Alamid: Ang Pagbabalik
Anyone who grew up in the 90′s knows who Alamid is. They are the band responsible for massive hit songs like “China Eyes”, “Your Love”, “Batibot” and others.
Now, Alamid comes home.
Alamid returns to the country fresh from their stint in the Middle East. The band was a favorite of US servicemen where they had a 3-month long stint at a US Naval base in Bahrain.
They also recorded and released their latest album in Bahrain, Listening Pleasure. It is a limited edition CD that re-created the band’s original songs and revivals of some
great hits in acoustic version. That CD will soon be released in the country with a local label.
Alamid also had a successful show last October 9, Friday dubbed as RAKABAYAN Qatar 2009, which is an annual music festival in Doha, Qatar. They performed together with Rico Blanco and Brownman Revival for a 3,000-strong Filipino audience.
This Friday morning, November 13 2009 ALAMID will premiere a new song that will be in their 2010 album. “Closer” is a revival of an Immaculate original that is done in a style that only Alamid can do where they hope to remind the hearts of their fans about being in love, The followers of the band have long looked for a follow-up to the band’s quintessential song, “Your Love” which was their very first hit in 1994.
Alamid has also produced other hits as well like “China Eyes”, “Sama-Sama”, their version of the inspirational song, “Hesus” and the rockin’ version of “Batibot”.
