Sour Soul is a four piece indie/psych rock act, formed in Mexico City in 2007. They quickly built a loyal following by delivering high energy performances that captured the best elements from the many styles that have influenced each member of the group. In 2009, the band released it’s debut album entitled Liquid Sky Divers, which was co-produced by music legend Stephen Stuart Short. Sour Soul re-released the album in 2010 with several new tracks produced by themselves. The additional songs enjoyed a warm reception from fans who recognized the maturity of the band’s sound.
In 2011, Sour Soul released it’s highly anticipated encore album L’appel du Vide. Grammy award winner, Justin Leeah (Sparta, At the Drive In, Intocable, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), engineered this experimental concept album that took the group’s sound in directions that they had never gone before. Their artistic bravery was not overlooked. On March 8-14, 2011, Sour Soul’s single – “Fum Fum Fum” from L’appel du Vide was chosen by Starbucks (Mexico) as their “Music Pick of The Week.”
As seriously as Sour Soul takes their studio productions, it’s truly their relentless touring schedule that has created an international demand for their performances. In addition to the many cities and festivals in Mexico that the group has played, Sour Soul has toured the U.S six times in two years. The band has performed in most of the major music markets in the US including Los Angeles, Nashville, Chicago, New York, Brooklyn, Austin, Las Vegas, Denver and New Orleans. In 2011 , the band played 93 shows to diverse crowds across the US, making a total of 200 shows performed in the US between 2009 and 2011.
On December 2nd, Sour Soul will release a new split vinyl EP including their new single “Kill-A-Head,” with San Diego’s A Scribe Amidst the Lions, the release took place in Mexico City’s Salon Covadonga.
