Formed in May 2007, "Experi-Metal Electronica" band EVEN

Now, EVEN is officially a three-piece band with Dyanne Licudine on vocals, Jam Bumanlag on guitars and Coco Saupan on bass.MYXph.com
had the chance to talk to guitar and FX man Jam Bumanlag
and he was thrilled to announce to us that the official music video for their latest single "Retribution" will be out tomorrow!"Retribution"
is a song that depicts the the highs and lows of everyday reality and he shared to us, "The theme and lyrics of our new album was sort of a retribution to what happened to us as a band and to our personal lives. There were a lot of pros and cons, but we managed to balance out, be optimistic, and stand firm in whatever decision we made."
Vocalist Dyanne Licudine was also successful in delivering more
profound, earnest and relatable lyrics, fitting the band's new heavier
What to expect from the album? "The song Retribution (and maybe the whole album) may sound angrier, more "metal", more attack than any of the songs from our first album but at the same time still retaining to our music roots which is really electronica-based rock music,"
