Is this the Eraserheads reunion we've all been waiting for?

Former Eraserheads frontman Ely Buendia, bassist Buddy Zabala, lead guitarist Marcus Adoro, and drummer Raimund Marasigan simultaneously shared on their respective social media accounts a photo of an inverted letter E that resembles the band's logo, stirring reunion speculation among fans.

Buendia and Marasigan didn't include a caption in their post. Meanwhile, Zabala quoted a line from their song "With A Smile" in his caption, saying, "Let me hear you sing it," while Adoro captioned his post with the line, "Et me er u eng et," the gibberish word for the song lyrics.

Fans express their enthusiasm at the possibility of a new project from each member in the comments section of every post.

The mystery posts also piqued the interest of TV host Bianca Gonzalez, band Moonstar88, filmmaker Antoinette Jadaone, and Parokya ni Edgar's frontman Chito Miranda. 

"[Ano to?] (What is this?)" Jadaone asked Buendia.

"Bandmate, ano to?" Moonstar88 said, addressing Zabala. Meanwhile, Gonzalez wrote, "Omg (Oh my God)."

"Uy...ano kaya 'to?!?" Miranda said in a Facebook post accompanied by a screenshot of Buendia and Marasigan's tweets.

Eraserheads have yet to announce an upcoming reunion, concert, or song officially. 

Buendia stated late last year that the Eraserheads might reunite if former Vice President Leni Robredo ran for president. However, when Robredo announced her presidential bid, Buendia retracted his statement, claiming it was a "half-serious joke."

The band, formed in 1989 in the hallways of the University of the Philippines Diliman, is considered one of the Philippines' most legendary bands and paved the way for rock bands.

After more than a decade of playing together, they disbanded in 2002 and reunited for a concert in 2009 at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds.

Eraserheads were the artists behind the 1995 OPM hit song, "Ang Huling El Bimbo," which won MTV's Asian Viewer's Choice Award in 1997, making them the first Filipino act to win the award.
