Hardcore band Piledriver [Philippines] have reunited with their original vocalist Treb for a slew of shows. The timing is perfect as the band lost yet another vocalist a few weeks ago. The band has had a revolving door of vocalists for the many years they’ve been around (formed in 1998), but like any band committed to their art – Piledriver has trudged on for almost 20 years now.
The news was announced a few days ago as the band announced that their original vocalist was back in town and decided to join the band for a few dates that the band had already confirmed awhile ago.
When we asked Treb how this all came together he had this to say:
“Hey man! Thanks for asking! Well I came back home [Philippines] for family reasons and the thing was the band had shows already set up for this month and the next. Unfortunately their current vocalist migrated to the States recently so they were looking for someone to fill up the post, and I just happened to be back. I’m doing a total of 6 shows with the guys and I’m just hoping kids will continue to support the local scene and let them know how lucky they are that the scene here in the Philippines is like family. There are many places around the world where hardcore doesn’t feel like this.”
He also added:
“Shout out to everyone who has been supporting our small label and distribution RAILROAD RECORDS…distributor of hardcore punk vinyl and merch in the Philippines from Victory Records, Revelation Records, Deathwish Records, and Bridge Nine Records.” https://www.facebook.com/RailRoad4026
