ILL NIÑO: New EP Title, Track Listing Revealed

On October 24, ILL NIÑO, the world re-known bi-lingual Latino metal sextet, will release a new five-song EP, "The Undercover Sessions", comprised of three of their favorite cover songs from bands they loved growing up as fans, and two brand new songs — all overseen by legendary producer Andy Johns (LED ZEPPELIN, VAN HALEN, OZZY OSBOURNE), Dave Chavarri and Eddie Wohl (ANTHRAX, 36 CRAZYFISTS, MACHINE HEAD). The EP — the band's first release through Cement Shoes Records — is just a taste of what's to come from ILL NIÑO, as their highly anticipated fourth full-length studio album, due for a spring 2007 delivery, is destined to be the band's strongest effort to date.

Commented the band: "We're currently in our rehearsal studio busting our asses writing the follow-up to 'One Nation Underground'. The new shit is coming out hot!"

"The Undercover Sessions" track listing:

01. Zombie Eaters (FAITH NO MORE cover)
02. Territorial Pissings (NIRVANA cover)
03. Red Rain (PETER GABRIEL cover)
04. Arrastra
05. Reservation for Two

Sep. 21 - Recher Theatre - Baltimore, MD

Sep. 23 - Webster Theater - Hartford, CT

Cement Shoes Records, formed in 2006 by industry veterans Daniel E. Catullo III (president/founder of music DVD company Coming Home Studios), Peter Koepke (former president/partner of legendary London Records), and Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins, seeks to re-establish true artist relationships and development neglected in recent years by major labels. An independent label distributed by Fontana/Universal, Cement Shoes Records believes the artist comes first and needs to be properly developed through relentless touring and focused marketing efforts to "the street," where the true music fans are.
