Save the date for this is the show that we’ve been waiting for is finally happening!
One of the most requested pop-punk acts is coming to Manila for the very first time! The Story So Far Live in Manila is happening at the Skydome, SM City North Edsa on April 15, 2019.
Californian rock band will also be performing with Elder Brother in the country.
Over these recent years, we witnessed a growth in the Philippine community of pop punk fans, coinciding with what people across the globe saw as a “resurgence” of the genre.
The burgeoning scene, which collectively rallied to “Defend Pop Punk” – a battle cry we must attribute to our friends from Man Overboard – stormed fans that had an ear for a newer wave of bands, and The Story So Far are among those that found themselves at the forefront of this movement. This earned them a growing number of fans not just in North America or Europe, but in Asia as well.
Who is The Story So Far?
The American rock band was formed in Walnut Creek, California in 2007. Their name is taken from the New Found Glory song, “The Story So Far”. The band consists of Parker Cannon on vocals, Kevin Geyer and Kevin Ambrose on guitar, Ryan Torf on drums, and Kelen Capener on bass.

To pursue a college degree, Kevin Ambrose parted ways with the band in 2010 and he was replaced by William Levy.
With their first two albums, Under Soil and Dirt (2011) and What You Don’t See (2013), they made their mark, with an impact that had them hailed as the torchbearers of the current pop punk scene.
But with their latest album, The Story So Far managed to push the genre and transcend its limits to breathe new life into their music. Released in September 2018 under Pure Noise Records, Proper Dose is the band’s long-awaited fourth full-length album, coming three years since their fan-favorite self-titled release.
The five-piece are currently on tour in support of their fourth studio album, Proper Dose. Manila is the band’s only Southeast Asian stop so far, along with confirmed tour dates in Japan and Australia.
“We’re just trying to grow and become a real band. There are a lot of people out there who still deny us, because of the sub-genre we’ve been locked in for the past few years, but I think that with this record, those people can’t deny us anymore. They can’t deny us being a good band, being a raw and real band, doing what we want and attempting to be better,” Parker Cannon tells Kerrang!
