The band is composed of singer Sompol Rungpanit, Pratheep Siriissaranan and Piyawat Meekrua on guitars, Eksiri Kambangphai on bass, and Kritpong Sakulnamanek on drums.  Their self-titled first album also included a track used in the major movie soundtrack to “Kuan Mun Ho.”

Band members said the name of the group came from the idea that if a day had 25 hours, the final 60 minutes would be when people do what they really want to do.  They said 25 Hours music was dedicated to describing key moments occurring at different times of life; both happy and sad, lonely or fun, all of which are a start of something important.
