With the release of the new single ‘Nada Te Pido’, TenTemPiés announces the arrival of their new EP: ‘A Casa Tierra’. This EP will be officially launched on April 18th with a live presentation at music venue Bitterzoet in Amsterdam, after returning from their tour in South-America.
Since the release of their well-received debut album ‘Canto Para Gritar’ two years ago, TenTemPiés has been on the road almost non-stop. 2012 was a successful year for the band with performances at large festivals like Dunya, Mundial and Oerol and tours through Germany, France and Spain.
In March TenTemPiés will cross the ocean for their third tour abroad, this time in Chili, back to their musical roots in the motherland of frontman Maurino Alarcón. This year it is also exactly 40 years since the coup against Salvador Allende, causing the parents of Maurino to flee the country and move to The Netherlands. For the band, known for their lyrics inspired by political issues and social injustice, this has been an important historical event for the shaping of their identity.
Upon return in Amsterdam, TenTemPiés will present their new EP ‘A Casa Tierra’ on April 18th in music venue Bitterzoet. The EP was recorded and mixed by Dougal Hallowes and Maurino Alarcón, for the mastering the band turned to Andrew Baldwin (The Who, The Orb, Hidden Orchestra) at the famous Metropolis Studios in London. With the 6-track EP, including a remix of the award-winning Dutch producer Perquisite, TenTemPiés is now fully geared up to spread their music and message even further, in The Netherlands, Europe and beyond.
