Los Fabulosos Cadillacs are back! The porteño ska rockers will make their long-awaited return with a new studio album entitled La Luz del Ritmo and set off to a city near you on their Satanico Pop Tour 2009!
The album contains new songs such as the upbeat tracks “La Luz del Ritmo” and “Flores” in addition to reinterpretations of classics like “Mal Bicho” and “Padre Nuestro.” They also feature a Latin ska cover of the Clash’s “Should I Stay or Should I Go.” La Luz del Ritmo has already reached Platinum in Mexico and Argentina, but will be released March 10th in the U.S.
Los Cadillacs will be hitting major cities in the their first leg of the tour in April, including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Miami. Check for dates after the jump. The old-school rockers just recently finished touring in Mexico City and Buenos Aires, where thousands of new and old fans filled stadiums to see them perform live again.
Los Fabulosos are Latin Rock icons. They formed in Buenos Aires during the 1980s, and took listeners by storm with their unique sound that fused together ska, reggae, rock, punk, tropical and Latin rhythms. Their hits “Matador” and “Mal Bicho” are still anthems for many today. After their breakup, lead-singer Vicentico embarked on a solo career with three albums. But, we can’t wait to hear their new work and see them live after nearly ten years of absence from the music scene.
Los Fabulosos Cadillacs promise to deliver a high-energy show filled with classics as well as new songs. So be sure to check them out this April!
