The new single follows their acclaimed 2009 self-titled debut, of which Vice says, “The record belongs in the long and storied lineage of Mexican garage bands, from the garden path acid rock of Los Ovnis to the Beatles-esque jams of Los Locos.”

Check out this video introducing the band, available below:

Rey Pila is Diego Solorzano, Rodrigo Blanco and Andres Velasco, though it was born in Mexico City as Solorzano’s solo project. The self-titled debut was recorded in 2009 and co-produced by Solorzano and Paul Majahan (TV on the Radio, Liars, Yeah Yeah Yeahs). That album led to success in Mexico and abroad, and live dates with the likes of Interpol, Muse, TV on the Radio and Ariel Pink, in addition to their own sold-out headlining concerts. Nylon calls Solorzano “an absolutely magnetic performer.” In 2012, Rey Pila’s current lineup moved to New York City and entered the studio to begin work on their second album.

Rey Pila will be unleashing a video for Alexander soon – stay tuned!
