ICYMI, the Thai rock band Tilly Birds recently flew to the Philippines for their first concert in the country with a few surprises for their fans.

Tilly Birds members Anuroth “Third” Ketlekha (vocalist), Nutdanai “Billy” Chuchat (guitarist), and Thuwanon “Milo” Tantiwattanaworakul (drummer) rocked out with their Filipino fans as they aced the stages of Skydome last Sept. 9.

The trio came to Manila as part of their Southeast Asia Tour and performed their hit songs Same Page, Just Being Friendly, and Until Then.

And just like other international artists coming to the Philippines, Tilly Birds was mesmerized they were of their Filipino fans, expressing their love and gratitude for everyone in the Tagalog language during the concert.

With more views from their growing global fandom, Third revealed how overwhelmed they were as a Thai band to reach international audiences with songs mostly written in their native language. 

“Every time we go out and play to non-Thai audience and they are screaming their hearts out in Thai, we [are] like ‘This is it, awesome crowd!’" he said in their press conference for the event.

Apart from the clamor, the trio would also be amazed at how their fans learned the Thai language well. "'Where did you learn Thai? You're Thai is so good!" Third said.

The hit-trio also recalled their favorite songs from their albums: Cut to the Chase, I’m Not Boring, You’re Just Bored, and Until Then, which they later performed in the show. 

“Right now, my current favorite song is unreleased yet,” Billy told PhilSTAR L!fe and other members of the press, noting that fans will be able to jam with it “sooner than they think.”

While the band proves that music knows no language, fans are up for some waiting as Third, Billy, and Milo teased they will release more songs written in English.

The band also concluded their Philippine concert promising fans that they will be back next year.

Tilly Birds began their journey as an indie band in 2010. It wasn't until nine years later, in 2019, that they debuted their first major-label album Poo Diew under Gene Lab record.

The trio were the finalists in the TV show Band Lab where they gained recognition from fans all over the world. The band currently has two albums: Poo Diew and It's Gonna Be OK. They are still flying from one city to another for their September tour, with Malaysia and Bangkok as their final stops.
