After 5 Years, Parokya Ni Edgar Is Finally Dropping a New Album

Parokya Ni Edgar is finally making their much-awaited comeback to the music scene with an all-new album!

The iconic rock band’s frontman Chito Miranda shared to friends and fans the great news on Instagram and explained why it took them so long to put it out.

Biking mag-isa pa-ikot-ikot sa village, tamang muni-muni lang habang sinasoundtrip yung bago naming album,” he began on his post. “Sobrang excited ko sa bagong album ng Parokya. Sobrang trip ko yung mga bago naming kanta. Sobrang masaya din ako sa mga nasulat ko, at sobrang saya ko din sa mga nasulat ng mga kabanda ko.

He said that the album had been untouched over the years due to him losing the drive to write new songs and having “no definite plans” of when it should be finished.

“Honestly, before this, parang tinamad na ko magsulat...for [5 years] nakatiwangwang lang yung album, with no definite plans kung kelan matatapos at kung kelan ito ilalabas (well…ganun naman kasi talaga kami eh hehe!) at sa totoo, kahit nagsusulat pa rin ako (with other artists and para sa mga TVCs), wala akong paki kung matapos man yung album namin o hindi,” he continued.

Tapos ngayon, bigla kaming ginanahan tapusin, at kinagagalak kong sabihin na maglalabas kami ng bagong album by November,” he said.

He then shared that projects like this shouldn’t be forced out of you and all you need is an inspiration to strike.

Ganun talaga eh…hindi mo pwedeng pilitin. Creative process yan eh. Pero ang masaya dun, kapag ginanahan ka, gigil na gigil ka naman,” he added.

The upcoming album will be their 10th. In the last five years since their last album, titled “Pogi Years Old” released in October 2016, Parokya Ni Edgar dropped singles such as “It’s Masarap” and “Smile.” Chito also recently collaborated with local folk-pop band Ben&Ben in their sophomore album “Pebble House, Vol. 1: Kuwaderno.”
