il nino band 2023

ILL NIÑO will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their “Confession” album by embarking on “The 20 Year Anniversary Of Confession” tour in May

The band will be bringing along THROUGH FIRE and DROPOUT KINGS in the support roles.

ILL NIÑO‘s current lineup consists of vocalist Marcos Leal, guitarist Marc Rizzo, bassist Laz Pina, drummer Dave Chavarri, rhythm guitarist Salvadore Dominguez (UPON A BURNING BODY) and percussionists Daniel Couto and Miggy Sanchez.

Leal said: “20 years ago I stood in line after school at our local record store, On Cue, to purchase a record that would inevitably change my life, ILL NIÑO‘s ‘Confession‘! I learned all the songs back to back to sing with my first band ever. Fast forward 20 years later, I’m singing for the band I grew up idolizing, and relearning the songs that were the soundtrack of so many of our teenage years!

“I look forward to celebrating 20 years of ‘Confession‘ with all the fans, and ready to bring you the best NIÑO show you have ever seen. See you guys in the pit!”

Added Chavarri: “I remember every detail while recording, and co-producing this album ‘Confession‘ with my brother, iconic producer Bob Marlette (ROB ZOMBIE, BLACK SABBATH). While recording ‘Confession‘, I never realized it would become ILL NIÑO‘s biggest and most successful release to date. ‘Confession‘ is angry, dark and beautiful. I am proud to bring everyone the 20-year anniversary of ‘Confession‘!! Come celebrate with us.”
