Moonstar88 is a Filipino rock band formed in Manila, Philippines.

History[edit]

Moonstar88 was formed in 1999. They were signed to Sony BMG by 2007, and later to Ivory Records in 2012.[citation needed] Previously under Backbeat Management, they are now with Soupstar Management under Darwin Hernandez which also handles other bands including Sandwich, Callalily, 6cyclemind, Pedicab.[citation needed]

As of April 2008, they have released three albums, Popcorn, Press to Play and Todo Combo, and collaborated on one track, Pag-Ibig Ko Sa Iyo, found on RoK On! Music Inspired By Ragnarok Online. They also performed a rendition of the APO song, "Panalangin" which they recorded and was added to the tribute album for the band, Apo Hiking Society, on the Kami nAPO Muna album. The band has also recorded a cover of Yano's famous song, Senti.[citation needed]

The band's newest album “This Year” which took two and a half years to finish, is under Ivory Music and contains 8 tracks, including a special track featuring Parokya Ni Edgar’s Chito Miranda and an acoustic version of “Migraine”.[citation needed]
