The band is Runmanila, the newest band of Universal Records and Orion Entertainment. The band is composed of four college students Kevin Lim (Vocals, Sound Effects), Aaron Cruz (Programming, Guitars, Synthesizers), JR Jader (Electronics, Beats, Electro Drums) and Ignacio Cuyegkeng (Guitars, Synthesizers, Sound effects).

Asked about their music, the members of the band replied, “we want to call it ElectroPopRock -where rock meets dance, head banging meets booty shaking, rock moves plus dance grooves.”

Runmanila brings in a new sound through rock guitar riffs and simple drum beats blended with electro synthesizers, drum machines, and four-on-the-floor beats.

The band is the newest addition to he Orion Entertainment roster of artists, headlined by Noel Cabangon and ably supported by the most promising acts in local entertainment industry Kimpoy Feliciano, Jordan Bautista, Jensen Gomez, Jason Fernandez and bands She’s Only Sixteen, Six Part Invention, and Aspen Way. Orion Entertainment is also the international agent of Sam Concepcion, Karylle, Sponge Cola and JayR.

Runmanila is scheduled to release their debut album in early 2013, under Universal Records and Orion Entertainment.
