27 Mar GRAMMY-WINNING MEXICAN ROCK QUINTET ZOÉ CONCLUDES 2019 AZTLÁN NORTH AMERICA TOUR
A NAFTA-esque 25 date coast-to-coast co-headlining tour with multiple sold-out shows with Canadian bands Metric and July Talk
Vesper Public Relations. Los Angeles, CA. March 2019. Zoé, one of the most acclaimed Latin American rock bands of the past several decades that recently won a GRAMMY® for ‘Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album’, concludes their 2019 Aztlán North America Tour.
Featuring sold-out nights in Austin, Seattle, Atlanta, Anaheim, Sacramento and several other cities, this one of a kind, multicultural tour included Canadian bands Metric and July Talk for the majority of the dates, which kicked off on February 13 in Boston, Massachusetts at the House of Blues, ending March 22 at Aragon Ballroom, in Chicago, followed by a show at Queen Elizabeth Theater in Toronto, Canada. Their 2019 Aztlán tour will have a monumental closure at the Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City on June 28th and 29th. Metric will also perform during these dates.
Zoé recently topped the sales chart at #1 on Soundscan’s Latin Album & Latin Pop charts with album Aztlán. The two time Latin Grammy-winning band also earned a Grammy last month for “Best Latin Rock or Alternative Album” for Aztlán. Since its release, Aztlán has led Zoé to become the first Mexican bands to place 11 tracks, of the same production, in Spotify’s Top 200. The album earned a Gold record for the single “Azul” followed by Double Platinum record for the single “Hielo”. The songs on this album have exceeded 100 million streams in audio and video.
Aztlán was inspired by the mythical birthplace of the Mexica people who would later come to rule the Aztec Empire. The album incorporates psychedelic rock, synth pop, indie rock, and classic rock en español influences and explores the universal themes of identity, technology, social-consciousness, and love in the modern world.
“The title of the album, Aztlán, is a reference to our people. It is an invitation to discover the beauty and richness of our culture, and look inward so we can recover that Mexican dignity and pride,” notes front man Larregui. “This reflection to the past is with the hopes that as we reinvent ourselves in the near future we continue to maintain our ‘Mexicanness’ in a globalized world. This concept did not necessarily have direct impact on the sounds of the songs, it was more conceptual.”
ZOÉ’s music evokes praise from fans and music critics:
