Filipino indie band Bita and the Botflies tease new song with ghoulish single art
Filipino indie band Bita and the Botflies will soon release a new single.
On Monday (May 31), the quartet shared the art of a new single on their social media pages. Created by local artist Sean Dominguez, the artwork showed a sketch of four bodies in costume and a dress holding their severed heads, as if they were posing for a portrait. Bubbles float on each of their bloody necks.
The group has yet to reveal a title for the single, although they did mention the date of June 25 – which appears to be its release date. Check out the illustrations here:

This will be the first release of Bita and the Botflies since the launch of their first full album ‘Peklat Cream’ at the end of 2019. Besides the LP, they also released the single ‘Manghuhula’ the same year and the EP ‘Sisikat Ka Iha’. in 2018. The quartet is known for tackling serious topics such as the objectification of women and domestic violence in their music.
Bita and the Botflies was formed in 2016 with the original name Adobo Toothpaste. They are made up of members Sofy Aldeguer (vocals), Kevin Novenario-Navea (guitar) Cyron Rizon (bass) and Mark Lincallo (drums).
Last October they played a live benefit for Manila Mow’s Bar alongside Leanne & Naara, Oh, Flamingo! and more.
