PULP continues their 20-year legacy with the latest issue about the local scene

Team Manila Concert Junkies
Since the release of its very first issue in December 1999, PULP Magazine has made it a mission to promote and bring local music to the forefront. PULP is proud of its legacy in covering local artists and in publishing compelling stories and photographs that would reach their fans.

Now celebrating its 20th year in print, PULP Magazine seeks to continue this legacy with its latest, Issue No. 202—out now at major bookstores and online through pulp.ph.

With the larger chunk of this issue dedicated to our very own pool of talents, Issue No. 202 presents a feature lineup that highlights the diversity of our local music scene—from Indie to Metal, from Pop to Punk Rock, from veterans to fresh acts.

On the back-to-back covers are artists that are genres and generations apart: Unique Salonga proves to be today’s most promising young artist, and WilaBaliW strikes gold with the release of their long-awaited album, Aurum.

Back inside PULP Magazine are noise-makers RIOT! who give us the very best of local punk rock with their highly-anticipated full-length album, The Best of RIOT!, as well as indie mainstays UDD who, through fragmented conversations, take us through their best album yet—UDD.
PULP also brings you interviews with Catfight, Kiyo, syd hartha, Acel Van Ommen, and more proudly Homegrown acts.

Indeed, throughout two decades and now with over 200 issues printed, PULP’s persistent promotion of local music has not ceased. But while this issue features the best in today’s local music scene, it also features plenty of exclusive content and interviews with international artists.

PULP Issue No. 202 brings you an exclusive interview with long-time Canadian rock band Sum 41, along with a preview of the highly-anticipated show of emo/pop-punk trio Tiny Moving Parts.

And last but not the least, in this issue are exclusive recaps of PULP Live World’s recent shows: how After the Burial kicked off the countdown to PULP SUMMER SLAM XX: Judgment Day, how Luke Holland gave us one hell of an experience as he showcased his talent behind the kit, and how The Maine made us all OK again during their first solo show in Manila since 2012.

PULP Magazine Issue No. 202 is available for P250.00 at major bookstores nationwide and online (for online orders, send an e-mail to [email protected]).

Live Loud and be proud of local music. Here’s to 20 years of PULP Magazine, and 20 years more of providing the best printed music coverage in the Philippines.
