Celebrating a two-decade legacy, Latin metallers Ill Niño have announced a tour supporting the 20-year anniversary of their album, Confession. The trek will include support from special guests Through Fire and Dropout Kings. Ill Niño is also slated to issue their new album, Immortals, in the Summer.

Ill Niño’s Marcos Leal comments:

“20 years ago, I stood in line after school at our local record store, On Cue, to purchase a record that would inevitably change my life, ILL NIÑO’s Confession! I learned all the songs back to back to sing with my first band ever. Fast forward 20 years later, I’m singing for the band I grew up idolizing, and relearning the songs that were the soundtrack of so many of our teenage years! I look forward to celebrating 20 years of Confession with all the fans, and ready to bring you the best NIÑO show you have ever seen. See you guys in the pit!”

And Dave Chavarri adds:

“I remember every detail while recording, and co-producing this album Confession with my brother, iconic producer Bob Marlette (Rob Zombie, Black Sabbath). While recording Confession, I never realized it would become ILL NIÑO’s biggest, and most successful release to date. Confession is angry, dark, and beautiful. I am proud to bring everyone the 20 Year Anniversary of Confession!! Come celebrate with us.”
