If they could have their way, the members of St. Wolf - KL Dela Cruz, Vince Lucero (guitars), Karlo Maglasang (bass), and Bob Sadural (drums), would have been working on the new songs they lined up for their future new album.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, however, “Many plans and releases have been delayed because of the things that happened for the past months-- leaving all of us disappointed," the the guys of St. Wolf said in an online interview.
Instead of sulking about it however, they decided to turn the situation into something positive.
The members of St. Wolf instead play around with their previous tracks and experiment with new sounds. The result: a remix EP.
"The remixes were pretty much done without being together all the time, which fit in our advantage during these times. We do the remixes mostly pretty much on our own and we contact each other if we need help with anything like instruments or more ideas.”
“Our inspiration for this was our circumstances during the lockdown. Since all of us are living in different
parts of the country and experiencing different head spaces, we wanted to to connect with "The Pack" and give them a treat: a chronological mirror of each member’s experiences in lockdown through re-imaginations of how our
songs would be done in different styles. Each song is a reflection of every emotion that we went through
during those times,”
Along with the EP, St. Wolf will also be dropping their new song “Lapastangan”. “’Lapastangan’ is about
realizing that people should not tolerate abusive behaviour of others and that they should stand for
themselves against injustice and evil. Especially for this time, truth, love, and justice must persevere.”
And for the time being, although the four of us are
separated from each other, we have been working on writing a good number of new songs that we are
really excited to share with people. We just hope that we may find light and peace through this dark
age. Our prayers are with all of you.”
