De La Tierra, whose stated mission is to “elevate the roots of the Latin American continent where they were born,” will release their second album, II, on November 18 through Sony Music Latin.

The all-star band made up of Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser, Andrés Giménez of Argentina’s A.N.I.M.A.L., Los Fabulosos Cadillacs bassist Sr. Flavio and drummer Alex Gonzalez of Maná released their debut in 2014 and followed up with a slate of touring that included opening for Metallica on South American dates and playing Rock in Rio and other major festivals.

“This song talks about how life can take us in different directions, good or bad,” says Giménez of the gristly track. “Our soul is unbreakable. It’s up to us to understand if it’s time to be born, to grow, or to die. The payoff is always there. Nothing is easy, but nothing is impossible as long as you keep the pure power inside your heart.”

De La Tierra to Launch First U.S. Tour

Alex González and his De La Tierra are preparing to dirty up their schedules with a U.S. tour.

De La Tierra, the heavy metal super group formed by members of Sepultura, Maná, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs and A.N.I.M.A.L., will start their first U.S. tour on August 31 in Los Angeles.


“We all come from very important bands who have made their mark in rock in Latin America,” says González, known throughout the Spanish-speaking world as a member of top-selling Latin rock band Maná. Just before the release of De La Tierra’s debut album in late 2013, he described the band as, “A very special union of four good friends.”

Andreas Kisser, whose Brazilian heavy metal band Sepultura has sold 2.2 million albums in the United States, brings heavy metal cred to the project. “The whole idea of doing a heavy band in Spanish alone was amazing for me,” Kisser said.

Kisser, González and collaborators Sr. Flavio from The Fabulosos Cadillacs and Andrés Giménez of A.N.I.M.A.L. will begin De La Tierra’s U.S. tour at the Fonda Theatre in L.A. They will also play Houston, New York, Miami, Chicago, Atlanta and San Francisco.

De La Tierra performed at Mexico City’s 2013 Vive Latino Festival, and toured throughout Latin America over the past year.
