Featured on IDIOTEQ in 2014, Serbian hardcore punk band MUERTO RICO, good friends of crusty screamo act EAGLEHASLANDED, has just unveiled 2 (!) impressive EPs and were so kind to sit down with IDIOTEQ and answer a few question about their work, their own reasons for running this band and local punk scene. Watch out, because this gang is lots of fun! Taste their newest tracks below and scroll down to play the full video interview. It is worth staying till the end as I am pretty sure it will make you laugh :) Cheers buddies and thanks again and congratulation on your new quality, sensitively arranged, dark and emotional pieces!
Catch the band live tonight with EAGLEHASLANDED and BIRDS IN ROW in Zemun, Serbia!
