After building a global fan following and capturing the attention and respect of a lineup of rock legends, Monterrey Mexico hard rock sister trio The Warning have unleashed MAYDAY, their hotly-awaited debut EP via LAVA/Republic Records/Universal Music.
The Warning, which features sisters Daniela Daniela "Dany" [guitar, lead vocals, piano], Paulina "Pau" [drums, vocals, piano], and Alejandra "Ale" Villarreal [bass, piano, backing vocals], is a hard-hitting power trio that captivates listeners with their infectious and unapologetic rock. Alongside singer-songwriter Alessia Cara, the band recently released their new cover of Metallica's "Enter Sandman," which was featured on The Metallica
Blacklist album, the 30-year anniversary reissue of Metallica's iconic self-titled 5th album.
The sisters kicked off their music career by building a powerful online presence, amassing over 120 million YouTube views and 15 million streams. Soon, they found themselves performing with everyone from Alice Cooper
to Def Leppard. They also graced the stage at Mother of All Rock Festival as the only Mexican band and opened two sold-out Monterrey shows for The Killers
and for Def Leppard
in Mexico City and Guadalajara.
Produced by the legendary David
Beneath (Paramore, Bring Me The Horizon, Breaking Benjamin), MAYDAY is a white-knuckle audio ride that dives hard into topics that affect today's younger generation from love, technology, dealing with generation gaps, anxiety, and the intense pressure to suppress emotions.
"We grew a lot by working with David," said Ale. "He really helped us refine the sound. We've matured, but our love for energy is still there!"
The Warning moved into high gear earlier this year with the release of a stream of singles off of their album. They quickly racked up a million streams upon the release of "CHOKE," the album's first single. Meanwhile, "EVOLVE," the second single, muses on the ever-present obsession with evolving and examines its dehumanizing impact. Recorded in the band's native Spanish, "MARTIRIO" dives into the strength derived from acceptance of suffering.
The EP kicks off with the fiery "DISCIPLE," showcasing a band that has evolved and mastered the art of building tension, deftly moving through stunning signature changes, and exploding into compelling choruses that demand the listener to shout-sing along. The album also features the punk-tinged "ANIMOSITY," which sends up a clear warning about feelings masked but not buried as well as "Z," a rebellious song about Generation Z, youth, vices, virtues and the age in which we currently live.
"We are so proud to present the first half of our album through the MAYDAY EP," said the band. "It's a blend of six well-balanced songs that touch topics close to our personal experiences - something that hasn't been the case in our previous works - brought together with newfound musical ways of expressing them!"
The Warning has drawn wide acclaim from media including Loudwire, Rolling Stone and Rolling Stone Mexico, and Billboard Argentina. In addition, Pau was called out by Olivia
Rodrigo and WILLOW for her stunning drum covers of their songs "brutal" and "t r a n s p a r e n t s o u l" on TikTok.
Coming soon: The Warning will tear up the Welcome To Rockville Festival in November. At the beginning of next year, they'll take the stage for a two-night sold-out run at the Troubadour and open for the Foo Fighters
in front of a 60,000-person crowd at Mexico City's Foro Sol. Fans can also look forward to hearing the remainder of the trio's third full length album in 2022.
The Warning infuse rock music with a much-needed shot of adrenaline. The Monterrey, Mexico trio of sisters—Daniela "Dany" [guitar, lead vocals, piano], Paulina "Pau" [drums, vocals, piano], and Alejandra "Ale" Villarreal [bass, piano, backing vocals]—charge forward with head-spinning riffs, unpredictable rhythms, stadium-size beats, and skyscraping vocals. They stand out as the rare presence equally at home on network television and on stage at Heaven
& Hell Festival. If anybody can usher rock's comeback along, it's these three ladies. After exploding online with one viral moment after another, The Warning parlayed this momentum into a series of independent releases, including Escape the Mind EP , XXI Century Blood , and Queen
of the Murder Scene . They graced a stacked bill at Mother of All Rock Festival as the only Mexican band and opened up two sold out Monterrey shows for The Killers
and for Def Leppard
in Mexico City and Guadalajara. After quietly amassing over 120 million YouTube views and 10 million streams, they surge to the forefront of hard rock with a series of new music being released on LAVA Records in 2021.
