Hijo, the newest band to hit the local music scene with some familiar faces, signed a record deal with MCA Music (an affiliate of Universal Music Group). It is composed of ex-Bamboo members Nathan Azarcon, now on vocals and bass, Vic Mercado on drums, Ira Cruz, Radioactive Sago Project's Junji Lerma on guitars, and Jay Orduña on keyboard.
"We are so glad we found a label that shares the same vision we have. We found a new home in MCA," Nathan said.
Hijo joins MCA Music's roster of the Philippines' top bands which includes Urbandub, Franco and Chicosci. The label is also home to top international bands like Maroon5, All Time Low, Superheavy, Neon Trees, among others.
MCA Music will soon release their debut album, which the band describes as "Kung Fu Rock." It will also include the single "Tamalee" which charted on MYX music channel.
