One of Laguna’s premier hardcore bands, PILEDRIVER hails from Sta Rosa City, Laguna. Doing and Playing their own brand of Hardcore since 1998 with roots tightly knit in

the ever flourishing Laguna underground scene. Straight up sensibilities veering towards a Moshpit inciting sing alongs tunes, with breakdowns laced by a NYHC flavor.

The roots are the band are rooted from an unforeseen turn of events, on November 28, 1999 a tragic incident took place in a skatepark at Biñan, Laguna. Then Pilediver

Guitarist GERRYMAR YAP was senselessly shot in a drive by, by gangsters. That event served a s a wake up call for the the whole Laguna Scene.

Though Yap passed away, he is in forever in our hearts and would be the icon, which would be representing the truest sense of Brotherhood. The short-lived Piledriver

lineup was no more .. A few months after, members of the crew thought of continuing the group left by their deceased brother. Feb. 9, 1999 a new line-up for Piledriver

surfaced. A demo was released mid ’99 having four songs of LAGUNA STREET-STYLE HARDCORE. The demo was entirely dedicated to GERRYMAR YAP, who died senselessly on that

ill-fated day. Piledriver stands for its unified belief in a dream of having a peaceful society through … RESPECT..UNITY and BROTHERHOOD.

On 2006, the band was able to finally release their highly anticipated debut full length titled Sta. Rosa City. A tribute to the City they grew up with through hard

times and good times. The band is ever relentless in touring and has made DIY tours spanning from Manila, Batangas, Baguio, Tarlac, Quezon, Laguna to as deep down the

south of Cebu! Continually strengthened collectively by a fostered brotherhood from the local scene and various local affiliations and cross collaborations with our

Asian neighbors of Singapore, Hong Kong and South East Asia.

Piledriver has persevered through and through despite an ever changing lineup, the crew keeps its thinking spirited, uplifted and carries on. Unrelentless and

unwavering to spread the positive message that Hardcore has conveyed and have given to their own lives. Truly said, they are a staying real, true, positive and forward

thinking unit that keeps the Hardcore Flames burning alive and well through the years. Released the 2nd full length “Southside Kings” CD on 2011 under Crank Music

Relief and Railroad Records, relentless touring followed after the release of the 2nd full length which covered new territories like Davao City, Gensan, CDO, Iligan

City, Bacolod City, Kabankalan City and some Asian countries like Hongkong, Malaysia and Singapore. 2014 DEFEND LAGUNA HARDCORE CDEP was released under the same labels

and non-stop shows followed in support of the new CDEP. The band is now in the process of making new materials and planning to release a new full length soon and planning to cover new places… “We will see you all, in a town near you”..
