GRAMMY award winning Mexican band Zoé returned last year with their sixth studio album, Aztlán, and simultaneously celebrated their 20th Anniversary selling out shows. Achieving gold status with more than thirty thousand copies sold in Mexico, a Latin Grammy Nomination in 2018 for Best Rock Album, and gathering more than one hundred million streams, Zoé’s return was anticipated and glorified.
To continue the celebration, Zoé is set to kick off their 2019 U.S. Tour on February 13 in Boston, Massachusetts at the House of Blues. Bringing along Canadian bands Metric and July Talk for the majority of concerts, Zoé will spearhead this multicultural tour throughout the states.
More on the album and our review:
Zoé’s current sixth studio album titled Aztlán was inspired by the mythical birthplace of the Mexica people who would later come to rule the Aztec Empire, the album incorporates psychedelic rock, synth pop, indie rock, and classic rock en español influences and explores the universal themes of identity, technology, social-consciousness, and love in the modern world.
“The title of the album, Aztlán, is a reference to our people. It is an invitation to discover the beauty and richness of our culture, and look inward so we can recover that Mexican dignity and pride,” notes front man Larregui. “This reflection to the past is with the hopes that as we reinvent ourselves in the near future we continue to maintain our ‘Mexicanness’ in a globalized world. This concept did not necessarily have direct impact on the sounds of the songs, it was more conceptual.”
