Ben&Ben launches own weekly video show 'BBTV'

08/04/2020 12:55:13 AM

After a massive clamor from fans, Ben&Ben has launched their weekly show this August.

The multi-awarded nine-person band has recently introduced its own original program called BBTV this past 31 July 2020 as part of celebrating the important milestone in their career – accumulating more than 1 million subscribers in their YouTube channel. The first episode drops on 5 August 2020, and will continue to do so every Wednesday.

“We've been making vlogs that showed our life behind the scenes, but eventually the band and its team came up with the idea,” said vocalist and guitarist Miguel Benjamin. “Its primary goal is to simply find more ways to connect to people through more varied content.”

BBTV lets the audience take an intimate look at the band’s more personal and entertaining side as they share their journey of living together under one roof. That's, of course, aside from the usual music offerings of performance and collaborations.

“We decided to live together to eliminate or at least greatly lessen the risks involved with working outside,” added  Miguel. “We always had the idea of living together in the future to create content and write music, but with the situation now we realized that now was the best time to actually give it a shot.”

The critically-acclaimed folk-pop band from the Philippines also revealed their plans to drop a “headbang” version of their smash single “Pagtingin,” as well as cover select K-Pop songs in the future.

Adding in the series is the featuring of a more extensive range of content for people to connect to, including but not limited to games, competitions, challenges, and other forms of entertainment.

At present, Ben&Ben is working on the follow-up to their platinum-selling debut album, Limasawa Street, a record that includes generation-defining songs such as “Pagtingin,” “Fall,” “Araw-Araw,” “War,” and more. Paolo Benjamin confirms in a statement that one of the reasons for moving in was to start writing for their second album to be released under Sony Music.

“We wanted the process to be as organic and as involved as possible, and we're so excited to see what we can come up with where distance and time isn't a hindrance,” shared Paolo.
