Ill Niño Announce The “15 Years of Revolution” Anniversary Tour

That’s right, Ninjas! Everyone’s favorite Latin Metal band is going on tour! Don’t know much about Ill Niño? Well let me tell you some things….


       Ill Niño formed their deeply rooted, Latin Metal band in 1999. When their album, Revolution, Revolución, debuted in 2001, it helped them become the epitome of Latin Metal. In 2002, the album sold nearly 430,000 units worldwide with the help of the Ozzfest and Jagermeister tours.. as well as strong airplay of their first single, “What Comes Around”. The second album, Confession, surpassed their debut album with 500,000 worldwide sales. With the success of Confession came the top 10 single, “How Can I Live”, which then became the featured single on the Freddy vs. Jason soundtrack and film.


They had the privilege of playing for thousands of metal fans across the U.S. with the prestigious Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival in 2014. The band’s relentless international touring in Europe, Australia, South America, Mexico, Russia, Philippines, China and Japan, plus sharing stages around the globe with some of the greats like Linkin Park, Disturbed, Guns & Roses, Avenged Sevenfold, Godsmack, Korn, and Sevendust, has established ILL NIÑO as one of the most lethal live bands of the decade.

From the words of Lead Vocalist, Cris Machado, “Nearly two decades later, onward we march to the sound of the war drums. It’s safe to say we owe it all to our fans. For our first 10 tours, Revolution, Revolución songs were all we played. Sadly a lot of our debut album went unperformed for many years thereafter, so now’s your chance to hear it again! Some may think it’s cliché, but the fact is 15 years later here we are and damn fucking right, we’re gonna celebrate! We live and die ILL NIÑO army, ILL NIÑO familia. Come celebrate 15 Years of Revolution and Latin Metal insanity with us!”
