After posting, Labajo then uploaded a blacked-out image as his new profile picture across his social media accounts. He also archived all his previous posts on Instagram.

This surprise announcement comes just a month after his band had signed on with Island Records Philippines, a local subsidiary of one of the world’s most influential record companies. It’s unclear if Labajo’s hiatus will affect any near-future plans made with regards to his music.
