Hale were a highly acclaimed Filipino pop/alt rock band that formed in 2004. Shortly after their formation, Hale were signed to
EMI, who released their self titled debut a year later. The album was a tremendous success, going triple platinum as of May
2006. They also won various awards for their music, including a MYX award and three MTV Philippines awards, with one
nomination at the MTV Asia Awards for "Favorite Artist". However, the success was relatively short lived, as Hale announced
their split in 2010. Even though they were only active for six years, Hale are easily among one of the most popular Filipino rock
groups of the 2000's.
