Mexican indie rock band Chikita Violenta have signed to Canadian label Arts&Crafts for the release of their upcoming album TRE3S.
The album will be released in Mexico on August 17 this year and in 2011 for the rest of the world. It was recorded over the past two years with special guests Loel Campbell (Wintersleep), Lisa Lobsinger (Broken Social Scene) and Tony Nesbitt-Larking (The Most Serene Republic).
According to Arts&Crafts, "Chikita Violenta is a unique band with a unique sound, intensely crafted and expanded in the spirit of North American and British alt college lo-fi rock. Where once the band’s bold English-language approach was unheard of in Mexico, and even criticized, Chikita Violenta has become one of Mexico’s biggest indie acts, praised simultaneously for their compelling songwriting and all-consuming live performances."
