TOUNDRA: Launch new track ‘Kingston Falls’

Spanish instrumentalist rockers Toundra are set to release their fifth studio album ‘Vortex’ on April 27th, 2018, following the success of ´IV´, which reached an historic #2 in the Spanish charts.

Last month saw the launch of the video for the first single ‘Cobra’, and now they are pleased to launch a brand new track called ‘Kingston Falls’.

Listen now here:



The band comments:

“This song was the second to last composed for this new album. The most electric and short one we have done so far. We needed to explore what it was to write a song like this because we felt the whole record needed it. A shot of light. It ended up being one of Santi’s (the producer) favourite songs.”

Their previous video for ‘Cobra’ was created by Jorge Escalona using photographic material from Pulitzer Prize winner Manu Brabo and video material from well-known Spanish journalist Gonzo.

Watch that now here:



The album reviews have started to come in, with Prog Magazine (UK) calling it “expansive, emotive music, appealing to our hearts as much as our heads.”

As mentioned previously, the title of the album is ‘Vortex’, as the band explain:

"On September 19th in 2012 we arrived at a venue called 'Vortex Surfer Musiklub' in Siegen, a small town in Germany. We played there, the venue got packed and everything about that night, including the warm welcome from everybody working there, was incredible. We fell in love with that small venue and the house next to it where we slept that night.

"Since then, we played Vortex five or six times and there has always been that same great fond feeling from the people there. So, this upcoming album is called 'Vortex'. We leave behind the roman numbers and want to use this as a way to thank all the promoters, people working in venues, labels, agencies, fans… and everyone who has helped us over the years to live this dream. We can't wait for you to hear some of the music"

The album will be released on special edition CD digipak, gatefold black LP + CD & as digital download.
