Agsunta, once and for all, have spoken regarding the issue that involved them and the band December Avenue.
During the media conference for the band’s upcoming first major concert, ‘Agsunta Feels Trip,’ the band—comprises of J”Jireh Singson on vocals and rhythm guitars, Mikel Arevalo on lead guitars, Josh Planas on bass, and Stephen Arevalo on drums—said they are ‘okay’ with the other band.
“Kami naman, okay na okay kami sa kanila,” said Jireh.
“Very open ended kasi [‘yung issue],” Josh added.
“Hindi naman kasi talaga [sinabi] na kami ‘yon kasi marami naman pong nagco-cover,” Jireh also said. “Hindi namin ina-assume na kami talaga ‘yon.”
Asked whether they have met December Ave since the issue, Agsunta told there were gigs or show that they were in the line-up with the latter.
“Kaso madalas, hindi naman po kami nagkikita kasi minsan sa first part kami ng show, sila sa bandang huli, tapos minsan talagang magkaiba ng holding area,” they shared.
While others would think it was intentional, the band noted that it always happens co-incidentally.
It was in December last year when speculations about an alleged “shade” thrown by December Ave frontman Zel Bautista to Agsunta, via social media, sparked.
For a time, the said issue regarding posting covers on the internet, particularly YouTube channels, had also become a point of discussion among recording artists and the entire music scene.
After over month, Agsunta took down all their video covers on their own channel following an announcement of their hiatus.
Moving forward, Agsunta wants to set another milestone in their career — their first major concert.
‘Agsunta Feels Trip,’ according to the boys, will showcase different kinds of emotions that will come out from their performances.
Happening on September 21 at the ABS-CBN Vertis Tent, the concert—presented by OneMusicPH and PPL Entertainment in partnership with Star Events—will be joined by a number of guest performers such as BoybandPH, Shanti Dope, JM de Guzman, and Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid.
Tickets to the concert such as Gold (Php1,200), Silver (Php800), and Bronze (Php500) are available via ktx.abs-cbn.com.
