The Eraserheads just announced the future release of Ultraelectromagneticpop! on 180 gram vinyl, allowing fans to listen to the band's debut album in analog format. Available in early 2019, there will only be 2,500 copies of the vinyl records to be produced.
This comes on the heels of the release of the digitally remastered edition of Ultraelectromagneticpop!, the band's debut album which came out 25 years ago. Mastered by Bernie Grundman, the album became available for streaming on Spotify on November 23.
Yesterday, the now-disbanded group's lead guitarist Marcus Adoro posted on his Instagram account about the impending announcement.
"ERASERHEADS ANNOUNCEMENT: There will be an official Announcement tomorrow December 7, 2018. In the a.m.," the art card said.
In the caption, Marcus wrote, "OYAN! Now here's an official announcement. P.S. Hindi ako mag aanounce bukas. Abangan nyo sa social medyas ng da boys."
The iconic band's followers stood by for the news, with some hoping it would mean another reunion for the group that brought us hits like "Toyang," "Ligaya," "Magasin," and "Ang Huling El Bimbo."
In the Philippines, their last formal reunion was on March 7, 2009, in the concert dubbed as The Final Set.
Eraserheads then gave a surprise performance in 2016 during an event for a telecom company.
Many fans thought the band would once again reunite for the UAAP Finals of the men's basketball team this week, as the UP Fighting Maroons got its first finals run in 32 years.
Eraserheads was formed while the band's members were all undergrad students at UP Diliman.
On Monday, December 3, the band's drummer Raymund Marasigan uploaded a video of him together with Buddy, Marcus, and an unidentified blond guitarist playing the song "Minsan," inspired by the Kalayaan dormitory in the Diliman campus.
Raymund tweeted, "praktis before Game 2."
Eraserheads frontman Ely Buendia however crushed the fans' hopes when he denied being the guy in the video.
""Whoever that blond guy in the video is, it's not me. I wish both UAAP teams the best of luck, though," Ely tweeted.
