Magnus Haven is a 5-piece Filipino alternative rock band.
The band members envision their music to be the great sanctuary (as what Magnus Haven literally translates to) of those who love and long for the original alternative rock songs.
They compose and arrange their own songs - like any bonafidemusicians, in which the theme range from the happy and deeper shade of Blue. The band recorded the songs ‘Imahe’, ‘Kapalmuks’ and ‘Panalangin’ which has beendigitally distributed by Warner Music Philippines and available now on Spotify, iTunes and Apple Music. They are now in the thick preparation of recording their new songs.
Although typically millennials – as their ages range from 18 to 23 years – their music is so “rich and transcendental” giving them the capacity to appeal also to older generations. To test the water and to find out if they could hold their own against the “older band”, the band members (as Third of December then, the band’s former name) competed and won the top prize in their first and only band competition, the Robinson Supermarket’s Deli Music Festival Unplugged in 2017.
Since then, the band appeared and performed live on several TV and radio programs as well as campus tours and other gigs, e.g. Unang Hirit, Wowowin, iWantASAP, MyxPhilippines, Tee Radio, MOR 101.9, Radyo Agila, Coke Studios, Jamie Rivera’s All About Love Valentine Concert, GMA Playlist, Wish 107.5, Play FM, Home Radio, ASAP Natin ‘To, iWant ASAP, Umagang Kay Ganda, etc.
The band also performed with top local artists and bands at 19 East, Chef & Brewer, HistoriaBoutique Bar and Restaurant, 70’s Bistro, Route 196, Conspiracy Garden Café and was invited to perform at Dulux Paint Convention 2018 at The New World Hotel, Makati City and other provincial shows.
