This Is What Happened at Launch of The Vamps' 'Night and Day'

What a day!
IMAGE MCA Music Inc.

British band (and eye candies!), The Vamps, just released their third studio album entitled Night and Day. The album comes in two parts: Night and Day. The Night album includes a disc with 12 new songs, including their singles "All Night" featuring Matoma and "Middle of the Night" featuring Martin Jensen, and a second disc with their concert at London's O2 Arena.


To celebrate the release of Brad, James, Tristan, and Connor's new album, an album launch was organized by MCA Music, TriNoma, Astrovision, and Stat Photobooth last July 15. The event was hosted by Martin Javier and attended by The Vamps' biggest fans aka the Vamily, as well MCA Music Artist, Mika Gorospe. The event's set up consisted of bean bags, balloons, and small wooden tables which was totally IG-worthy.

There were games in which the participants either had to arrange the lyrics of the song or guess the video. The winners in each game received signed pictures of the band (OMG!). There were also three raffles during the program wherein winners got either a signed poster or signed "All Night" EP, talk about lucky!


Aside from The Vamps' music blasting from the speakers, two MCA Music artists were also present to entertain the Vamily with music. The Voice Kids Philippines' former contestants Kyle Echarri and Edray Teodoro both performed their individual singles. 14-year-old Kyle also did a cover of "All Night" by The Vamps which made fans swoon. After the event, we got the chance to speak to Kyle and Edray and ask about their music and of course, The Vamps.


We first interviewed Kyle (who was really tall!) and asked about his first single, "Our Moment," which he also performed during the launch. We asked what the song was all about and he said, "I think the message really is just to believe in that one moment that you're having; forget all your problems that you're having and just enjoy that moment." 

Why did Kyle decide to join The Voice Kids Philippines? He says it was supposedly just a joke when his aunt told him to audition. Kyle says he told his aunt he'd audition if his aunt would come with him and his aunt said okay. "We had to wake up at 4am to audition, and thank God I auditioned which was very awesome because I didn't think I had a voice," Kyle continued.

Of course we had to ask Kyle what he liked about The Vamps since he says he's a fan of the band. He says he loves how the boys ‘are all a band' and it's not just fake voices, he adds that ‘All Night' is his favorite song. What is Kyle's message to his fans? "KYLEnatics, you guys have always been there for me ever since the start and I hope tuloy-tuloy pa rin ‘yun. [And] I love you guys so much."


After Kyle's interview, we then asked Edray about her third single, "Wala Lang." She says, "Parang dito, ako naman po yung gumagawa ng move [comparing the song to her two previous singles "Puedepende" and "Bwelo Lang"], kung kakausapin ko ba siya or ‘wag na lang muna. Parang ‘di ko po maintindihan ‘yung nararamdaman ng puso ko at nung utak ko."


Edray says that ever since she was little, she loved singing but no one really encouraged her to join singing contests. Edray says that joining The Voice Kids was entirely her decision and her parents supported her all throughout.

Edray says she is a fan of The Vamps and shares that her favorite member is the curly-headed cutie, Brad. Her favorite song is "Cecilia" featuring another cutie, Shawn Mendes, and proceeds to sing a few lines from it.

Lastly, we asked Edray what her message to her fans is, "Hey EDRAYnatics, thank you for supporting me all throughout, diyan lang kayo, 'wag kayong magsasawang sumuporta sa 'kin. I'll see you soon, God bless, and I love you so much," she then blows a kiss to the camera.

The Vamps, as well as Edray's self-entitled album, are available at all Astrovision and Astroplus branches nationwide. Go grab a copy of both albums now because there are some good songs on it that will surely end up in your favorite playlist!

4. Verity by Colleen Hoover

While known for Young-Adult Novels such as Slammed and Maybe Someday, Colleen Hoover offers readers a romantic thriller about Lowen Ashleigh, a struggling author who was given the opportunity to finish the three remaining novels of a successful series after its original author, Verity Crawford, suffered an accident and has become immobile. After receiving an invite at the Crawford manor to sort through Verity’s notes, Lowen discovers an unpublished autobiography revealing the truth about Verity. With the eerie atmosphere of having Verity confined in her own home, and who is seemingly aware of her surroundings, Lowen is certain Verity is not what she appears to be.


5. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

A mind-bending science fiction thriller from the best-selling author of Wayward Pines – Dark Matter is packed with the concept of the Multiverse and the philosophy of existentialism. The novel follows an ordinary Physics professor, Jason Dessen, who was looking forward to dinner with his family while walking the streets of Chicago. The next thing he knew, he was being held at gunpoint – by a man wearing a mask – and injected with an unknown drug and blacks out. When he regains consciousness, he learns that the world he woke up to was different from the world he knew.


Here's a poem I wrote a while back reflecting on what it's like over-rationalize a simple thing like crushing on a dude -- hence, the title "Scientific Method"

Scientific Method

You were a phenomenon I cannot wrap my head around

When I first met you, my heart forgot to make its signature sound

And it's overwhelming, your presence;

And underwhelming, so science will be the only language I'll hide in-- For now.


At first glance, I notice your top button unbuttoned,

and your shirt fully cotton

Complete with a smile as nervous as me

And a swagger in your step only I can see

Further on, I find your wit to be at a pace

That doesn't leave any space for tension to rise

and it's all too nice

And ridiculous and a bit too suspicious

That this isn't another (well,) circus.


Now, let's take a wild guess,


Oh, but it has to be smart, yes,

That this could lead to something with potential

That this isn't another differential easily solved

With a formula, tried and tested but never evolved


For so long, we've both been independent of any dependent

Keeping our variables fixed and ourselves distracted

With anything, everything,

But not a single thing

Could stop me from pushing this blindly to find its threshold,

Hoping that it's a quantity my hands could still hold

Over hours, days, and weeks

Through minor revisions and tweaks

Then comes the analysis -- that these weren't accidents

So, now I find myself in a conundrum

With the anomaly in a blue shirt right in front of me,

That this had to be processed logically,

But the findings are as follows:

None of which were shallow, so I therefore conclude that it's true,

I therefore conclude that it's you.

Mi Luna: The Light in My Dark Soul Locked in… Alone…

Why do I feel comforted by darkness? Oh cause maybe because… I am a jolly and very enthusiast kid back then. All I know is to have fun, laugh and play. But as I grow older, everything has changed, a lot. I can feel the changes. I know the more I get older, I’m turning to something I’m not. You know what, I just realized I like it even more. And that’s how I turned a monster. A monster to my own self. Always questioning life and even God about the things that are happening with my life. “Do I deserve this?”. Every day was a struggle. “Which mask should I wear now?”. And every night is my judgement time. “Should I still continue with my miserable life?”. This certainly sum up my whole life. I have this mindset since I was young. I can say that my experiences made me like this. I always want to escape, but every time I tried to pick up myself up, there is always shits that pulls me down. And there, I get tired. Hoping that no one would ever see this. As I despise myself as well. What I can do now is to just embraced everything, I just embraced darkness- reflecting my own self.

“Look at the moon, it can shine alone and it can give us light at night.” A line I was keeping in my mind that a friend of mine helps me realize things and been there to fix my path. And there I started seeking for my moon but I do not know which part should I start. As days passed, I started to open up myself. I started to act as what truly inside me. It is very hard at first and there is this time that even the situation got worst. But as I continue exploring with my life, a question pop out on my head “Why did I still get this far?”, I can say that maybe I should do this, maybe I really can do this but it is myself who is holding me back because I’m afraid.

Now as far as I am trying to revive my soul, there I know that many people care. Yes, I learned to open up but not to all, on different situations there are people who can understand me because they have the same situation as I am. I learn to open up as long as they did not force me. I learned to navigate and open up for whom I trusted and at the same time when I am ready. The light that I am seeking is my own understanding and acceptance about myself. My light is myself and I am Mi Luna. So it is not too late to save myself. I have thought that, I should be a survivor and winner. That I should also be the ruler of my own mind and soul. Eliminate the room for darkness and let the light shine through you, that I can say how I earned myself again. Mi Luna’s darkness have turned to spotlight.
