MANILA — Eraserheads fans are now counting on the Philippines’ Fab 4 reuniting, after Vice-President Leni Robredo announced running for president in the 2022 elections.

Eraserheads frontman Ely Buendia earlier said the condition for a possible reunion would be if Robredo were to seek the highest position in the country.

“Pag tumakbo si Leni,” Buendia tweeted in September, in response to a fan asking if there is chance that the members would come together again.

Robredo did announce her bid for president on Thursday, prompting many Eraserhads fans to follow up with Buendia about his earlier statement.

As of writing, Buendia has yet to address the fresh clamor for his reunion with band mates Buddy Zabala, Marcus Adoro, and Raimund Marasigan.

The Eraserheads disbanded in 2002 with Buendia’s departure, after 13 years.
