Team Manila Concert Junkies
After a thirteen long year wait, renowned post-hardcore legends have at last returned to the Philippines. Saosin, established in 2003, swiftly gained recognition within the international music scene for their heartfelt, soul-searching lyrics and powerful instrumentation, leaving an enduring imprint on the world of rock and roll.

Sharing the stage for this sold-out show was the Thai alternative metal group Defying Decay, founded in 2010 in Bangkok, Thailand by vocalist and guitarist Jay Poom Euarchukiati, guitarist Howard Fang, and drummer Reymaz Khan. Their distinct fusion of metalcore and industrial rock sustained the crowd's energy until the headliners took the spotlight.

Saosin kicked off the night with a high-energy performance of "It's Far Better to Learn" from their self-titled album, followed by "Sleepers," "Lost Symphonies," and "Bury Your Head." They also treated the audience to a captivating rendition of Smashing Pumpkin's hit "Zero" and later presented "Translating The Name '' from their debut EP. What set Saosin apart from previous bands that graced Manila was their exceptional interaction and engagement with their fans, fostering a vibrant atmosphere and a sense of camaraderie between the band and the audience.

To conclude the evening, Saosin delivered their well-known hits, "Seven Years," "Voices," and "You're Not Alone," igniting the crowd with even more excitement. The audience passionately sang along to every song, their voices resounding at the top of their lungs. Saosin not only brought their raw rock and roll essence but also created lasting memories for all in attendance.
