Filipino metalcore band Fragments have released their latest single “ALLINSANE”.

In conjunction with their recent signing to The Orchard under Sony Music , the band released the self-produced single last April 12. In a press release sent to Billboard Philippines, the band revealed that the new track tackles a myriad of themes, including “grappling with one’s sanity, confronting inner turmoil, and navigating the tumultuous journey of self-acceptance amidst chaos.” The new song follows their single “Ratrace”, released last September 29, 2023.

Following this, on May 30, the band premiered the single’s accompanying music video, produced by KNYA Collective and directed by Fragments frontman Niko Cezar. Filmed at Point B Studios in Quezon City with b-roll shots from Japan, the video showcases shots of the band performing interspersed with scenes of Cezar navigating the streets of Tokyo. “I intended the video to feature us performing and matching the energy of the song,” shared Cezar in a press statement. “We also took some clips of me acting in the cold streets of Japan last February to put in the video, ’cause our previous music video [for] ‘Heaven’s Gate’ also got a bit of Japan clips in it. So, I thought it could be connected in some way, to have a sense of [a] full circle.”

The brand-new single was accompanied by a month-long tour last April to May that the 5-piece metal up-and-comers curated together. It saw shows in Bacolod, Iloilo, Quezon City, Manila, Marikina, Laguna, Tagaytay, and more. As part of the tour, the band held a launch party for the new single last April 11 at Unknown 13 Pub in Quezon City. They were joined by ASTRA, Theo JP, Badwave, Calix, and Chicosci.

Fragments was formed in 2017 and is composed of Cezar, bassist Felix Manzanas, drummer Matthew De Mesa, and guitarists Carl Gonzales and Ryan Mitchell. They are known their modern take on the metalcore genre, incorporating electronic and synth elements in their overall aggressive sound coupled with unapologetic and subversive lyricism tackling themes of inner struggles, politics, and religion. Their debut album Transcending Duality was released last January 2021.
