“Surprise!”

This is the intriguing caption of a photo shared by the Facebook Page of the Philippines’ most loved alternative band, Eraserheads.

The photo featured all members of the band: frontman and guitarist Ely Buendia, drummer Raimund Marasigan, lead guitarist Marcus Adoro and bassist Buddy Zabala all together. The photo came with the hashtag #IbaTalagaPagKumpleto.

Although the Facebook post did not mention anything about a reunion concert or an act featuring all four membersbof the greatest Filipino band, an earlier post that it followed said there will be “more upcoming surprises soon.”

Fans quickly commented on the photo, most were really hoping that the band performs again.

“Aasa ako kahit ang sakit na (I’ll still hope even if it’s already painful),” King Barrack commented on one of the posts.

While Lee Ivy Lim Acevedo pleaded: “Concert pleaseeeeeee…..”

The group had a mini-reunion last June during the launch of Smart Communications’ revamp where they performed a total of 18 songs. The reunion performance was kind of a surprise that a lot of fans are still clamoring for a re-take of the show.

Prior to the Smart launch, Eraserheads also had a World Tour in London, Dubai, Singapore and even North America.

In 2008, Eraserheads had a well-publicized reunion concert. But It was cut short when Buendia had to be rushed to the Makati Medical Center because of a heart attack.

Formed in 1989, Eraserheads has been known as the most influential alternative band in Philippine music history where a lot of succeeding bands drew inspiration from.

The group, which saw incarnation at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, disbanded in 2002 when Buendia left the band to pursue “business matters.”
