About: Red Queen Band is an experimental electronic rock band formed during 2005 in Mexico City by twin brothers Daniel and David, since their early days, Red Queen was well known for their aggressive, electronic and frenetic live shows. These exciting shows ended up calling the attention of Alan Mcgee (Oasis, Glasvegas, The Libertines) dubbing the five piece Red McQueen during one of his visits to Mexico City. During 2007, Red Queen Band recorded their first studio EP, consisting of a three track album produced by Yamil Rezc. During this same year, Nike (Latin America) launched a campaign using the bands first single “Baby Machine” as the main theme for their TV advertisements. In 2008, Rolling Stone magazine (Latin America) published an article about new upcoming Latin American bands. Red Queen was included as one of the most promising mexican underground rock bands. Sonidos Urbanos (Urban Sounds), a book that covers the underground rock scene in mexico also recognized the band as one of the most influential groups in the mexican underground scene. In 2009, "Hombre Vegetal" and "La Palida", two singles from the band's spanish EP "Adult Frutman", were constantly played through out the year and received great acceptance by latin audiences through Mexico´s top Rock/Alternative radio stations, Reactor (105.7 FM), Ibero (90.9 FM), RMX, Grita Radio and others. This exposure helped the band launch an extensive tour across Mexico. During 2010, Red Queen Band recorded and produced their first full length album “Talk Show Ghost”. The album’s frenetic glitch punk sound helped the band develop a new and exciting live show that has been referred constantly as a “must see show” by the mexican indie music scene and local media over the past few months. Red Queen Band are currently recording their next album and are preparing a U.S. tour.
