Confirmed: Pinoy rock act Bamboo disbands after 8 years
"It’s official; the band-it’s over," Bamboo vocalist Bamboo Mañalac wrote in a statement recently posted on the rock band’s website. "Things change. As a group, we’ve come to a point where you have to trust your gut, your heart and your head, and accept that all things change. The hardest part, as always, is (knowing) when to pack it up and part ways."
The statement reads: "We’ve learned that this journey is not only about us but includes all who came along for the trip. Family, friends and, of course, our front-row believers who were there for the best reason of all: to simply listen. So it didn’t come easy winding down to this decision."
Although the band is calling it quits, Mañalac said, "Music will forever be a part of our lives and I (can’t) imagine us just simply walking away. Not possible. All I see are possibilities."
In their eight years as a band--"a lifetime in this business," said Mañalac--the band released four albums: As The Music Plays (2004), Light Peace Love (2005), We Stand Alone Together (2007) and Tomorrow Becomes Yesterday (2008).
Bamboo performs "Much Has Been Said" at 19 East.
