6 months after the release of their stunning record ‘Population Control’, San Antonio ferocious hardcore band AMYGDALA returns with a new song. The track is called “Semillas” and was recorded on their very recent tour on October 15th, 2016 by Shawn Decker of Middle-Man Records. Listen and scroll down to see the details of their upcoming masssive tour.
In other news, the band has a new tape out! It’s called “Live in Germany” and it’s available on cassette with screen printed covers at this location. “Live in Bremen” can be grabbed from here.
The band has just returned from their October trek, which included an appearance at THE FEST15, which has been documented by these live videos.
Back to the new track, the band commented:
The sound clip at the end of the song is a live recording i took of a ceremony prayer at a Standing Rock benefit we played in Washington, DC. The prayer was done by the amazing indigenous folx of guatemala in solidarity with standing rock. Listen to the prayer, it could bring closure in dark, difficult times as these.

They tried to bury us, they didnt know we were seeds!
They tried to silence us
but you cant silence a mind that’s free!
appropriate to a system that
doesn’t work for the marginalized.
the working class families
the broken home
children that roam
the barrios that will keep them from growing
WE LEARN TO HATE OURSELVES, THIS KEEPS US FROM GROWING
one day they will grow and they will breathe in the stench that pollutes our air. Look around the gentrification that takes place and realize that this land, this plan wasn’t for our people. They tried to whitewash our identities.
