Indie band UDD (formerly known as Up Dharma Down) has announced that they will be releasing a new album — their first since lead singer and chief songwriter Armi Millare departed the band in 2021.

In a series of Facebook posts, the band wrote, “We haven’t said much lately, but we’ve been working hard on a new album. After taking a much-needed break, we spent the last two years recording in the studio…The three of us really enjoyed making this album. Aside from our own mothers, we’re probably each other’s biggest fans. So we gave ourselves the freedom to try new things, trusting that it would all sync up in the end.”

No release date or further details have been announced. Two teasers accompanied the aforementioned posts, which feature the phrases, “all I wanted was to give you love” and “all that I have” over background music.

The remaining members of UDD are Carlos Tañada, Ean Mayor, and Paul Yap. The band is best known for their hits “Tadhana” (Fate), “Indak” (Dance), “Oo” (Yes), and “Unti-unti” (Slowly But Surely).

They had intermittently posted videos and pictures in the years following Millare’s departure, such as a video of a rehearsal with the caption, “Here’s a little throwback when we were preparing for our first Japan show. Mga kabado (Scaredycats). We can’t wait to go back to the studio and just have fun with the music that brought us together from the very start.”

In April 2022, they posted a teaser, captioned, “Something old for something new.”
