More than a year after their old drummer’s departure, Sponge Cola has finally found a new member to join them in their musical crusade. Ted Mark “Tmac” Cruz of the Out of Body Special and Happy Meals is officially the band’s new drummer.
“I don’t think people will be surprised.” says Yael Yuzon, the group’s emphatic frontman. “He has already appeared in two of our music videos - "Puso" and ‘Ayt.’”
Prior to Tmac’s arrival, the band spent more than a year playing with different session drummers, until finally committing to Tmac as a new permanent member. As the band fondly puts it, “We’ve known Tmac for a long time now; ever since we’ve been playing the same circuit back in college. Plus, since we all grew up in the same school, the same environment, he really understands where we’re coming from and what we’re all about. He fits right in.”
The Repackaged Version of the band’s self titled album is currently available in all record bars nationwide under Universal Records and features" Puso" (theme song for Agimat), "Ayt!" (Collaboration with Gary V) and the band’s rendition of the classic, "Closer You and I".
