Ill Niño Announce “Confession” 20th Anniversary Tour With Through Fire, Dropout Kings, Etc.


Latin metallers Ill Niño will embark on a 20th anniversary tour celebrating their 2003 sophomore album “Confession” later this year. Of course, much has changed in the years since that album’s release, with vocalist Marcos Leal now fronting the outfit.

Speaking of the opportunity to celebrate an album that was instrumental to him in his youth, Leal commented:

“20 years ago I stood in line after school at our local record store ,On Cue, to purchase a record that would inevitably change my life, Ill Niño‘s Confession! I learned all the songs back to back to sing with my first band ever. Fast forward 20 years later, I’m singing for the band I grew up idolizing, and relearning the songs that were the soundtrack of so many of our teenage years! I look forward to celebrating 20 years of Confession with all the fans, and ready to bring you the best Niño show you have ever seen. See you guys in the pit!”

The band’s drummer and founder Dave Chavarri added:

“I remember every detail while recording, and co producing this album Confession with my brother, iconic producer Bob Marlette (Rob Zombie, Black Sabbath). While recording Confession, I never realized it would become Ill Niño‘s biggest, and most successful release to date. Confession is angry, dark, and beautiful. I am proud to bring everyone the 20 Year Anniversary of Confession!! Come celebrate with us.”
