Why General Luna?


When the group was asked the reason why do they call their band as General Luna? Nicole (the lead vocalist) said, "It has nothing to do with General Antonio Luna." It is just a combination of the two words: General (a masculine), and Luna (a feminine). There's a balance of the 2 concepts. They describe their music as a combination of 2 different concepts. Like their music single, "Red Heaven", - a mixture of loud guitar riffs and catchy melodic verses, that expresses the stomach-churning experience of a nightmare.

General Luna Album


General Luna's self-title debut album is attributed to the serious hardwork of various top artists and songwriters:

  3. Ebe Dancel (songwriter from Sugarfree) - he wrote the song, "Maria"
  4. Pakoy Fletchero (Typecast guitarist) - produced "Walang Bintana" and offered very unique drum parts to the masterpiece
  5. Japs Sergio (Rivermaya bassist) - helped produced 2 tracks of the album, "Dala ng Ulan" and "Pagmulat", both have socio-political theme.
  6. Francis Brew Reyes (musician from NU107)
  7. Angee Rozul (multi-awarded recording engineer)
