Morrissey cancels gigs, so why not check out Mexrrissey instead?
Never heard of Mexrrissey? Well, today you will. This Mexican band brings Spanish-language re-workings of Morrissey songs and they have now announced a new single, “Entre Más Me Ignoras, Más Cerca Estaré” (“The More You Ignore Me,
The Closer I Get”) and UK tour for 2017.
To be released 27th January, “Entre Más Me Ignoras, Más Cerca Estaré” is taken from the band’s debut album “No Manchester”. “No Manches” is a Mexican slang phrase meaning “No Way” or “Are you kidding me?”, for the album title it has received a British touch by adding the ‘er’.
To coincide with the release of the single, Mexrrissey will embark on a five-date ‘Don’t Mention the Wall’ UK tour in January 2017, you can check the dates right here (and also order your tickets).
The live line-up of Mexrrissey for their UK tour will consists of DJ and producer Camilo Lara, founder of the electronic music project Mexican Institute of Sound (M.I.S.), Chetes (Zurdok) on guitar, Jay De La Cueva (Moderatto /Titán) on bass, Ceci Bastida (Tijuana No) on keyboards, Alex Gonzales on trumpet (Twin Tones) and Ricardo Najera on drums (Furland).
Here’s a live version of the upcoming single.
