10 Famous Filipino Bands: Where Are They Now?


A road trip with friends is dull without singing to “Overdrive” by the Eraserheads and  some “senti” time is incomplete without listening (and crying) to MYMP’s “Only Reminds Me of You”. Truly, many Pinoy bands made music that are forever to be remembered but, do you remember what happened to them after making it to fame? Check this list to know where they are now!

  1. Orient Pearl

“Pagkabigo’t alinlangan gumugulo sa isipan…”

After the release of Orient Pearl in 1996, their second album which contained hit songs “Pagsubok” and “Kasalanan”, Orient Pearl did not stop making awesome music and has released 2 more, the latest was the “Pagbabalik” album in 2002.  Currently, the band is rarely seen on TV but is said to have mini-reunions and gigs together.


  1. Orange and Lemons

You knew it, the “Pinoy Ako” song.

Formed in 1997, Orange and Lemons went on hiatus in the year 2000 but then came back in 2003. A year later they had their biggest break which is an offer from the ABS-CBN to record the theme song for its newest reality show: Pinoy Big Brother. Since then, ONL has been featured in several shows and their songs got strong radio airplay. In 2007, ONL disbanded due to misunderstandings among members and managers.


  1. MYMP

“Why don’t you tell me where it hurts now tell me…”

Probably one of the most favourite and most famous acoustic bands in the Philippines is MYMP. Since their rise to fame, non-stop guesting and awards have been received by the band.  After a rollercoaster of vocalist change, MYMP now has Jana Laraza as their vocalist and released their “Electrified” album in 2014.


  1. Kamikazee

One word: NARDA

Formed in UP Diliman, Kamikazee’s name became more familiar after the release of their hit song “Narda”.  Since then, albums and gigs were the life of each band member. In 2015, the band was reported to disband for the members to pursue their individual lives and in December 10 that same year, they held their “Huling Sayaw” farewell concert in Araneta Coliseum.
