Ill Niño Debut Music Video For New Track “All Or Nothing”, P.O.D.’s Sonny Sandoval Guests


Ill Niño have unveiled the Hunter Chapman directed music video for their new single “All Or Nothing“, which finds P.O.D. frontman Sonny Sandoval guesting. The song is taken from the group’s forthcoming new album “IllMortals“, due out this fall on Break Silence Music.

That outing will be the band’s first with their latest lineup, which finds drummer Dave Chavarri and bassist Laz Pina joined by vocalist Marcos Leal (Shattered Sun), guitarists Jes DeHoyos (Sons Of Texas) and Sal Dominguez (ex-Upon A Burning Body) and returning percussionist Daniel Couto.

Sanodval commented of his guest appearance:

“Like P.O.D., Ill Niño have always incorporated their culture, roots and heritage into their music and sound, which have set them apart in this metal scene for over two decades. It was my honor and privilege to have contributed to this record. After knowing them for 20 years now, I don’t know why we didn’t do this sooner.”

Ill Niño frontman Marcos Leal added:

“‘All Or Nothing‘ was written as a challenge to myself. I knew the moment I joined Ill Niño I would face negativity, scrutiny and possibly ridicule. It caused me to question myself, and even question if I was good enough to embrace this opportunity. I challenged myself as I’m challenging all of you, what would you do if the opportunity of a lifetime was within your grasp? I chose to go ‘All Or Nothing.’ I wanna thank one of my heroes, Sonny Sandoval of P.O.D. for lending his freshness to this track and being a constant inspiration.”

Speaking of the video itself, Leal offered:

“I am fortunate to come from a place where I’m so close to the border in South Texas, that I get to witness all the good and the bad that comes from the immigration issues. My father and my father-in-law both own companies that give immigrants coming into our country an opportunity to make an honest living, and provide for their families. Working with these families, I have seen first hand some of the things that have held them back such as the language barrier, the frail state of politics in our country at the moment and the negativity that comes with it all.

Thankfully I’ve also seen people come to the U.S. and conquer all of these obstacles, with many success stories, and experiences, which I’ve definitely learned from. I can assure you that there are many things we can learn from each other, if we could just all put our differences aside.”

Bassist Laz Pina added:

“I grew up in mixed neighborhoods predominantly blue collar minorities but nonetheless mixed. My childhood friends and school mates collectively were of different backgrounds and cultures. Aside of race we ultimately had too many other things in common. It wasn’t till I was much older that I began to realize certain things. Thankfully I am grateful how my country responded with our new administration and I believe we are now back to collectively moving forward again. I am hopeful of a global society living in peace, love and respect.”
