Rising from the heart of the rugged southwest with looks to fit, Next 2 the Tracks is rock & roll at its roots. Groove, great songwriting and sexy guitar riffs. Forming in El Paso TX, and Albuquerque, NM and launching their first US tour,(How the West is One) in 2012... Now in March of 2014 the band takes on all of North America with a tour entitled the North American BIG GAME TOUR. Christian Talamantes (vocals& guitar), Jonny Bang (bass), and Todd Seelau (drums). The Track’s sound shows the influence of some of the best groove/blues based rock groups ever i.e., Led Zeppelin, Guns N Roses, Cream, Double Trouble, The Black Crowes, with hints of the bands Southwestern roots.
"Next 2 the Tracks" independently released their debut CD Rain in 2005 and went on to win the Best Pop/Rock band award at the New York International Music Festival. They returned to the studio in 2008 to record The Caballo de Lumbre EP which features only hand percussion and a large dose of acoustic guitar. Caballo de Lumbre was recorded in Hollywood, CA and features well known Los Angeles produce/engineer Dave Dominguez (Guns n Roses, Staind, Papa Roach). Next 2 the Tracks is currently working on songs for their third studio recording which like Caballo, will feature songs heavily influenced by the American Southwest. "Our goal is to take the beauty, and culture of the Western US to the world. We love the mix of Mexican American, Native American, Cowboy and Spanish cultures that make up this region of the U.S. The beauty of the desert, mountains, forests and all of their amazing wildlife are a real inspiration to our music."
