Vetusta Morla, iconic band in the Spanish alternative rock scene, came for the first to Germany in 2014. In Spain and Latin America, they are considered one of the greatest bands to play live. Back in 2009 they carried out successful tours through Argentina, Mexico, Columbia and the USA. Their powerful performances and sold-out concerts have made them win a loyal and a solid fandom. The band from Madrid formed by six friends ten years ago has so far released four successful albums Un día en el mundo (2008) and Mapas (2011), La Deriva (2014) and Mismo Sitio, Distinto Lugar (2017). Both the band and the records have received numerous awards, such as the “Premios de la Música” (the Spanish equivalent to the Brit Awards) which they have won three times, four UFI Awards (Independent Music Award), as well as two Rolling Stone awards, among others.
Vetusta Morla, leading Spanish independent rock band, return with “La Deriva” album and tour to Germany in November and December 2015.
Special German edition of album with two exclusive bonus tracks will be released November 20, 2105.
In autumn 2014 Vetusta Morla came to Germany for the very first time to play three shows in Berlin, Hamburg and Cologne. At that time they came as one of Spain's leading alternative and truly independent rock bands, backed by the continuing success of their then recently released album “La Deriva” and the power, intensity and audience enthusiasm of their live shows.
Now, almost a year on, VM have become a true phenomenon, selling out the largest halls and playing the biggest festivals in their home country, but also in Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, UK and the USA. They return to Germany as one of Spain's most popular rock bands and give fans and music lovers the rare opportunity to see them in small clubs. The kind of places they have outgrown in the Spanish speaking world.
Vetusta Morla have released three regular studio albums so far:
Un Día en el Mundo (A Day in the World, 2008, Platinum record in Spain)
Mapas (Maps, 2011, Golden Record in Spain)
La Deriva (The Drift, 2014, Gold Record in Spain)
All came out on their own label, Pequeño Salto Mortal, which they founded as an alternative to the usual paths of the record industry, that seemed to have no room for them when they first appeared on the music scene.
Their latest album, La Deriva, more than any of its predecessors, is a result of its circumstances, hero and victim of its process and its context.
