Hello! We have a lot of great news to report since our last update. First, we welcome guitarist Venj Gatmaitan to the band! He is a very talented musician and we are very happy for him to join us! This decision came shortly after our first comeback gig at 70s Bistro last December 10 where we invited him to session for us on lead guitars.
Incidentally, Venj happens to be one of the collaborators in my solo project Dragonfly Collector where he did excellent work on electric and upright bass guitars on all the recorded tracks. You will soon hear his contribution to The Camerawalls in the new single we are working on.
We are hitting the studio this week to record a brand new single with the working title “Boys In The Backroom.” Expect it to drop sometime on February with a grittier sound and approach to songwriting.

2017 will prove to be an important year for us not only with our comeback in the music scene, or a planned single release, but more so with a major concert that will happen on March 15 at the Music Museum. Hear our modest catalog of songs reimagined live and arranged with a 16-piece String Orchestra! A milestone in the making!

Aptly titled “Above The Weather” and with reference to sociopolitical upheaval, we wish to remain incessantly positive despite of everything and literally face the music instead.
Independently produced by Lilystars Records, this concert will also feature Filipino-Australian singer-songwriter Bryan Estepa, our brother musician from the label with a new album under his belt entitled “Every Little Thing” as part of his Philippine tour.
We also recently released a 2016 Remastered Edition CDs of our 2008 debut album “Pocket Guide To The Otherworld” and as a treat, signed copies will be given away for free to the first 30 ticket buyers. Early bird tickets are now available online at http://thecamerawalls.eventbrite.com.

And so it happened. It was partly intimate, partly nostalgic. It also felt like the four-year inactivity never happened. A little rusty yes, but nothing a few immersion in our rehearsal space can't fix. But most importantly, we had fun. Seeing old friends/fans (some of them flew to Manila), brother bands who supported, meant a lot to us. We played to a full house despite the busy December weekend. And we debuted a new guitarist (who is actually the bassist of Dragonfly Collector) to back us up, after learning my guitar stylings as well as that of Johnny Marr's with only a few weeks notice. It was indeed a wonderful evening and we are really glad to be back.
This is it folks! Our one and only gig for 2016. We are headlining The POP Shoppe on December 10 at 70s Bistro!
Sharing the stage are musician friends with past and upcoming releases under Lilystars Records including The Gentle Isolation, We Are Imaginary (formerly Your Imaginary Friends), The Bernadettes, Bing Austria & The Flippin Soul Stompers and newcomer from Dumaguete named Meagan Trees.
A lot has asked for a reissue and we are more than happy to bring you back our debut album in CD format. Take pleasure in this wonderful 8th anniversary reissue cover art illustrated and designed by Justine Basa.
This reissue will feature remastered versions of the album including the bonus track “The Sight Of Love” and is scheduled for release on December 10, 2016.
