The highly-anticipated U.S. debut of Chilean rockers Los Bunkers hits stores March 28th on Nacional Records. After a steady rise to fame in Chile and three albums under their belts, Los Bunkers are ready to bring their Brit-pop infused rock to U.S. shores. Vida de Perros (“A Dog’s Life”) is sure to please fans of The Kinks, Franz Ferdinand, and The Strokes. The album was received with open arms by Chilean audiences in the tens of thousands during the “Gira de Perros” tour, and the album’s heavy radio play in Mexico of the first single “Llueve Sobre La Ciudad” has created a hit single throughout the country.
Comprised of two sets of brothers and another friend, Los Bunkers is Gonzalo Lopez (bass), Mauricio Duran (guitar and vocals), Alvaro Lopez (vocals and acoustic guitar), Mauricio Basualto (drums) and Francisco Duran (guitars, keyboards, harmonica and vocals).
Los Bunkers formed in 1999 in the city of Concepcion, Chile with influences including The Beatles, Sloan, and Supergrass. They eventually migrated to Santiago and released three albums, “Los Bunkers” (2001), “Canción de Lejos” (2002) and “La Culpa” (2003) before signing to Nacional Records for their first U.S. release “Vida de Perros”.
