About

Kamikazee was a Filipino hard rock band formed in 2000. The band was composed of Jay Contreras on vocals, Jomal Linao and Led Tuyay on guitars, bassist Puto Astete and drummer Bords Burdeos.

Fans and critics have described the band's music as a mix of pop-punk and hard rock. In August 2015, the band had temporarily reunited after a brief hiatus announced earlier in January 2015 and in 2016, the band officially entered an indefinite hiatus. They played their farewell concert on December 10, 2015 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum

The band is composed of five members who met at the College of Fine Arts of the University of the Philippines, Diliman. Kamikazee's early gigs were mostly on-campus events in UP Diliman like the annual UP Fair. Before they were signed to a major label, they went by the name "Kamikazee Cornflakes", eventually shortening the name to "Kamikazee". Their early shows included performances of the songs "Mmm Sarap", "Tsinelas", a cover of singer Ariel Rivera's "Sana Kahit Minsan", and Britney Spears' Lucky.
