The Fray expects a wild crowd tonight at the Big Dome
“We are doing this because we have something to say” “each one of us has been committed to each other” these what the band said when they’re asked why they’re still together during their press conference yesterday at the Crowne Plaza
It took them nearly 10 years before planning to do a concert in the Philippine and after waiting for 6 months, The Fray is ready to take the Manila stage tonight at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. The Fray, sat down with Philippine Concerts and other members of the press before heading to their Meet and Greet/CD signing session.
Many of us has started hearing of a band called The Fray when “How to Save a Life” became somewhat of an anthem in American TV shows, most specifically in Grey’s Anatomy. I’ve never actually gotten into that show, but the TV station insisted on using that song as the official background music for the show’s commercial which irrevocably played every 15 minutes. Strangely though, it never got into my nerves like all the other repetitive mainstream music. If anything, it had a sort of soothing effect.
Their third album “Scars and Stories” was produced by Brendan O’Brien, who has worked with Bruce Springsteen and Pearl Jam, and features the single “Heartbeat.“We’ve been fans of Brendan’s work for years and he’s produced some of our favorite bands,” Joe said. Isaac Slade said that all songs on their third album are on purpose. Including deluxe edition 4 songs are city inspired like “Munich” “Rainy Zurich”, “Boulder To Birmingham” and “Streets of Philadelphia”. Surprisingly, they want a flavor of OPM to add on their music as they want to work with General Luna when the band asked who they want to collaborate with.
The band is expecting that Manila will be their wildest crowd yet as Dave said “You are the most outgoing in Southeast Asian bunch”
