Grandparents are back

Los Abuelos de la Nada, one of the most emblematic bands of national rock, are back with a new formation and unpublished songs.


On Saturday,  May 2 ,   Los Abuelos de la Nada  play in Buenos Aires. It seems like news from the past, but not: we are talking about what is going to happen during 2020. A new band formation, with   Miguel Abuelo 's son and nephew  as members, will tour  Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Mexico  . In it, they will include the usual classics and unpublished songs.

“Monday morning”, “Things of Me”, “American Tuning”, “Hymn of My Heart”, “Meditate Sun”, “Go More”, “Chalaman”, “Zig Zag”, “ Thousand Hours ”, are some of the themes that we all remember and that will be part of the shows. In addition, the band is recording new songs. Soon the new album,  Luces y Bengalas , will be released with unpublished material and several songs composed by Miguel Abuelo.
