Sonora Remixes, due for release XXX, also features The Holydrug Couple, The Men, The KVB, Al Lover and more

With their first European tour since 2015 now announced, including a show at Fuzz Club Eindhoven as well as the London warm-up show at The Shacklewell Arms, Chilean psych-rockers Vuelveteloca have announced Sonora Remixes: a forthcoming album that sees the likes of A Place To Bury Strangers, The Holydrug Couple The KVB, The Men, Al Lover and more remix the band’s fifth full-length Sonora, released back in 2017 on Fuzz Club.

To announce the album, due for release July 26th, Vuelveteloca are sharing the A Place To Bury Strangers remix of ‘Chepical’ alongside a video, available to stream below. Where Sonora originally dealt in a warped motorik assault that pooled together Sabbathian stoner-rock grooves with full-throttle psych wig outs a la King Gizzard and Oh Sees, the remixes on display here trade their careening guitar noise for mechanical, pulsing electronics. Courtesy of the infamous Brooklyn noise-rock trio ‘Chepical’ is transformed into a dark and
industrial sonic assault: the guitars are still there but twisted and angular, piercing through a throbbing wall-of- noise bassline and twitchy drum-machine.

Alongside A Place To Bury Strangers, the Sonora Remix LP will also feature remixes by fellow Chileans The Holydrug Couple and IIOII, synth-pop/post-punk duo The KVB, Brooklyn’s genre-shifting noise-rockers The Men, LA-based producer Al Lover, as well as Pedro Pestana of Fuzz Club label-mates 10 000 Russos and Tren Go! Sound System and Tierra Del Fuego, a, NYC-based duo comprised of members of Psychic Ills and Argentinian dub band Nairobi. Talking about the album, the band explain: “We’ve wanted remixes of our songs for a long time but because it’s stoner-rock we just thought it’d be impossible. We really wanted to listen to how some other musicians could rebuild our songs though so we got some friends to just do 2 or 3 remixes from Sonora. When we got them back they were so good that we knew we had to do the full album! We asked some friends first, like The Holydrug Couple and IIOII, then some great musicians we’ve met on the road like The Men or Tierra del Fuego. Then we just started emailing some musicians we really like and they all accepted!”

In August, Vuelveteloca will be back in Europe for a short run of dates that will include a stop at Fuzz Club Eindhoven 2019 (Aug 23-24th) and the London warm-up show at The Shacklewell Arms with The Oscillation (Aug 19th) as well as shows in Brighton, Manchester and Berlin. Sadly, Vuelveteloca have also revealed that, due to members of the band moving to different countries, these will be their last shows for the foreseeable future, so they’re certainly not to be missed!
