Based in Winnipeg, Canada, the exciting power pop punk trio - The 12/21 - was originally formed in Manila, Philippines. A newly signed artist of Black Sheep Records and Viva Records Philippines. This young, energetic, and performance driven, numerically-named act consists of three talented brothers: Roman Maceda (vox/guitars), and twins Rico Maceda (bass/vox) and Roque Maceda (drums).
The Maceda brothers simply carried on with their strong passion in music when they came to Canada. Their sound is an exciting blend of precision, modern rock n' roll tunes with a striking power pop punk presentation. They cite these artists as their musical influences: Green Day, and Blink-182, The Police, and Foo Fighters but there's more going on with The 12/21! It's something you'll have to hear to understand for yourself!
This year, The 12/21 recently signed a record label deal in the Philippines under Blacksheep Records and Viva Records, since then they've released a single and been featured on CBC Manitoba. Back in early 2020, the band had a successful tour of Philippines, from playing well known venues to performing on live television in Manila. The brothers won the 2019 Jim Beam National Talent Search in Canada and performed at Canadian Music Week in Toronto soon after that. They’ve released their debut EP entitled, Hello Yellow independently the same year. The Brothers also opened for Arnel Pineda of Journey, performed at 92.1 CITI FM, appeared on The Village Idiots' live series, Live At The Roslyn in Winnipeg. The trio has been featured on the cover of University Of Winnipeg's The Uniter Fiver Music Issue 2018.
