Pedro “Perico” Arguello plays bass (and handles backing vocals) for the Latin American rock quartet, Prime Ministers. The band formed in 2007 and since its inception has been slowly wowing audiences and critics alike with their brand of catchy, modern rock.

The track comes from their sophomore full-length album, NOW, which is due out this Spring. Check out this gear review wherein Arguello talks about his 63 Precision Bass guitar.
