SONS OF TEXAS Announce UK Tour Dates In November 2016 European Support To Soil Debut Album: “Baptized In The Rio Grande” Out Now ‘(…)if you didn’t know, you’d surely believe that vocalist Mark Morales was actually Phil Anselmo circa 1994' – Metal Hammer A brilliant end to a brilliant album that bursting with Herculean muscle. The South has risen again.' – 9/10 My Global Mind
As far as debut albums go ‘Baptized In The Rio Grande is huge and perfectly puts Sons Of Texas on the rock n’ roll map and more importantly on the road to success and I personally can’t wait to see the band on the live circuit especially after hearing how loud, heavy, energetic and tight sounding they are on record.' – 5/5 Alternative Vision Following the critically acclaimed release of their debut album “Baptized In the Rio Grande” in late 2015, Sons Of Texas have been added to the UK and European Soil tour across November 2016. The European dates take in Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Austria, France before a full UK tour.
A stunning collection of hard rock songs with driving rhythms and the unique and powerful vocals of Mark Morales, the album was produced by Josh Wilbur (Lamb Of God, All That Remains, Gojira). The band are set to release a single from the album, “September”, around the tour.
Sons Of Texas was spawned in McAllen, Texas, a valley town without the music legacy of Austin or Arlington. The scene vibes “music for music’s sake” with metalcore bands, blues-rock bands, and straight up rock n’ roll bands swapping members and sharing bills. Sons Of Texas solidified in 2013 around a lineup of local all-stars. The group is Mark Morales, vocals, Mike Villarreal, drums, Nick Villarreal, bass, Jon Olivarez, rhythm guitar, and Jes De Hoyos, lead guitar.
