Being one of the few acts that made the transition from an indie to a major label and got better and better in the process, SANDWICH is back in the studio and gearing up for promo tour of their 9-track album titled CONTRA TIEMPO released by Polyeast Records in January 2011. SandwichÆs new album will be launched on March 4, 2011, 8:00 pm at the Eastwood Central Plaza.
As the rock quintet follows 2008's 'S Marks The SpotÆ, CONTRA TIEMPO is SandwichÆ sixth album since they came into the rock scene in 1998. Headed by a former Eraserheads member Raimund Marasigan (vocals), Sandwich is back with their kick off single LAKAD which represents a promising step forward for the album. Lakad is now playing on local radio stations and will soon release the singleÆs music video as directed by Jason Magbanua.
In December 2009, Sandwich released a brand new single to help and inspire our typhoon victims through the song titled PUTIK, which is also included in the new cd. The album shows impressive range: while all of the songs are radio-ready rockers, they span a wide variety of musical elements with other titles include LAPIT; TAKBO; SUGATAN; STRANDED SA AIRPORT; PERA, PERA; SULPUTIN and BISIKLETA.
Sandwich signed with their home label EMI Philippines (now Polyeast Records) in 2006 for their fourth overall release and major label debut called Five On The Floor catapulted them to the top of the OPM charts with the songs Sugod, Sunburn, DVDx and Walang Kadala-dala. Then Sandwich released the 2008Æs S Marks The Spot and spawned four hit singles like Procrastinator, Betamax, Selos and Manila.
Sandwich are Raimund Marasigan (lead vocals/keyboards); Myrene Academia (bass guitar); Mong Alcaraz (guitars); Diego Castillo (guitars) and Mike Dizon (drums).
Watch them live as they perform their newest rock singles on March 4, 2011 at the Eastwood Central Plaza, 8:00 pm. Buy the album and get the chance to meet the band and bring home an autographed poster. SandwichÆs album CONTRA TIEMPO is now available in stores released under Polyeast Records.
