After putting in time at the studio following Pamagdoy, their five-city tour of the Visayas last April -- The Camerawalls is packing up their instruments again and following that irresistible desire to travel, this time to the backpacker's haven of Southeast Asia. "Wanderlust: The Camerawalls South-East Asian Backpack Tour" kicks off in a dezpedida ("fare thee well") gig in the Philippines, then rolls on the offbeat path to a string of watering holes in Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand -- each locale a vital component to the Philippine-based band's musical odyssey.
Indie pop band The Camerawalls is releasing its latest digital single -- "Wanderlust" -- today, August 8, in anticipation of their very first regional tour, dubbed "Wanderlust: The Camerawalls South-East Asian Backpack Tour," later this month. In an unprecedented move, the band will be donating seventy-five percent (75%) of the digital sales of the single for the months of August and September (roughly the duration of their tour) to aid victims of the recent floods in the Philippines, most especially the waterlogged capital of Metro Manila and its outlying areas.
The Camerawalls performs this April in five cities in the Visayas – one city for every year that the band has been making music. Dubbed “Pamagdoy” (a word that means “wandering” or “peregrination” in both Cebuano and Ilongo), the tour is produced and presented by Lilystars Records in partnership with Panay News, the largest newspaper in the Visayas.
