I hope winter is treating you well. For years now (literally), we’ve been waiting for Rio de la Muerte’s full length CD. Sorry, the wait continues. However, here’s some news from Rio’s blog from last month.
PS – you should have been at the fest. I fell in love (literally). She is the girl of my dreams.
Hello all. Rio here, just chillin’ with the sun in beautiful Miami Beach. Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about you, I’ve just been busy doing my thing.
Yeah I know, it’s been a while and you may be wondering when the new album’s coming out and when I’ll be playing more shows. In case you didn’t know, I’ve been going to school. Can you guess my major? Anyway, I’m currently writing my graduation thesis with a working title of “Castanedian Themes of Power and the Future of Toltec Magic Work.” It’s been taking up a lot of time. My part of the recording process is over, I’m just waiting for the extremely busy and talented Chad Matheny (of Emperor X fame) to finish mastering it. It’s been a while (the damn thing took me two years to record) and it might be another while as Chad doesn’t rush shit, and niether would I want him to. I assure you, the product will be quality.

Well, I’ll be graduating in a couple months and then I assure you, it’s on! Look forward to a large summer tour and multiple releases in quick succesion! Until then:
“May All Great Things Be Everywhere!”
