After teasing fans with a cryptic video last week, SB19 finally announced their new single, “WYAT” [Where You At] and an upcoming world tour. The much-anticipated comeback single is a disco-pop track that highlights these times of disconnection to create a reconnection. Call it a comeback if you like, but the group took a short break to maximize their potential. “WYAT” releases on September 2nd and marks the group’s release of new music since the launch of their 2021 EP, Pagisibol.
The award-winning and Billboard nominee Philippine Pop phenom is also set to stage their biggest local and international tour to date. WYAT [Where You At] Tour kicks off on September 17, 2022 at Araneta Coliseum, to be followed by a series of shows in Clark, Cebu, Davao and more. The tour will then go international as SB19 heads to multiple countries like US, UAE, and Singapore to name a few. SB19 Ken mentions, “We are thrilled to be releasing a new song for our fans. Bigger, better. I hope that A’TIN will appreciate at best the work we’ve done for our upcoming tour.” International A’TIN can expect SB19 to drop by their city starting October 2022.
Besides being a talented group, SB19 will be involved in the creative process behind the upcoming tour from conceptualization to choreography, from promotion strategy to visual ideation. SB19 Josh says, “This will be the first time for us to be going out of the country for our own concert. We’re excited to meet our international fans. If I may put it: we were caterpillars inside cocoons when we were just starting and now, we’ve turned into butterflies ready to spread our wings!”
SB19 Justin adds, “Josh tweaks a bit of everything, from choreography to the direction of our shoots. He and Pablo has a big role in decision-making. Ken helps with the creative process, from how the dances should look to the set design. Aside from being the main choreographer, Stell also shares ideas on how to promote our comeback. He’s been mentioning if we could play the videos after our recent performances before the tour starts, So we did. It really takes a village and is a healthy collaboration.”
More details about the local and international tour will be announced soon. For more information about SB19’s series of shows, check out the updates on their social media accounts.
