awaiting word on the shipping date and sht. This project was a pain in the a$$ to deal with but with the help of our friends, we were able to push it through.
We were talking to Rallye of the release of SURROGATE PREY cassette and we’ll definitely find a way to release it very soon. If you like heavy, hard sludge, you will dig this band. Think Bloodlet having a three-way with THOU and NUEROSIS. Yes, it’s that good.
We got some plans for VEILS, RV and VL and all will be unveiled very soon.
The STILL ILL camp will also be hosting a show for a touring band on February 19, 2015. Details to follow but you should definitely post your leave of absence on the said date.
Finally, the distribution and mailorder section of Still Ill has been going strong. The pre-order for December had already been ordered from RevHQ and our ETA will be the first week of February. Check out our distro page for the list of available titles and our mailorder section on how to pre-order. Good things.
24 December 2014
It had been an awesome time for us here at Still Ill, new releases, shows and sht. Thanks to everyone who supported the label/distro, to all the bands who let us help release their records and every band who played in shows.
It was a hell of a year and we look forward to 2015!
More releases on the way and some more records are still available in our distro page.
24 November 2014
Thanks to everyone who went to the screening of the Pinoi Punk Documentary Film by Rupert Estanislao. It was an awesome time with the film and the bands who played last night.
Don't forget to show up on Thursday, November 27, 2014, at Selda Dos (along Visayas Ave., between Congressional Road and Tandang Sora Extension, Quezon City) for the WE RIDE (from Vigo, Spain) show.
An update on our last pre-order - As you may have known already, packages shipped to the Philippines are currently being delayed by the port congestion and the Christmas rush, so we invite you to extend your patience, our sht should be arriving soon.
Also, we'll be taking another batch of pre-orders. Check out the mailorder section of this website for details on how to order. Cut-off will be on December 11, 2014. Go!
6 November 2014
It’s been a busy week here at the Still Ill HQ. We’ve been in contact with Rupert of Aklasan Records/Eskapo about showing his film ‘Pinoi Punk Documentary’ about Filipino/Fil-Am hardcore punk bands residing in the USA. We finally managed to set up the film showing together with a punk rock show. It will be happening on the 23rd of November 2014, Sunday at Black King’s Bar at West Avenue, Quezon City. Rupert will be doing an introduction plus a Q and A before and after the film showing, so make sure to be there! Here’s the flyer:
Before that show, we recently heard some sad news that IDB Bar at Paranaque City which is being ran by Sharen (The Skeleton Years) will be closing down and will have a final show on November 15, 2014. Too bad because the venue had been a staple of the local punk rock scene for a couple of years now. In any case, some Still Ill bands will be joining the last hurrah of this club. Here’s the flyer for IDB’s last show.
Finally, RANDOM VIOLENCE will be playing on November 28, 2014 at Selda Dos at Visayas Avenue cor. Tandang Sora, Quezon City. As of this writing, details are still a bit sketchy so sit back and wait for more info. Keep checkin this page.

Thanks to everyone who went and partied with us at The Skeleton Years release party, the bands who played (and even the ones who weren’t able to play), bought TSY CDs, VEILS tapes and other merch. It was a lot of fun, especially being it was VEILS’ debut show. Another show is being prepared by the good guys at Dark Rift (Thanks Larry!) and some accomplices.
We still have some copies of the TSY CD left. If you want a VEILS demo, send a message to Egg of Left Hand Press.
Pre-order will shut down tomorrow morning so you maybe have some 14 to 18 hours left to place an order. Send a message to email@example.com.
Gonna keep this short but keep checkin this page for more info.

Two (2) more days and it’s THE SKELETON YEARS “Pieces of Recovery” CD release party at Black King’s Bar, West Avenue, Quezon City. Php 100.00 gets you in but Php 200.00 gets you in and a copy of the new CD of TSY. This is a no-brainer. Why the hell would you want to go to a release party and come home without the subject of a release party? Still Ill has limited copies (around 50) so make sure to go grab one upon arrival at the venue.
Doors will open at 7:00 PM with the first band VEILS making their debut show. Oh and VEILS themselves got a three (3) song demo cassette available at that show courtesy of LEFT HAND PRESS. Limited to 40 copies. Ferocious hardcore punk from the singer of Bystorm and some back-up band members.
October 12 is fast approaching and we’ll be done with our first batch of pre-orders. Thanks to those who have already placed their orders and we expect those of you who haven’t sent us their orders to contact us in the next few days. For more info on Still Ill pre-order head on over to http://stillillhc.com/mailorder.html
See you in a couple of days!
02 October 2014
Check out the upcoming release shows for THE SKELETON YEARS' Pieces of Recovery CD on October 11 (BKB, West Ave., QC) and on October 18, 2014 (IDB, Paranaque City). Stacked line-up for both shows.
Also, check out this show put up by our friend Egg (Declaration of Purity) whcih serves as a thank you show for his wrist operation. Edge Day? Nope. It's Egg Day! :D
Finally, you got about ten (10) days until our first pre-orders go up. Send us your list. Check out the mailorder section of this site!
23 September 2014
It’s back. Finally. The Still Ill website is back online after a series of bugs swept thru our old files. After a couple of months deliberating on putting this back up, we decided to bring it up again with some awesome features.
The first order of business is the PRE-ORDER feature we have on this site. Everyone who ordered anything from foreign distributors know how hard and expensive it is. From shipping to handling to customs charges, it’s a pain in the ass. So we’re offering a pre-order service for you. We’ll be ordering from Revelation or Ebullition Distribution once a month and we’ll have it shipped via Manila Forwarder. Cut-off date is every Sunday of the month so for our first pre-order, cut-off date will be on October 12, 2014. This pre-order will save you time, money and a whole lot of patience in dealing with unscrupulous distributors. For more details on our pre-order, check out this page.
Aside from our pre-order, we’ll also be stocking up on our stuff for distribution so keep checking for our updated list.
The FEUD ‘For the Sake of Unity’ 7” has been released a couple of months ago. We still have some copies available and these are the last ones. Thanks to all those who bought some copies from us and MUTILATED NOISE RECORDS.
THE SKELETON YEARS ‘Pieces of Recovery’ CD will be released on October 11, 2014. A release party will be held at Black King’s Bar at Westlife Building, West Avenue, Quezon City. The line-up is packed and make sure you pick up the CD. Php 100.00 gets you in. Php 200.00 gets you in and you’ll take home a CD of TSY. Here’s the show flyer
The RANDOM VIOLENCE/VALUE LASTS split 7” is in the pressing plant as we speak and will be available very soon. Thanks to all the labels who participated in this project. Limited to 300/black, 100/green and 100/clear. Preview a track from each band. Our stock of RUSH IxDx cassettes our gone. I heard there are a few copies left from Rann of Together zine and Francis of Love From Hate. Check ‘em out.
VEILS demo coming very, very soon. ‘Nuff said.
We’ll keep this update as short as possible for now and we’ll try to update this page as often as possible. For quick updates, go and like and our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/stillillrecords
Thanks for reading and keep those orders coming!
