Slapshock drops 'Bandera' music video followed by tour

It’s true what they say, nothing will ever defeat the feeling of having a whole battalion of your fans sing-along to every word of your song in every single tour you’re on, be it a concert, a music festival, or even a small intimate gig. This is probably one of the pinnacles of an artist’s career. But imagine having the voices of thousands of their fans be featured in a song, now that is definitely priceless and that is exactly what Slapshock did in their song ‘BANDERA’, their fourth and latest single from their 9th studio album ‘ATAKE’.

‘BANDERA’ took inspiration from the various banners that the Slap Armies proudly create, raise, and wave, showing which province or city they represent. The song is also an ode to Filipinos around the world that work their fingers to the bone.

Consequently, the Bandera or flag is a symbolism of the differences of the Slap Armies and finding common ground in the music of Slapshock, and that is how powerful the music they create.

Slapshock continues to set the bar high and for more than 2 decades they never fail to give us solid performances as they always wear their hearts on their sleeves every time they go up on stage.

Following up on their 22nd year in the OPM industry, the band finally launched their music video for ‘BANDERA’ with the special participation of their beloved Slap Armies.

This leads up to Slapshock’s BANDERA TOUR 2019. See you all at Slapshock’s tour this year, sabay sabay nating awitin at itaas ang Bandera!

Watch the new music video on their official Facebook page:

Listen to ‘BANDERA’ on Spotify and iTunes.

Fatboy Slim set to sizzle Cove Manila on April 12

English DJ and record producer Fatboy Slim, a legend in the party music scene, is set to sizzle at Cove Manila this April 12, 2019. The show will be presented by the IKON Urban Music Festival series.

Southeast Asia’s newest entertainment mecca Cove Manila has brought unforgettable lifetime experiences to its guests through hot music acts, unique themed parties, and exceptional service. With a sprawling indoor beach club and night club space, luxury cabanas, a butterfly-shaped swimming pool, and stunning views of the Manila Bay, this two-in-one party hub is truly the best place to let your hair down for a great time.

To bring more heat to the summer, the club is proud to host “Ikon Presents: Fatboy Slim at Cove Manila,” the season’s hottest event for the metro’s party lovers. The timeless English musician—real name Norman Quentin Cook—first made waves as the bassist for the 1980’s indie-rock band Housemartins, before going on to form the Brighton-based Beats International. The mid-1990’s saw the birth of his most iconic persona as Fatboy Slim, churning out hits such as “Praise You,” “Weapon of Choice,” “The Rockafeller Skank,” and “Wonderful Night”.

Collaborations with a multitude of music and cultural icons including David Byrne, the Beastie Boys, Spike Jonze, Macy Gray, and Christopher Walken earned Fatboy Slim distinctions such as six awards in the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards, two Brit Awards, and the Guinness World Record for the most top 40 hits under different names.

In the recent years, Fatboy Slim has concentrated on DJ gigs over producing records, traveling the world for full-house venues across Europe, and this year, in Asia right at Cove Manila. His own brand of “Party Acid House” music, complemented by enthralling audio-visual productions, make for unique shows that guests will be unlikely to forget soon.

His April 12 show will start at 10:30PM kicking off with a special first act—and it’s bound to be one for the books at Southeast Asia’s largest, first-of-its-kind, state-of-the-art indoor beach club and night club!

Cove Manila is the state-of-the-art party paradise within Okada Manila, the country’s ultimate destination for world-class entertainment. For more information on tickets and upcoming events, visit, like Cove Manila on Facebook, and follow @covemanila on Twitter and Instagram.
