‘ABKD’ marks the pop group’s first release of the year, following their remake of pop rock band Maldita’s ‘Porque’ in late October, and ‘Kasmala’ before that in August.

‘Kasmala’ received a music video that touched upon themes of colonialism and bigotry, serving as a rebuke to modern-day racism and drawing heavy influence from the #StopAsianHate campaign.

Prior to ‘Kasmala’, the group released a slew of singles – including debut track ‘kbye’, ‘Sandigan’ and ‘Tibay ‘Yan’ with Inigo Pascual – throughout the year.

Alamat formed in 2020, and consists of eight members Taneo, Mo, Jao, Tomas, R-Ji, Valfer, Gami and Alas. With each member hailing from a different part of the Philippines, the group have made it a point to sing in seven different Filipino languages in their songs.
