New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The immigrant rock band Making Movies released 'Accidente' the band's first single following up their critically acclaimed album ameri'kana. The single is released while the band is in Mexico City, preparing for their concert at the Auditorio Nacional with Rubén Blades. Making Movies will open the concert and be joined by Blades to perform their collaborative single "No Te Calles", the first track on Paraiso Road Gang nominated for the Latin Grammy Album of the Year.

Enrique Chi, singer/songwriter of Making Movies explains, "'I think there is a profound clarity in the darkest moments of our lives, that feeling when you've just survived a car wreck or you are facing the loss of a loved one. All of a sudden big life decisions don't seem so confusing and priorities are instantly re-aligned." Reciting the lyrics in the song, he continues-- "there is a romance to it, the narrator is asking to be joined and stay in that place of clarity, 'solo existe el momento,' only the moment exists, there is no past and there is no future all we have is now." The art depicts "Cheryl," an award winning 1960 Austin Healy 3000 race car that was in an accident as the band was brainstorming cover art for the single. "The car was owned by a friend of the band and his accident felt like more than a coincidence," says Diego Chi, bassist, "He took this incredibly tragic photograph [of the car] and we wanted to turn it into something beautiful."

Making Movies is ending a landmark year that began with Rolling Stone premiering their rollicking anti-corruption collab with Rubén Blades, No Te Calles and was featured on NPR's Best Songs of 2019. Making Movies' following release ameri'kana features Blades and members of Los Lobos, Flor de Toloache, and Ozomatli. Blades offered himself as a guide to the band during the process and appears on three tracks of the record, including Delilah, a song Blades co-wrote with Lou Reed, which called, "an epic musical collaboration brought together by the topic of immigration." The band has toured with Jesse & Joy, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Flor de Toloache, Los Lobos, and will join Rubén Blades in Mexico City at the Auditorio Nacional November 20th.
