LETTER DAY STORY RELEASES NEW EP “BREAKAWAY”

Letter Days Story is now riding high on the success of their latest single “Save Me”.  Gaining a steady stream of airplay in tastemaker stations like 89.9 Magic, RX 93.1, and Jam 88.3,  “Save Me” captured the attention of the hip mainstream  audience that has always been craving for new and original OPM band music.  Letter Day Story attracted a new wave of followers, particularly in their social media streams, venting out their clamour to hear more songs from LDS.  Hence, the  EP “Breakaway” is now released. ‘Breakaway’ consists of six tracks – including ‘Save Me’ – ‘Smile’, ‘Breakaway’, Ikaw at Ako’, Hinahanap’, and ‘The Hero Within’ – the last track having been featured on AXN Channel where LDS are ambassadors.

The release of Letter Day Story’s digital single “Save Me” last August was a pivotal point  in their career as recording artists.  They’ve  had their share of sophomore jitters inspite of their current stature.  They’ve been together as a band for over ten years,  won the grand prize in a prestigious band competition, released their debut EP “Sulat Araw Kwento” in 2009; released their debut album “Sama-Sama” in 2010; and are signed and managed by Sony Music Philippines — yet, LDS opted to test the waters once again with “Save Me”.    The remarkable response by their loyal fans and new set of “likers” also compelled them to release an official music video for “Save Me”, which is now airing on MYX Philippines and other music video shows.

The EP “Breakaway” is out now in digital formats,  available for mobile and online downloading at major online sites like iTunes (click HERE).  CD formats are also available at leading record stores.

SOMEBODY ‘SAVE ME’ – LETTER DAY STORY TO THE RESCUE

‘Letter’ because the messages of our songs are in a way, being ‘sent’ out. ‘Story’ because we write about people’s lives. ‘Day’ because the stories are usually based on day-to-day experiences.

Such is the genesis of band Letter Day Story’s chosen name. If that’s any indication of how rich their music could be, then you’re not mistaken. Letter Day Story (LDS) is much more, so let the storytelling in music begin.

Letter Day Story is comprised of Aldrick ‘Dex’ Yu (vocals), John Oliver ‘Oli’ Agustin (bass), Chrisanthony ‘Not’ Vinzons (guitars), and Emil Joseph ‘Ej’ Arabit (drums) — all of them studied at the Conservatory of Music at University of Sto. Tomas. In November 2002, they decided to become a true rock ‘n’ roll band. In such a short time, LDS managed to book a gig, grabbing the attention of new listeners and gaining fans. With patience, teamwork, and a lot of practice, LDS was becoming a musical force to be reckoned with. Six years later, LDS joined Nescafe Soundskool and they won the grand prize. And in two years, the band wrote, recorded, and produced songs; LDS launched their first album ‘Sama Sama’ released under Sony Music Entertainment Philippines

‘We learned a lot along the way’, lead singer/chief songwriter Dex Yu says. ‘From people posing as managers to get their hands on your music for free, to rejection from record labels and gigs that don’t pay – we’ve seen it all’.

But instead of getting jaded and giving up, Letter Day Story pushed through. They considered their debut album ‘Sama Sama’ and its tracks the ‘products of instinct and intellect’. With producer Jonathan Ong of Sonic State Audio at the helm, the record was given a grander aural dimension.

Even with LDS’ constant rise to rock-dom and a slew of admiring fans, they don’t consider themselves as sellouts. In fact, they still embrace the underground scene. Letter Day Story are equal-opportunity musicians – they can collaborate with the most celebrated artists – Gloc-9 (‘Martilyo’), Yeng Constantino (‘Kung Maibabalik’), and Jaq Dionisio of band Kiss Jane (‘Isang Umaga’) – but they never forget their humble beginnings. Letter Day Story is truly moving up.

What’s next for Letter Day Story? A new single titled ‘Save Me’, written by bassist Oli Agustin in an hour and produced in just a day last July.

Oli’s inspiration for ‘Save Me’ was a dream he had where he was roaming the streets, searching for his loved ones, but to no avail. Here was the world, ending, yet Oli is alone and all he wants is to be with people he loves the most. But even with such bleak origins, Oli is keeping positive. ‘In spite of the world nearing its end, even when everyone has left you… HOPE will guide you’.

‘Save Me’ is the first single off of Letter Day Story’s upcoming EP ‘Breakaway’ under Sony Music Entertainment Philippines that will be released later this month. ‘Breakaway’ consists of six tracks – including ‘Save Me’ – ‘Smile’, ‘Breakaway’, Ikaw at Ako’, Hinahanap’, and ‘The Hero Within’ – the last track having been featured on AXN Channel where LDS are ambassadors.

Letter Day Story spin tales through their music and they want you to listen and spin with them.
