Chesky Records welcomes Cristian Machado, whose upcoming album, Hollywood y Sycamore will be released this fall. Machado is best known for his time as lead vocalist for Latin Metal band, ill niño.

“I’m announcing my official departure from ill niño. We’ve reached a fair settlement and I want to wish the band luck on their new journey. The music I wrote for the band will always exist in my heart and hopefully in yours. In other news, my acoustic album is done and definitely shines a very bright light on the future. The first single “Die Alone” will be out late summer, it may be one of the best ones I’ve ever written. The album “Hollywood Y Sycamore” will be out late fall 2020 on Chesky Records known for their work with Macy Gray, McCoy Tyner, Ron Carter, and more. I want to thank those who through this ordeal have offered me guidance and given me faith. Thank you familia for having me be your comandante for over 20 years, it’s now time for this little plane to fly.”

Cristian Machado, the godfather of Latin metal, best known for his tenure as lead vocalist for ill niño, will be releasing his debut solo album, Hollywood y Sycamore this fall on Chesky Records. The album sees Machado abandon the screams and screeching guitars in favor of his eclectic Latin influences and transcendent bilingual songwriting.

Hollywood y Sycamore includes completely new original songs (led by ethereal single “Die Alone”), new arrangements of some previous ill niño songs (“How Can I Live”, “Numb”), and covers from Pink Floyd (“Welcome to the Machine”), Life of Agony (“Weeds”), and a spell-binding take on Post Malone’s “Blame It On Me”.

Hollywood y Sycamore serves as the newest release for Chesky sub-label, Coconut Bay, which sees a departure from the single mic style live recording Chesky Records is known for and combines elements of live recording with the added impact layering provides, all captured in digital high resolution.
