“Continent Records is a DIY label based in the Las Pinas/Paranaque area of Metro Manila. Headed by Jaime Abellar and Tani Carino. The label aims to promote the local underground music of the area/surrounding areas. Go to shows, support the scene!”
The label has made two awesome announcements this past week:
Announcement Number One
The signing of Filipino ska-punk act The Oemons. Continent Records had this to say about the signing:
“Yeah we got The Oemons! They’re a ska punk band from Quezon City. They kinda have that Big D and The Kids Table thing going on. Great band! We usually house pop punk/emo/melodic hardcore bands so having a ska band in the family gives us a more open vibe!”
The band themselves had this to say:
“Yep, this just happened! We’re now part of the Continent Records family! Forrealsies. Check out their awesome roster sa “About” Tab nila, you’ll see the dreaded “The Oemons” alongside amazing local acts. Simula palang to, guys. Continent and The Oemons are brewing VERY EVIL THINGS as the year unfolds!”
Continent Records has said that a full length is in the midst that will hopeofully be released both digitally and on CD
