ZOÉ, the most important band in the Latin rock scene, start off their U.S. tour is about to wrap up its successful U.S. tour making their last stops in California.
Along with the tour, the ®Grammy winning band celebrate their 20th anniversary with the release of their sixth studio album titled “Aztlán” inspired by the mystical birth place of the Aztec people.
“This is undoubtedly the record on which that conscience or social criticism is most appreciated: we talk about immigration, about the situation in the country … ZOÉ have never been known for protest songs. However, in our music, in our energy, in our metaphors, the problems of the country and of Latin America in general creep in,” said León Larregui, leader of ZOÉ.

ZOË’s music evokes praise from both fans and music critics.
NPR Music (April 26, 2018)
“The band’s lead singer, Leon Larregui, is one of Mexico’s best contemporary songwriters in any genre. His literate, insightful lyrics have propelled the band’s impressive album sales…”
KCRW Pan Caliente Track Premiere “Clarividad” (April 2018)
“Clarividad” is a brooding track that keeps in line with Zoë’s now classic sound. León Larregui’s proprietary delivery of lyrics, coupled with finely tuned synths and accented guitar riffs, hint that this may be yet another platinum-bound album for the Mexican quintet.

KPFK 90.7 FM ‘Travel Tips For Aztlan” – Mark Torres ( April 2018)
“Clarividad, Zoe has managed to blend equal parts Gustavo Cerati, The Beatles, Roxy Music and the Cars to create a love soundscape for the world in desperate need of it.”
ZOË’s musical influences are eclectic and classic.
“I think we all started with The Beatles, Donovan, Bob Dylan, classical music. And then in the ’80s and ’90s we heard a lot of English music like The Cure and Pink Floyd and Talking Heads.” L.A. Times (2012)
