ENCORE FEATURE: December Avenue – Why They’re Such A Fan Favorite
December Avenue is an ALT-ROCK band popular for their powerful HUGOT songs. You know what we’re talking about. After all, they’ve been rocking it out with fans for a decade now!
Composed of Zel Bautista, Jem Manuel, Don Gregorio, Jet Danao and Gelo Cruz December Avenue has been a fan favorite, and our dat can prove that to you. But for now, we’ve rounded up four reasons why we love this band!
1. Dreamy paper airplanes. Need we say more?
We’re kidding. But this was something they did for their FIRST MAJOR CONCERT last 2016.
And just, bands with LIT aesthetics? They’re definitely 100% on our book. We mean, just look at the paper airplanes perfectly matching their song ‘Eroplanong Papel’ on the tweet below!

2. These peeps are witty AF.
Kahit mag masters ka pa, ang mahalaga apelyido ko ang dugtong sa pangalan mo. 😏

We do love it when our idols make us giggle!
3. They are a bunch of relatable HUGOT KINGS.
December Avenue likes to talk about life and love on their songs making it truly relatable for us fans!
My mornings always consist of pain & hugot induced by listening to both highkey and lowkey tagos kind of opm music i.e. kathang isip by ben&ben, burn out by sugar free (just because the version of 3D is not in spotify), eroplanong papel by december avenue and more.

Ever wonder why their songs just hit you right up to your core? Well here’your answer:
Every morning I read messages from people sharing their stories about love, life, & heartbreak; People who are suffering from depression, struggling from their studies, stressed from work, single parents, hopeless romantics and the broken ones.

That is just so sweet!
4. They are ADVOCATES of MENTAL HEALTH.
One of the December Avenue songs that appealed to us was their song ‘BULONG’. The music video for ‘Bulong’ tackles about mental health issues with one of its characters, in hopes to promote awareness to their audience. It also demonstrates unconditional love from someone dealing with a person who is struggling.
“Ako’y alipin ng pag-ibig mo / Handang ibigin ang isang tulad mo”
The band plans to continue doing so with their future projects, as they understand its importance to their listeners. KUDOS to you, guys!
Love December Avenue as well? Listen to their song ASAP!
