The Rest is Noise have added Ciudad, Flying Ipis, and Shirebound and Busking to the year end line-up. The organizers have recently dropped Jensen and the Flips due to allegations of sexual misconduct, and Ang Bandang Shirley who were scheduled to play at the event are no longer performing in the festival. The band has issued a statement in response to the claims against some its members earlier this evening (11/24).
Read the full statement here:
Electropop trio Tandems '91 recently announced their disbandment and was supposed to play their final gig on Saturday. However, the band decided not to have a farewell performance, because they "feel that it would be inappropriate for the victims." We spoke to vocalist Aaron Cruz and he shared that the band had a meeting to discuss the issues surrounding the music scene and revealed that there were a lot of factors they had to consider before reaching their final decision to pull out of the event. "It was supposed to be our last gig and in the end, we just felt that it does not feel right. I mean, nakakalungkot lang din kasi yung mga pangyayari...dude, may mga victims! It's hard to play with that [thought] in mind," Cruz adds.

After much consideration, we decided to pull-out from the Rest is Noise gig.
Sorry short notice, pero di rin maiiwasan kasi ang bilis lang din ng mga pangyayari nitong nakaraang mga araw. Sa totoo lang importante din ‘tong gig na to para samin dahil last show namin but the band feels that it would be inappropriate for the victims. Opinyon at desisyon lang naman namin bilang tandems; I hope you guys understand.
Sana maayos na lahat, sana mabago at di na mangyari ulit mas lalo na sa mundo ng musika.
Lastly, we also decided not to do a last show. Salamat sa lahat ng sumuporta sa tandems ever since we started. Imposible naman na mahiwalay kami sa musika dahil parte na yan ng buhay naming tatlo. Di namin alam kung anong susunod para sa Tandems pero sa ngayon mukhang wala na.
Hanggang sa muli,
Aaron, JR, Nach
