Catch RANDOM VIOLENCE and VALUE LASTS together with some new awesome bands (CROSSED OUT, SOME CAME RUNNING) at IDB Bar in Paranaque City this coming Saturday, December 7, 2013. This is likewise a continuous drive for the victims of Typhoon Yolanda. You know the drill.
Sorry for the lack of posts recently. As you all know, the Philippines was recently hit by Typhoon Haiyan which caused severe devastation in the eastern provinces of the Visayas. Massive relief and rehabilitation efforts are being done to help those who were affected by the typhoon. The hardcore punk community is also doing its share. A lot of benefit gigs are happening all around, from Luzon to Mindanao, so help out in whatever capacity you can.
For some Still Ill updates, Random Violence and Value Lasts will be going to Baras, Rizal later to play a show. Both bands will be recording sometime in December for their upcoming split 7”. A Movin’ Up, Movin On compilation release party will be held at the old Paskuhan Village in San Fernando, Pampanga tonight so if you’re ever in the area, check it out, say hi and make some new friends.
DEAD IN THE DIRT from Atlanta, GA will be playing tomorrow night at BKB, West Avenue, Quezon City. Be sure to be there!
Some more news and releases are in the hot stove right now so keep checkin!
The WORLD EATER show last night was awesome. Full on Lockin’ Out! Inspired hardcore. Almost made you think they were from Boston rather than Germany. They also did covers from SSD, Shark Attack and the Cro-Mags. Fck yes.
Unfortunately, Black King’s Bar has this new policy on putting tables in the middle of the dance floor for whatever reason. One of the owners even pulled the plug while WORLD EATER was playing and the crowd was gettin apesht on the floor. Jacka$$. Reason prevailed and WE managed to finish their set.
Speaking of BKB, Still Ill decided no longer to hold the Movin Up Movin On release party in the said venue because of their stupid policy. We’re still looking for a venue and another date to hold the show.
Apologies go out to members of EMBRACE THE ABSURD because of a mild fck-up that happened with the compilation. I don’t know what happened but instead of their original song appearing in the compilation, their cover of ‘Retaliate’ by Tame the Tikbalang appeared on the compilation. It’s still a very good song and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
It’s back. After being down for the past couple of weeks, the Still Ill website is up and running.
The newest release from Still Ill, the MOVIN’ UP, MOVIN’ ON compilation is finally available not only from Still Ill but also from Delusion of Terror and Love from Hate records. This compilation features EIGHTEEN (18) of the best of the new breed of hardcore punk bands from the Philippines today. From as far north as Baguio City to the southernmost portion of Polomolok, South Cotabato and a variety of styles from fast hardcore to melodic punk rock to devastating metallic hardcore and everything in between, this compilation has it all.

Bands appearing on the compilation will be playing along with a couple of guest bands. Another release show will be happening for the residents of the South at IDB Bar at Paranaque City on November 2, 2013. Make sure to check out both shows.
Still available: We still have some copies of THE SKELETON YEARS CD, Random Violence Demo and Value Lasts Demo.
Coming very soon: We just got word from the National Audio Company in the United States that the Armas Ng Lias ‘Street + Live’ tape is on its way. Hopefully this arrives before the year ends.
Still Ill would also like to announce its newest project: the RANDOM VIOLENCE/VALUE LASTS split 7”. This is an ambitious project considering the costs and that this is the first time we’d be releasing vinyl. If any other label is interested in helping out in this project, send us a message.
Check out the 'Dead Night' official music video of The Skeleton years which they premiered last week in the release party of 'Beyond Lunacy and You'. We still have some copies if you're interested. Orders placed last week will ship out tomorrow. it's been a terribly busy day for the label and work, so thanks for bearing with us.
Details on the Movin' Up, Movin' On! compilation CD will be released later in the week. We're targeting for a second or third week of August release date so that's something to watch out for.
The Armas Ng Lias tape is still in the pressing plant as this is being posted. They have some new songs recorded for a new release so watch out for that one also.
Do you know WOLFxDOWN (vegan sxe) from Germany? Rumors are floating that they will be hitting the metro this September. Any truth to this? Keep posted. Or better yet, GET PSYCHED.
Also, check out our friend Odessa's (Kaktus Karuka, Rush IxDx, Chokecocoi) new project: a veggie take-out/per order project (vegie bagoong, burritos, meals, etc.). She does deliveries and what-not and also does awesome tattoos.Check it out
And if you still don't know, STILL ILL has a small store in our practice space located in no less than Led's house. Check out the titles in the webstore, make an advance order and send us a message and visit the store!
Still Ill's been a roll lately and a lot of stuff is still in the works. Thanks for the support.
