Celebrating 36 years together, the East L.A. vets Los Lobos are marking a new milestone with the commencement work on their 18th record, the highly anticipated debut on Shout! Factory and follow-up to the lauded 2006 release The Town and The City, which drew four-star reviews from Rolling Stone, Mojo, The Independent, and many others.

Not one to repeat the same formula twice, what kind of record Los Lobos will make next is anyone’s guess. “We never really plan any album,” says Los Lobos’ saxophonist/keyboardist/percussionist and producer Steve Berlin. “Like with KikoColossal Head (the quintet’s 1992 and 1996 heady opuses that broke artistic ground both times), we just played the songs that showed up, naturally. With each project, we try to make our songwriting an artistic statement, where the stories we’re telling and the arrangements we’re composing get our point across. But to a certain extent, we make our songs opaque, mysterious. We leave it up to the listener to interpret… That’s the highest purpose of artists, we think – not to rob the spirit out of the work.”

About Los Lobos

Many musical acts are eclectic, but few are as unpredictable, noted, and respected. The multi-platinum Los Lobos has enjoyed a 36-year ride with the same line-up intact. The band has notched a number one single with its rendition of “La Bamba,” the 1987 Billboard smash that practically turned the group into a household name overnight, has won three Grammys, and has sold countless records. It has shared the stage with acts as varied as Dylan, The Clash, and U2 and has received tremendous critical acclaim–from a major label debut, How Will the Wolf Survive? (which made Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time) to the quintet’s most recent work, 2006’s The Town and The City.
