MANILA - It looks like popular local rock band Kamikazee has decided not to disband after all.

In a follow-up video to their earlier announcement, frontman Jay Contreras clarified on Thursday that the band will only be taking a hiatus starting on 2016, contrary to what many thought.

"Gusto lang po namin linawin na hindi po kami magdi-disband. Magpapahinga lang po kami simula next year," he said.

 

The band earlier announced their split in a video uploaded last Sunday. The group even made it to a point to assure fans that an internal conflict was not the reason for the break up.

"Bale ngayon, nagdesisyon po kaming lima na ngayong 2015, ito na muna po ang huling taon na magkakasama tayo, dahil gusto naming subukan 'yung buhay buhay sa labas ng banda," Contreras said.

Kamikazee, which is best known for this such as "Narda" and "Chiksilog," is composed of Contreras, Jomal Linao and Led Tuyay on guitars, Jason "Puto" Astete on bass, and Allan "Bords" Burdeos on drums.
