Filipino indie pop/alternative rock band, Orange and Lemons, will have a reunion concert in 2020. The original members of the OPM band were Clem Castro, known as Clementine, the guitarist and singer-songwriter of the band, Ace del Mundo (drummer), JM del Mundo (bass), and Mcoy Fundales (second vocalist) who exited the band in 2007. Their music genre is generally alternative rock, indie pop, and experimental music. They popularized the soundtrack of reality-TV show Pinoy Big Brother, “Pinoy Ako”, “Umuwi Ka Na Baby”, “Yakap Sa Dilim”, “Hanggang Kailan”, and a lot more.
The reunion concert was announced by Clem Castro during a Christmas Tree lighting event in Festival Mall, Alabang. In an interview, Clem said, “We might do a concert, since we all back together, Both locals and hopefully international tours to promote the album.“ The singer-songwriter also expressed his sentiments regarding their disbansing back in 2007 due to musical differences. “Kami rin naman na-miss namin ang music, ‘yun nga lang siyempre hindi na katulad ng dati, times are changing, wala na rin ‘yung dati naming miyembro may bago kaming members, so may mga changes.” He also added that they are glad about the positive response and acceptance of their music by fans.
The band reformed as a trio in July 2017 releasing the single, “Lovers Go, Lovers Come”. On December 2018, Orange and Lemons added a new member, Jared Nerona for keyboards. They released their first Tagalog song after 12 years, “Pag-ibig Sa Tabing-Dagat”. And because of the positive reviews and approval from fans, Clem wanted to continue their legacy. “We want to protect our legacy, we want to preserve our songs, our production, kaya nga ‘yung first album namin, niri-record namin lahat ulit so ni-release ulit namin as part of 15th years ng album.“
Meanwhile, Orange and Lemons will release an upcoming single, “Ikaw Ang Aking Tahanan”, on December 6 before the much-awaited reunion concert.
