Quite a lot of folks know how much I love the band called Twisted Halo. And, as they say, some good things never last.
Vin's message on the Twisted Halo Yahoogroup:
ey folks =) musta na kayo? hope all's well.
it's Twisted Halo's 7th year. i started with an idea and a couple of songs. jal and ichot joined me. nag-jam kami "Hiram". yun na yun. sumama si jason at joey. umalis si ichot..pumasok si monmon...tapos umalis si al..pumasok si buddy..umalis si monmon..pumasok si abe..umalis si buddy..pumasok si nix..gulo no hahahaha pero sarap kasi daming nagawang mga kanta.
dami na rin nangyari. one EP, one full length album, Admit One is now on its 5th year, VIVA (hahaha), davao, cagayan de oro, baguio, cebu, olongapo, batangas, lotsa great gigs (EDSA Dos!!! at marami pang iba!) and fond memories, having played with bands we've admired and respected. at sobra astig na nakilala ko ang ilan sa inyo dito sa list - kayo na nagtyaga at nagmahal sa tugtugan at sa banda. astig kayo sobra. kung maaari ko lang kayong akapin lahat ng isa-isa para pakita ang pasasalamat ko eh gagawin ko...kaso hirap ata gawin yun
been thinking bout how i'm gonna say this to you guys for the past couple of nights...but yeah there's no way around it. simplehan ko na lang haha
magpapaalam na po ako sa Twisted Halo. nag-usap na kami a couple of weeks ago. and my bandmates understood (i hope haha) and know why i had to leave. ayun. whether or not tutuloy and Twisted Halo is all up to jason joey nix and abe. ayun.
salamat sa inyong lahat. mahal na mahal ko kayo! salamat sa lahat ng sumuporta sa Halo. kakatuwa kasi i've met a number of really wonderful people because of the band. =)
