One of today's hottest bands Sponge Cola are back with their eponymous third album . The carrier single "Puso" is just the right song to re-establish them as a hitmaking band. The new album sees the band explore musical territories that would make the Sponge Cola sound more cohesive, distinct and cohesive.

The band made up of Yael Yuzon (vocals-guitar), Gosh Dilay (bass), Erwin Armovit (lead guitar) and Chris Cantada (drums) released their debut album "Palabas" in 2004 , spawning radio hits like "KLSP," "Gemini," and "Jeepney." Their acoustic live cover of the Madonna classic "Crazy For You" gained popularity among fans and casual listeners after it became an Internet download favorite. Their Platinum-certified second CD "Transit", produced smash singles like the anthemic "Bitiw," "Tuliro," "Movie" and "Pasubali." Sponge Cola were also part of the most successful tribute records to come out recently: The Eraserheads' "Ultraelectromagneticjam" and the Apo Hiking Society's "Kami nAPO Muna" and "Kami nAPO Muna Ulit".
