Hale's long-awaited album Alon is finally here.
The alternative rock act's fifth studio album follows the release of 2009's Kundiman and the band's 2015 EP Time and Space. Self-produced and recorded at guitarist Roll Martinez's home studio, Alon features its award-winning title track, which won at the Metro Manila Film Festival for Best Theme Song and their two latest singles 'My Beating Heart' and 'Simula Hanggang Huli,'
While Martinez took the reins in writing most of the songs, vocalist Champ Lui Pio penned 'Simula Hanggang Huli' and 'We Are' and drummer Paul Santiago wrote 'Hello Sunrise."
Alon also introduces the inclusion of violinist Chino David, who joined the band in 2017.
Hale will be celebrating the release of their new album on June 14 at 12 Monkeys Music Hall & Pub with Farewell Fair Weather, Mayonnaise, and more. 300 PHP gets you into the show, while 500 PHP comes with a limited edition CD of Alon.
