Debut Album: “Baptized In The Rio Grande” Out Now

Sons Of Texas

‘(…)if you didn’t know, you’d surely believe that vocalist Mark Morales was actually Phil Anselmo circa 1994’ – Metal Hammer

A brilliant end to a brilliant album that bursting with Herculean muscle. The South has risen again.’ – 9/10 My Global Mind

As far as debut albums go ‘Baptized In The Rio Grande is huge and perfectly puts Sons Of Texas on the rock n’ roll map and more importantly on the road to success and I personally can’t wait to see the band on the live circuit especially after hearing how loud, heavy, energetic and tight sounding they are on record.’ – 5/5 Alternative Vision

Following the critically acclaimed release of their debut album “Baptized In the Rio Grande” in late 2015, Sons Of Texas have been added to the UK and European Soil tour across November 2016. The European dates take in Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Austria, France before a full UK tour.
A stunning collection of hard rock songs with driving rhythms and the unique and powerful vocals of Mark Morales, the album was produced by Josh Wilbur (Lamb Of God, All That Remains, Gojira). The band are set to release a single from the album, “September”, around the tour.
Sons Of Texas was spawned in McAllen, Texas, a valley town without the music legacy of Austin or Arlington. The scene vibes “music for music’s sake” with metalcore bands, blues-rock bands, and straight up rock n’ roll bands swapping members and sharing bills. Sons Of Texas solidified in 2013 around a lineup of local all-stars. The group is Mark Morales, vocals, Mike Villarreal, drums, Nick Villarreal, bass, Jon Olivarez, rhythm guitar, and Jes De Hoyos, lead guitar.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
