Despite the heat and limited space, words cannot express how the band and our management team appreciate everyone (around 400 people) who cramped inside 70s Bistro to join us in this celebration of music. We dedicate this comeback to all true fans of O&L. Thank you for the warm acceptance in spite of being a trio, the technical glitches and occasional blunders. We are still feeling our way with our old songs and as a performing unit.

Many traveled from far places. We are deeply sorry to those who queued but can’t get in. We will be announcing a 5 city bar tour within the Metro for the month of October so we can be near where you are.

To old and new faces, thank you for singing along, for making us feel a decade younger and still relevant. We love you dearly!

Forget that our songs are not available on Spotify or why we reformed as a trio. Exactly 10 years after our last gig in the US, we will be back on stage through a series of bar gigs in the Metro that will kick-off at 70s Bistro on September 29. Incidentally, this is also the venue where we last performed with the original line up in Manila before disbanding in 2007.

Presented by JAM 88.3 in partnership with Lilystars Records and Darkus Music, “Armageddon Is Coming To Town” will also feature Blind Stereo Moon, Meagan Trees and The Strange Creatures.

We look forward to a nostalgic evening with you all!

It’s been almost 10 years now. We badly miss the music so we decided to add a new chapter in the band’s short history. We have officially reformed Orange & Lemons as a trio to continue where we left off. This is not some fancy reunion, but a decision to protect the legacy of the band and the songs that many of you know and have grown to love. New music is on the horizon and we promise to stay true to the sound we are known for with a clear-cut independent direction. We feel good at the prospect of playing our modest catalog for you in the coming months. Until then.

Yours sincerely,
Clem, JM & Ace
