Revised! Friday, 17th to Sunday, 19th April 2009: Bad Omen
& The Beauty of Doubt Malaysia & Singapore Visit!
CONTRARY TO THE FIRST REPORT, THE BEAUTY OF DOUBT IS NOT TOURING!
Two Pinoy punk rock bands, THE BEAUTY OF DOUBT & BAD OMEN are coming over in April courtesy of the rather prolific UTARID BOOKINGS and it’s gonna be quite a short visit with three dates in both Singapore and Malaysia.
Some of you may have heard of THE BEAUTY OF DOUBT since they had a tape put out here by No Action Distro a few years back (Everything Ends EP), tens of the CD version of the album were also imported in by some friends, in fact I think the Ricecooker Shop still have a few copies left. If you like mid-tempo, crunchy/clean-guitar with melodic, almost emotive singing in your modern punk rock, THE BEAUTY OF DOUBT will rock your boat.
THE BEAUTY OF DOUBT has been around for almost 6 years now but the other band BAD OMEN (both feature Albert Escona on guitar) towers above a lot of SEA punk bands in terms of longevity. BAD OMEN played their first gig in 1991 along with the likes of early ragers such as Philippines Violators. This year the band is celebrating its 20th year in existence and recently put out their fourth album, God is Everywhere.
Hopefully we’ll get both bands new recordings to promote here soon, meanwhile do check them out:
April 17 @TBA, Singapore & @TBA, Batam
April 18 @Gudang Noisy, Ampang
April 19 @TBA, Johor Bharu
