ABOUT SONS OF TEXAS:
Proud disciples of Pantera, Alice In Chains, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and even Vicente Fernández, the McAllen, TX quintet—Mark Morales [vocals], Mike Villareal [drums], Nick Villarreal [bass], Jon Olivarez [guitar], and Jes De Hoyos [guitar]—rise up from the Rio Grande valley with a rollicking hard rock sound steeped in metallic intricacy, grunge soul, southern-fried blues, and just the right amount of Tejano spirit.
