Celebrating two decades as a band plus a sold out U.S. tour which concluded last month 

The superstar band is scheduled to perform three ‘Sold Out’ nights (June 8, 9, 10) at ‘Auditorio Nacional’ in Mexico City 

Vesper Public Relations. Los Angeles, CA. June 2018. In celebration of their twentieth anniversary, Latin Grammy-winning Mexican rock quintet Zoé released their sixth studio album Aztlán.

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.

From the seductive opening track “Venus” to its plaintive, yet hopeful closing track “Clarividad”, Aztlán evokes a wide spectrum of emotions with its carefully constructed lyrics and intricate musical interplay. Its twelve songs were written by front man Leon Larregui and recorded between January and September 2017 at Panoram studios in Mexico City.

The album was produced by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, Kasabian, Stereophonics, Noel Gallagher and Florence and The Machine), Phill Vinall (Placebo, Pulp, Mark Knopfler, Elastic) and Zoé, and it was mixed by Craig Silvey at Toast Studios in London and mastered by Greg Calbi (Blondie, Deep Purple, Arcade Fire, Foster The People, Fleet Foxes) at Sterling Sound in New York. The new album follows Prográmaton, Zoé’s 2013 release.

“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.”

The album’s first single, “Azul” (blue), talks about the fleeting nature of love and personal relationships in modern society, which is accentuated when Larregui sings, “ya me olvidaste” (you have forgotten me).

Its music video received more than two million YouTube views the day of its release and currently has more than fifteen million views. “Temor y Temblor” (fear and tremble), another single off the album, expresses the hope that humanity can be more free of prejudice — if we engage more in self exploration and truly be ourselves, “se evapora el pensamiento enemigo” (enemy thought evaporates). The song immediately reached first place in Mexico and the U.S. on Spotify and iTunes’ Latin alternative charts.

In the album’s title track “Aztlán”, Larregui showcases his trademark meditative vocal delivery and describes a person seeking refuge from a land without peace. The hope of reclaiming the sacred home of their ancestors is their only recourse.

This weekend the superstar band is scheduled to perform three ‘Sold Out’ nights at ‘Auditorio Nacional, ‘Mexico City’s premiere concert venue. Prior to these performances the band will be meeting their fans at an autograph signing at record store MixUp in Centro Las Americas, in Ecatepec in the state of Mexico.  After their successful U.S., Mexico , & Latin American tour, the band will perform at ‘Personal Fest 2018’ in Argentina  on November 10 & 11, sharing the stage with artists such as Robbie Williams, Lorde and MGMT to name only a few of the international artists performing.
