Plainsunset is by far one of the most influential and inspiring bands in Singapore to date. Best known for their high-energy performances, irreverent stage banter and catchy tunes, Plainsunset are today’s shape of punk to come.

To label them as a pop-punk band is inadequate - yet at heart they still fiercely embody the punk-rock mentality that continually informs their music and ethics.

Plainsunset specialise in crafting some of the most memorable sing-along anthems this side of South East Asia, and it is a common sight to see and hear their audiences singing along to the point of overpowering the band!

Suffice it to say that they have a large and fiercely loyal international fan base, and consistently win new fans with every performance.

Formed in 1996, Plainsunset have 3 full-length albums under their belt, and songs on countless other compilations both local and international.

Whether playing to 30 people in a cramped club, or to 3000 screaming fans on a huge outdoor stage, Plainsunset have done it all, and then some.
They have performed internationally, taking their music to Malaysia, Hong
Kong, The Philippines, New Zealand and China in a series of successful tours.

With such a long history of playing out, it is no wonder every Plainsunset show is more than a performance - it is an unforgettable experience.

The band broke up in 2004, signifying the end of an era for them and for each individual member to focus on other musical activities. In 2006, they made their return at the Esplanade’s Baybeats 2006, Singapore’s Biggest Indie-Alternative Music Festival to set a Baybeats record of the highest ever turnout for a single set to 8,500 screaming fans.

Plainsunset have since released two albums since it’s return. The self titled “Plainsunset” in 2008 and the experimental EP “Collabor-8” in 2009.
