The band was recently featured in Twitter's 5th anniversary video alongside Hillary Clinton, Snoop Dogg and Serena Williams and is now ready to capture more international musical audiences (they are originally from Venezuela) with the U.S. release of their debut album both on digital (May 3rd on iTunes) and physical (May 10th) formats. Needless to say, you better grab a copy! Here's the press release from Nacional Records:
La Vida Boheme’s debut album, ‘Nuestra,’ owes as much to influences like LCD Soundsystem and The Clash as it does to Mercedes Sosa and Mano Negra. Early in their career, the group won a “battle of the bands” contest and began to plug themselves into the local dive bar circuit. A devoted following quickly formed as thousands of fans were coming out to shows to sing along to songs that weren’t released or even recorded properly. Soon radio stations were calling the band demanding a single from a record that had not been finished.
An underground swell of support was developing with the band’s fanbase calling itself “La Resistance” - quite apropos in the age of Hugo Chavez. La Vida Boheme leads a new movement of Venezuelan youth who despite government regulations and rampant violence, want music and the arts in their lives.
