After almost 10 years as a band, The Mike Bon Gang has launched their self-titled album along with the music video "Umaasa Pa Rin Ako"! The track was also hand-picked as the theme song for the local airing of Korean drama Reply 1997! That's why frontman Mike Bon explained that "the feeling is... parang heaven eh!" He spoke for the three-piece band as they were in a state of pure happiness during their double launch last July 28!
The trio worked so hard on this album and they're so grateful for all of the support they've been getting! Although its release took a lot longer than expected, they feel that now is the perfect time!
Cholo Escano (drummer and vocals) said their album is "ten different stories about ten different things - life, love lost, love found, faith, unity, resilience, iba iba eh! It's mostly life experiences nilang dalawa," pointing to bandmates Mike and Jonathan Catacutan (bass and vocals) who wrote the songs.
