Being Mexican is hot right now. Goalkeeper Memo Ochoa saves Mexico in the World Cup against Brazil and becomes an overnight sensation. The Mexican rock band, Seis Pistos, is riding on that wave of Mexican popularity to announce their upcoming tour, album, video, and new sound. They have already recorded five albums. But its the fifth, Rocktrospectiva, will be here in the U.S. in late July. But that’s not all. The band will also make its first appearance in the United States as well. The group, whose music is labeled as Latin Punk, was listed as the best band in the 2004 NXNE Festival in Toronto, Canada. Their tour will begin on July 16 in Los Angeles and run down the west coast and finish in Las Vegas, NV. on July 25th.
Seis Pistos is influenced by several legendary bands in the U.S. and Mexico, which accounts for their varied mix of classic Mexican songs. The Sonic Ranch Studio was where the album was recorded under producer and engineer, Neil Citron (Steve Vai, The Yardbirds, and Quiet Riot, among others.) The Chihuahua based band is excited to create this tribute, paying homage to the true tradition of Mexican Rock. “The Rolling Stones” was launched as an advance single to give listeners a taste of what is to come in this tribute album. They have already sold Kim Fowley(Kiss, The Runaways, Alice Cooper) on this project. “I have to point out that Seis Pistos are the Latino Ramones in the rock market of the 21st century.” She added.
