[WATCH] Cuéntame Exclusive! 'The Beginning is Here' Video From #futurerock-and-roll band Outernational
We have a Cuéntame exclusive this morning from the radical global band Outernational! WATCH the video for ther single 'The Beginning is Here!"
The release kicks off the band's unapologetically titled 'Todos Somos Ilegales: We are All Illegal' tour. Tonight they play on the border in Brownsville Texas!
We're excited to be the tour's official documentarians and follow the sounds that open minds AND make you dance porque una revolución sin baile no es una revolución. A revolution without dance, isn't revolution!
Radical global #futurerock-and-roll band OUTERNATIONAL has just released the path-paving new album 'TODOS SOMOS ILEGALES: WE ARE ALL ILLEGALS' - a bi-lingual cinema-in-sound concept album about the border, the USA and the system which criminalizes those who create the wealth it rests upon.
With tightly-woven soundscapes referencing hard rock, hip hop, cumbia, corridos, gypsy punk, spaghetti westerns, chicha, vintage soul and even bachata, Outernational's 'TODOS SOMOS ILEGALES: WE ARE ALL ILLEGALS' is a singular album for 2012.
Released as a name-your-price download, the record features collaborations with Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Calle 13 (9-Time Latin Grammy Winner in 2011), Ceci Bastida (Tijuana No!) and Uproot Andy (Que Bajo?!)
