From the group: we hold ourselves to a very high standard. Creating pieces of music that stretch the definition of what traditional latin music can be and modernizing our favorite classic sounds for a younger audience is an enormous cultural responsibility and we gladly accept the challenge.
Artists Volcán has shared the stage with (only Grammy award winners listed): Jimmy Gonzales and Grupo Mazz Flaco Jimenez
“When it comes to writing lyrics, my influence is inspired by horror movies I watched as a kid or stories of the supernatural, “said Nathan Quintanilla, the band’s vocalist and rhythm guitarist. “That enticing feeling I get when seeing or hearing these things is what I try to shape into lyrics. You may also hear a song about drinking a whole lot and burning in hell, but those usually come from simply being under the influence.”
The band, rounded out by lead guitarist Mark Villanueva, drummer Kevin Ruiz, and upright bassist Chris Stone got it’s start in 2010 as a solo project to Quintanilla. The music went through various dark western and psychobilly styles before solidifying into its present sound and stable lineup. “We've been told that the music has a bluesy, “spaghetti-western touch” to “deliciously dark and exuberantly hook filled”, said Quintanilla. This makes them unique to the San Antonio music scene. “Some say there aren’t many bands like us here in San Antonio, so that’s flattering enough for me.
Their latest release, Last Days of Magic, is a Stephen King-inspired, femme-fatale-filled concept album that investigates the space where science-fiction and mysticism meet modern society.
And while Chicago will always be home, North by North has set out on the life-adventure of The Never-Ending Tour--performing over 300 shows since early 2017, and showing no signs of stopping. Along the way, North by North has had the fantastic opportunity to share the stage with bands including Tegan & Sara, Sheer Mag, IAMDYNAMITE, The Pack A.D., and more.
