Sony Music recording artist Pupil marks its fourth year as a band this 2009. The band will celebrate this milestone by releasing its album, Wildlife: Special Edition.
It is Wildlife made even wilder, now in remastered form. It still includes the massive hits "Sala," "Monobloc," "Disconnection Notice" and "Teacher's Pet." What makes this more exciting are bonuses such as demos, videos and a live EP. You'll hear the songs in different phases, like you're watching a makeover show. In this makeover show though, you can prefer "before" to "after," and you can change your mind in between. The album also features their latest single "Different Worlds."
Formed in mid-2005 by Ely Buendia (vocals, guitars), Yan Yuzon (guitars) and Dok Sergio (bass), they were joined by veteran drummer Wendell Garcia in 2007. Their band name "Pupil" was agreed on following a shortlist of about 300 possibilities. It was only after Ely stumbled upon the term in a medical book did he realize that the term pupil refers to "the black circular opening in the center of the iris of the eye, through which light passes to the retina."
The band's big break came also in 2005 with the release of their debut album Beautiful Machines, which included the singles "Nasaan Ka?," "Dianetic" and "Dulo ng Dila." The second album Wildlife was named 2008 Album of The Year at the NU Rock Awards which also honored them as Artist Of The Year, Producer of the Year (Pupil and Jerome Velasco), Drummer of the Year (Garcia) and Best Music Video (Monobloc).
Join Pupil as they celebrate their fourth anniversary and at the same time be the first to grab a copy of Wildlife: Special Edition on Friday, July 10, 7 pm at the Skydome of SM North EDSA, Quezon City. Expect a different Pupil performance as they fused their rock and acoustics sets for the fans. Audience members also have the chance to win prizes courtesy of sponsors.
Wildlife: Special Edition is out in CDs under Sony Music.
