“Visualize The Ramones getting wasted on a sunny day in Puerto Rico. You’re now a step closer to knowing what Davila 666 sounds like.” – NPR
“Like its Nuggets-crushing forebears, this Puerto Rican six-piece earns a place on your next house-party playlist with sheer anarchic energy, not to mention a formidable gift for language-transcending hooks.” – Pitchfork
Davila 666, the barrier-breaking garage rock animal from Puerto Rico, suprised us all this morning with their first new single in 5 years. Huesos Viejos is a fierce, intense, and catchy as all hell anthem for those Summer nights that go on just a little longer than you expected them to.
Self-described as “Menudo on drugs,” Davila 666 set the world on fire with their self-titled debut in 2008, which took jangly psych-inspired garage en-español to new heights, transforming them into instant legends on the island and beyond. Their 2011 release, ‘Tan Bajo,’ was released to much acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, NPR, Spin, and beyond. They toured the world, many reporting on their infectious live presence (more often than not their shows would turn into unforgettable sweat-soaked nights of debauchery that few would forget). They recorded a live EP at Jack White’s Third Man Records. They won over audiences all over the world. And then they stopped. In 2011, Davila 666 disbanded indefinitely.
Since then, members of the band have gone on to pursue other projects. Bassist AJ Davila has released three critically acclaimed solo records, frontman Carlitos Dávila has been working away with latin trap torch holders Füete Billete, Johnny Otis Davila has been touring with AJ and working on his own music.
The break, however, is over. Davila 666 will hit the road this July and grace stages across the U.S. (+Tijuana) with the same infectious energy that got them there in the first place. The band will also be releasing their long lost full length, ‘Que Viva El Veneno’, later this year. It’s been a while, they have a lot of pent up energy they’re saving for the stage. VAMOS PUÑETA
