Fans of local hard rock and heavy metal do not have to wait any longer as leading lifestyle clothing brand Macbeth Philippines brings its first grand production of the year in the form of the launch of its official artist CHELSEA ALLEY.
Macbeth Presents: Chelsea Alley – 1st Strike will be the band’s first official public appearance after being formed at the height of the pandemic in 2020. Happening this April 29th, 2022, at The Elements at Eton Centris, everyone is invited to the biggest and loudest rock show of 2022 as the event is 100% free admission to all. It will also feature three up and coming opening acts, namely popular pop-punk outfit SNAKEFIGHT, Baguio-based hard rock act DIVINA, and the dazzling CARISSA (aka Carissa Ramos) who are surefire musical superstars-in-the-making, and who will definitely pump-up the crowd and warm-up the stages for the evening’s salvo of gloriously heavy music. Incidentally, bassist Jose Siscar of local female-fronted modern metal act EVEN and PHILIA – another local heavy rock act featuring celebrity Arci Muñoz on vocals – will be handling live bass duties for the show.
CHELSEA ALLEY, composed of the surviving members of Philippine heavy metal legends SLAPSHOCK – guitarist Lean Ansing and drummer Chi Evora, joined by guitarist Ariel Lumanlan (currently also of ARCADIA fame and formerly of CHICOSCI), and vocalist John Borja, a seasoned live performer and a one-time contender to front international rock superstars STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, released their debut single “Heneral” last Christmas of 2021. The track is a heartfelt-yet-pummeling tribute to the late Slapshock frontman and their dear friend Jamir Garcia.
Brought by the band’s loyal fanbase’s excitement to see their first live performance, Chelsea Alley: 1st Strike promises to be nothing short of amazing and ground-breaking for both veteran and new fans of the collective and of the genre in general. It will indeed be a rock show that is one for the books.
