About VicenteGayo:

VicenteGayo is a band originating from Satelité, Estado de México, which was formed in mid 2007. VicenteGayo’s sound is defined by the basic elements of rock (lead guitar, bass, and percussion) in conjunction with “circuit bending” (electronic games and synths from the 80’s) created by themselves. This fusion of instruments creates an original sound that is very much their own.

Their first material was recorded in December of 2007 at Asrael Studios (also used by Austin TV), mixed and produced by Erick Espartacus, mastered by Harris Newman (Arcade Fire, Crystal Castles, etc) in Montreal Canada.

The first two singles, “Fin De Transmission” and “G-A-Y-O” have received airplay on major radio stations such as Reactor, EXA, Radio-Ibero, and Interferencia, among others. The video for “Fin De Transmission” has been on regular rotation on MTV Latinoamerica, Telehit, Efecto TV, and Canal Once.

In 2009, VicenteGayo has performed in Mexico’s major cities (Monterrey, Guadalajara, Cd. Juarez, etc) in addition to a Los Angeles performance. Now, in 2010, VicenteGayo has been invited to play at SXSW and more recently has been confirmed to perform at Latin America’s most important “Rock en Español” music festival, Vive Latino.
