Rhyece O’Neill & The Narodniks launch their third studio album “Los Diablos” at Cactus Room Melbourne. Recorded in Prague, Czech Republic last year, the album comes out on the new Melbourne based label Cactus Records. “Los Diablos” is the third and final installment of a triptych of albums based on the Hieronymus Bosch painting “The Garden of Earthly Delights”. The triptych began with 2017’s “Übermensch Blues” then 2018’s “Death of a Gringo”.
Last year the band embarked on a mammoth European tour playing over 41 dates across the continent including 3 shows at the legendary Binic Blues festival in France. While in the Czech Republic they recorded Los Diablos in a non stop round the clock three day session with iconic engineer and producer Milan Cimfe. Milan has worked with Bowie, Lou Reed and Kris Kristofferson.
For release December 20, 2019 on Cactus Records.
