About the band
The band’s first big break came in May 2005 when they made it to the finals of the MTV Hits Cebu band showdown held at the SM City Cebu Parking Lot. With their hard rocking song Oblivion, Hastang went on to win second place over-all in the band competition. Since then, the band’s popularity in the indie scene increased as they made frequent appearances in music bars.
In 2006, the single Random began enjoying regular air play - even rising to the top 4 of a local station's weekly countdown.
Hastang also proved to be instrumental in reviving POST NO BILL, a series of gigs that showcases the best acts of the local music scene. Along with indie veterans Sheila and the Insects, Hastang has become a mainstay of this bi-monthly musical event held in various venues in Cebu.
Hastang has undergone some line-up changes in the last few years, notably in the addition of new singer Ara Chawdhury in 2009.
During this time, the band recorded 10 songs in Phoenix Glide Studios with the exception of Random, which was recorded earlier in the summer of 2005 at the same studio. The said song was later re-mastered with Guile doing minor bass guitar re-dubs.
In early 2006, after four months of studio tracking and mixing, the band wrapped up the recording of the album.
