Xibalba at Power of the Riff East, 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)


Xibalba have been pretty much perpetually active since releasing Hasta La Muerte in 2012. The band recently released a video for the song "Soledad" off that album, comprised entirely of homespun live footage and backstage antics taken over their last few years of roaming the country. The "antics" section is pretty much what you'd expect from a band that overtly worships both Madball and Obituary. Spoiler alert: they talk about money a lot and booze even more.

Xibalba are also part of a recently-announced North American tour in February and March headlined by long-running hardcore act Comeback Kid, who recorded a new album during the fall; Downpresser will be tagging along as well. The tour will stop at a number of festivals, including SXSW, Never Say Never Fest, and South By So What. It also includes an NYC stop at Santos Part House on February 26. No word on tickets yet, but you can keep checking Santos' Ticketweb page if you like.
