Last month (04/13), Sandwich celebrated their 20th anniversary with a massive concert dubbed Under the Glow of the Satellite.
Sandwich: This Band's A Party
Finally after some technical issues, fans who purchased SVIP tickets to the show can pick up their limited edition 7" vinyl records at a surprise signing session with Sandwich at The Grey Market in Quezon City on June 9 from 2-4 p.m, according to Jam 88.3. To those who won't be able to swing by the signing session, you can still pick up your SVIP perk at The Grey Market any day from 11:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m.
It's funny though when I refer to the "old days" as releasing new completed albums, when all those great bands I loved from the 50's and 60's - from the Beatles to the Rolling Stones, from Elvis Presley to Bob Dylan - had always done it this way. These artists released singles first, then slowly built the album around them.
Back then, radio was the only medium outside hearing the band live, so the 7" was the way to go for fans of artists to have the ability to hear their favorite songs anytime they wanted.
Now the rise of online sites has made this model come back to life, but even better since an artist can choose to upload any number of songs they want to be heard."

The 7" vinyl contains the new single 'Time Lapse' and its B-side 'Parang Walang Nangyari'.
