8 Kalacas state about the new song: “We sing about the literal borders that so many countries enforce, that keep humans separated and discriminated against. But we also sing about the borders in our head that keep us from being happy or that keep us from believing that we are worthy people capable of doing more than what society tells us we can do.” And this is why 8 KALACAS are taking up their instruments as their arms: to smash those borders and remind us that there is more uniting that separates us.
Influenced by the Mariachi and Cumbia traditions of Mexico while also being true children of a globalized world, 8 KALACAS stand for a new era in rock and metal music. It’s not just white music anymore. It’s music for anyone who feels at home in these intoxicating tunes. Hence their band name, with “calaca” meaning skull in Spanish. “No matter who you are, the colour of your skin, the type of people you love, what god you believe in, the poverty, or the wealth: when you die, the only thing left is the fucking KALACA.” Word, brother: in death, at least we are united. Or, if we don’t want to wait that long, in this fiery phenomenon called 8 KALACAS.
The new album “Fronteras” will be available as a CD incl. Bonus DVD (with video clips, documentary, and a live acoustic session), vinyl (black and orange/black colored), and digital. You can also pre-order a strictly limited (500 copies), colored 7inch vinyl of the album track “Mutante”, incl. the exclusive B-side “El Borrego”, a cover version of the CAFE TACVBA track incl. guest appearance of Alex Lopez of SUICIDE SILENCE.
