Ill Niño Replace Vocalist And Guitarists, Debut New Track “Sangre”


Ill Niño have returned with new members and new music. The group have welcomed Shattered Sun vocalist Marcos Leal, ex-Upon A Burning Body guitarist Sal Dominguez on rhythm guitar and Jes Dehoyos of Sons Of Texas on lead guitar.

Their additions see the departures of frontman Cristian Machado, guitarist Ahrue Luster and guitarist Diego Verduzco. The band’s drummer Dave Chavarri commented of the substantial lineup shift:

“Sometimes being in a band is like being married – sometimes people grow apart and no longer see eye to eye, and a separation becomes inevitable. We wish our former members the best in their musical careers, and are pumped to move forward with our new band members. Not only have we toured with them, but they’re very respected, seasoned musicians, and dudes that have always been our ‘Familia’ since day one.”

Leal, who will also continue to perform in Shattered Sun, commented:

“Anyone who knows me knows the love I have for this band. I got my start singing Ill Niño covers in my younger years and this band has always held a special place in my heart. When the opportunity arose to front one of my favorite bands of all time, it was something I needed to consider.”

The band are currently lining up a new label and tours with more details to come. For now you can hear how their latest incarnation sounds on the new track “Sangre” below.
