Wide Eyed Records Manila and Locals Only x San Miguel Pale Pilsen presents a Friday night filled with ultimate alt-folk tito-rock goodness this November, as the Strangeness are finally set to release their full-length debut album Scorned As Timber, Beloved Of The Sky featuring opening performances from Ian Penn, The Purplechickens, and Ciudad on November 24, 2017 at Mow’s Bar, Matalino St., Quezon City.

The band made up of Paolo Arciga, Jayme Ancia, Francis Cabal, Ivan Brosas, Bijan Gorospe, and Erwin Hilao have written and recorded 11-tracks over the span of four years with the help of Mikey Amistoso (Hannah + Gabi, Ciudad).

Scorned As Timber, Beloved Of The Sky will be available on all major streaming and download stores on November 24, 2017, while an exclusive vinyl release is set early next year.

Locals Only: Listening Party will also take place during the launch. Get the chance to vote for submissions that you think deserve to be featured on Locals Only! Here are the mechanics:

Two listening stations will be set up in the venue. These booths will contain 5-8 Locals Only song submissions that have not been featured yet! The top three songs with the highest votes will be aired on Locals Only.

How to vote?
1) Swing by The Strangeness: Scorned as Timber, Beloved of the Sky Launch and Locals Only: Listening Party on November 24, 2017 at Mow’s Bar, Quezon City
2) Purchase a bottle of San Miguel Pale Pilsen to vote. You may vote as many times as you want.
3) A crown is equivalent to one vote. Place the crown on the marker / song number.

See ‘ya there!
