In the ever changing world we live in today, the music industry has been forever changed by the internet. Gone are the chain wide record stores were you can discover new bands and artists by finding records or CD’s with their music. Most bands now have to handle all aspects of their business, from crafting their songs, coming up with the money to record their music, book and promote their own shows and sell their own merchandise. It is very hard to sustain a living as a full time musician. Always a big fan of all types of music at Lethal Threat, we will feature a musician or band from time to time that we think you should check out and support their music and attend their shows. One such band we would like to highlight is Bull y Los Bufalos.
Bull y Los Bufalos is an international Rock Band that originated in Spain and is now based in Austin Texas. Lead singer and founder of the band Diego “Bull” Avello came to our attention after his many purchases of our Lethal Threat apparel. We reached out to Diego to thank him for his business and see if there was any way we could both work together. Having an apparel brand and having a band, may seem like we have nothing in common but in fact, we both are always trying to achieve the same goals. We both are always looking to find new customer/ fans, build awareness of our brand / band and always striving to reach greater goals. The journey of building your brand or band comes with many ups and downs, unexpected events both good and bad and if you don’t give up, eventually you will see the fruits or your hard work. So after a phone call with Diego, we found we had a lot in common and decided to try to help each other out. Us with helping him with artwork, him helping to promote our apparel by being a brand ambassador.
The music of Bull Y Los Bufalos is based on pure Rock n Roll with a subtle Spanish vibe. Their songs are both in English and Spanish representing a fascinating musical crossover. The band has christened their sound as “Stubborn Rock” based on the bands philosophy of never giving up or losing sight of their goals. This determination has seen the band play at major Biker festivals in the United States and Mexico, NBA basketball games, legendary Rock n Roll clubs such as the Whiskey a Go-Go and now this coming Tuesday, September 3rd, to have two songs featured in the popular Mayans MC television series on FX. Seems like their hard work and determination is paying off.
Like a biker facing a long journey, the road you may follow always has unexpected twists and turns, this was also the case for Diego”Bull” Avello. Starting out in a small town in Spain, Diego’s love for Rock N Roll would start a journey throughout Spain, Mexico and now the United States. Having lived life on the road touring and performing for countless years, the band, developed their unique sound, and perfected their powerful live performances.
The band now is based out of Austin, Texas. Austin is known as city for music. The yearly South by Southwest festival draws musicians and fans from around the world to showcase their music and discover new musical artists. Being inspired by Austin, Bull Y Los Bufalos created their first album in English named “Animal”
There is still a long way to go for the band, many more goals to achieve and many new faces to play to.
We at Lethal Threat, will continue to offer our support for a band that is Brave enough to Keep Rocking!
