Hello. The three of us are still fine and alive. The band decided that we’ll be having a break from all the things that we’ve been doing together for the past few years. We will be busy pursuing some other personal interests and take a needed time off as a band. There are no plans to release anything or perform for the time being. With that being said, there are more things out there that we should pay attention to and remember that living itself is a blessing. IV OF SPADES Badjao. Blaster. Zild.
“With that being said, there are more things out there that we should pay attention to and remember that living itself is a blessing,” they ended.
Prior to this, Benitez launched a solo album called, “Homework Machine”.
IV of Spades are known for their singles ‘Hey Barbara’, ‘Mundo’, and ‘Come Inside Of My Heart’. In 2018, former vocalist and frontman Unique Salonga left the band to go solo.
