Victimas Del Doctor Cerebro, masters of the punk-horror performances, launch new album and announce U.S. tour

Victimas Del Doctor Cerebro, masters of the punk-horror performances, launch new album and announce U.S. tour

Las Víctimas del Doctor Cerebro, one of the most distinctive bands since the 90 s in Mexico and pioneers of a unique sound that mixes ska, punk rock and heavy metal as well as experimental electro-pop, released their ninth album titled El Rey De Los Monstruos (Cerebro Records/Dragora), and shortly after announced their tour in Mexico, Argentina and the USA.


With more than 25 years of career and 10 productions that have left their mark, the group originally from the State of Mexico, emphasizes with this new album their hard rock roots with songs like "Godzilla" and "Frankenstein", while the lyrics and rhythms in their first single "Diablo Adentro" are more playful, dipping into electronic. The origins of the group in ska are highlighted and renewed in their second single titled "Love". 


The popularity of Víctimas del Dr. Cerebro has remained constant throughout the years and hits like "El Esqueleto" are already part of the classic Mexican rock song playlist of the 90 s. Other memorable hits such as "Ya Tus Amigos" "Ella Se Muere" "Cadáver Del Amor" y "Humanos", among others, are a must in their concert set lists.


Also known for their spontaneity, energy and their scenic shock-rock, Víctimas del Dr. Cerebro was founded by father and son, Jesus Flores "El Chipotle" (keyboards, voice and saxophone) and Ricardo Flores "El Abulón" (voice and keyboards), after being part of the group Tecnopal. Later, the band united with two more brothers, Arturo Flores "El Tuco" (bass) and Daniel Flores "El Ranas" (guitars), known as the youngest of the Flores Clan. After a few updates in the bands lineup with other participating musicians, the current group is now also formed by Adrián Toussaint (guitar) who is currently the musical director of La Barranca, and Julián André (drums), who has also participated as a drummer with Cecilia TouissantAlfonso Andre, and in La Barranca.


The USA tour kicks off in July with performances in Ruido Fest on July 9 in Chicago and Wuateke Rock Fest in Atlanta and Houston in September, among other performances throughout the country. To see the tour dates

First major latin Music & Arts Festival in the midwest, LOS DELLS FESTIVAL, announced

First major latin Music & Arts Festival in the midwest, LOS DELLS FESTIVAL, announced

 

La zona central de EE.UU. le da la bienvenida al primer Festival multi-género de Música & Arte Latino - Los Dells Festival- en Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin el 2 & 3 de septiembre de 2017. El festival incluirá algunos de los nombres más importantes del rock latinoamericano, reggaetón, pop y norteño/regional. A principios de junio se anunciará la lista de artistas estelares que participarán en el festival, en el cual habrá exhibiciones de arte, juegos de carnaval y un programa culinario amplio. Todo ello contribuye a que sea un festival cultural imperdible en este verano y uno de los festivales de música latina más grandes que se vislumbran en el país.

 

Al frente del festival se encuentra Damon Zumwalt, fundador y director general de Contemporary Services Corporation, los que este año celebran su 50° aniversario. Zumwalt cuenta con el respaldo de un grupo de productores y promotores de eventos locales y nacionales con amplia experiencia, incluyendo algunos de los organizadores del exitoso Festival Life is Beautiful en Las Vegas.  Los Dells Festival tendrá lugar en Woodside Ranch, un lugar de 1500 acres de tierra privada, arbolada y prístina. El público que acuda al festival tendrá la opción de acampar y hospedarse en el lugar mismo o cerca del evento o quedarse en uno de los numerosos hoteles o complejos turísticos. Wisconsin Dells, reconocido como uno de los lugares de atracción familiar más grandes en la zona central del país y como la "capital de los parques acuáticos del mundo" lleva su nombre por la quebrada de 5 millas, de origen glaciar, que presenta unas formaciones increíbles de piedra arenisca a lo largo de las orillas del Rio Wisconsin. Esta región, reconocida por sus paisajes emblemáticos y su belleza inspiradora, cuenta con más habitaciones de hotel y opciones de alojamiento que cualquier otra área en el estado (más de 10.000).

 

Además se encuentra en un lugar central entre todas las zonas urbanas más importantes del centro del país, lo que convierte a esta región en un lugar ideal para un festival de música multicultural a gran escala. Cuando alguien le mostró este terreno de 1500 acres en Wisconsin por primera

   
  Damon Zumwalt

vez a Zumwalt hace más de quince años y él vio los campos exuberantes rodeados por bosques, inmediatamente visualizó llevar a cabo un festival de música.  Con el nombre de Contemporary Services Corporation la empresa de Zumwalt [servicios de seguridad y control de multitudes durante eventos] trabaja en más de dos docenas de festivales anuales importantes en todo el país y para él la belleza natural de Wisconsin Dells es un buen rival para los mejores festivales.  "Fui muy afortunado de poder adquirir esta propiedad increíble que se presta para deportes y entretenimiento. Es uno de los mejores sitios que jamás he visto para un posible festival de música. Y sentimos que muchos de los latinos que viven en esta región no han tenido la oportunidad de ver muchos grupos excelentes de música en un mismo festival y en el ambiente indicado; queremos acercarles excelente música combinándola con un recuerdo y experiencia de un festival inolvidable". Cuando se le preguntó por qué decidió lanzar un festival de música latina, Zumwalt dijo: "Me crié en San Diego, una ciudad fronteriza. Asistí a la escuela en una zona latina y muchos de mis amigos más cercanos eran latinoamericanos o mexicanos.

 

Como vivíamos a tan solo 10 millas de México, mis amigos y yo solíamos cruzar la frontera para disfrutar de la comida, el entretenimiento y la cultura de nuestros vecinos del sur. Desde ese momento siempre tuve una gran afinidad con el idioma y la música y mantengo una relación estrecha con la comunidad latina. En la universidad mi énfasis académico fue el idioma español y más tarde me casé con una mexicana, con quien formé una familia. El entretenimiento latino me pareció ser una progresión natural".

Germany is a country that excels in the international scene due to its cultural and technological development. Today it s one of the most important figures of national and progression stability, and one of the members of the European Union with a foreign policy of greater openness to the international market. In this context, the German music industry develops as one of the most diverse and dynamic in the world. It is currently ranked as the largest music market in Europe - even above the UK - and the third worldwide.


This year, Germany will be FIMPRO s guest of honor and its participation includes the presence of a delegation led by the Reeperbahn Festival, one of the most important meetings of the music industry in the world.

The German delegation at FIMPRO will be formed by a wide range of music agents such as managers, promoters, musicians, producers and record labels, who will bring to life a program of activities including conferences, workshops, book presentations and networking sessions.


The conference entitled "Expanding borders, Germany: a strategic market for music", will offer a recount on the German market: their agents, their consumption practices and the opportunities it offers to the Latin American market; while the Reeperbahn Festival will offer a talk entitled "Music and City", which will discuss the impact of music events in cities and how they can be beneficial.
