Date with Fate opened up at the recently concluded event by Adopt a Species Program titled “Musika Alay sa Dagat”, a benefit show for the marine wildlife watch of the Philippines. The band was one of the few groups who performed that also included local big name acts in the Indie pop scene like Up Dharma Down, Hidden Nikki, Maude, Imelda, Sound Architects and Ourselves the Elves. The event was held at Cervini Field in Ateneo de Manila University.
The show was the first time the band played with its new line-up, so this was a sort of baptism of fire to the new singer of the band, Cyb Escobar, who took the vocal duties from Paula Alcasid after the latter has now focused mainly on her solo career as a singer/songwriter, and for session keyboardist Alec Padua, who also did back-up vocals.
Here are the clips from the band’s short set. Observers who have heard the band before said it’s now edgier, what can you say about the current line-up?
