Formed back in 2011 and initially inspired by metalcore bands like Asking Alexandria and Memphis May Fire, Philippines-based band Saving Ruth have since seen the light inspired by locally born and bred Cebu City hardcore heroes Queen City Crew and others. “Along the way we got into hardcore, inspired and influenced by its lifestyle, brotherhood and the music. Shout out to Queen City Crew and all the other local hardcore bands here in Cebu for keeping the hardcore community alive.”
The band has just released a pretty emotionally charged new single entitled ‘Lighthouse’. “We dedicate this song to those people who are in a constant struggle in life. The song is also based on real-life situations. It’s not about how many times life knocks you down. It’s all about getting up and not giving up on life.”
The band is working on their EP to be released on Small House Records and will include more elements of hardcore and even beatdown.
