Ten years ago, we here at Tower of Doom launched the Siege Tour 2008. Over the course of three weeks, we took eight bands across thirteen cities and put together one of the craziest independent tours the Philippines has ever seen.

In a time before Facebook and smartphones, we crammed over 80 people (including artists, crew, bouncers, and camera teams) into buses and airplanes and played shows to music fans all over the country. Now, ten years later, we are finally releasing the footage that captured all the insanity both on and off the stage in a series of episodes that will be released exactly ten years to the day that we performed at that city.

EPISODE 11: Bacolod, Negros Occidental (Nov. 14, 2008)

The tour featured eight of Tower of Doom's artists at the time: April Morning Skies, Bloodshedd, Boy Elroy, Cog, Imbue No Kudos, The Out of Body Special, Sin, and Valley of Chrome.

We toured across north and south Luzon and Visayas, playing shows at Lucban, Naga, Lipa, Calamba, Baguio, Dagupan, Olongapo, Bulacan, Cebu, Dumaguete, Bacolod, Iloilo, and Manila.

The tour and these videos would not have been possible if not for the hard work of the Tower of Doom staff, the street teams, the sponsors, and of course, the thousands of fans who came to the shows.
