A collection of reversals, by means of homage and likewise of invocation, deliver Virus to the current, one of many nice bands of the Argentine rock. The mission is formidable and can take particular and concrete form because the pandemic recedes, however the first tip of the iceberg has simply appeared: a six-song EP entitled Viruses: a pleasure journey, which was offered this Wednesday, August 25 on the M Road Bar, in Palermo.
Three authentic members have been current, the exact same Mario Serra and the brothers July and Marcelo Moura, who supported the launch and gave some particulars of what might occur sooner or later. “There will be a total of three EPs -said Marcelo- and in December a documentary will come out and the tour will be announced of the return and farewell of Virus ”.
“This future tour – Julio mirrored – is a bit the one we could not do in 1987 as a result of Federico received sick and we could not develop our music all through Latin America.”

The way it was conceived
In keeping with what they mentioned, this complete mission started to take form in October 2019, when the 2 Moura received collectively. Quickly they referred to as Mario and met with producer Roberto Costa, from PopArt. In February they signed a six-year contract and so they even did a rehearsal. “You don’t know how well it turned out!” Mentioned the drummer, underlining that that they had by no means stopped enjoying and it was only a matter of getting again collectively.
“It was very nice,” Marcelo added, “not only the same chemistry but also the maturity. We hadn’t played with Mario in about 20 years, but it was as if just six hours had passed ”.
Sadly, all of the plans have been truncated, as a result of quickly the obligatory isolation and they needed to pause the keenness and the expectation to start out. However now it is time to heat up the engines and this EP is only the start.
The album options basic songs like I can schedule myself, by Laser Beams; Pagan photographs, by Bruno Albano; Fuck of a relationship, by Potra, and two internationals: Perpetual loves by Chileans Javiera Mena and Alejandro Paz, and give me an indication, by Brazilians Moreno Veloso and Nacho Rodríguez.

The primary lower, with a video the place the three Viruses seem, is You need to get out of the internal gap, by Joaquin Vitole. In keeping with Julio, “It’s a very good version, it’s very cool and also our aesthetic. For us it is a great honor what all these artists did ”.
The formation of Virus for this return shall be accomplished with two skilled Virus musicians from the final 20 years: Patricio Fontana on keyboards and Ariel Naón on bass, in addition to guitarist Agustín Ferro, who was in Marcelo Moura’s solo mission. “In any case,” they make clear, “we are in total confusion and we cannot even rehearse. Everything will happen in a fluid way, as always happened ”.
On the finish of the speak, Marcelo shared a mirrored image: “We arose after the dictatorship, in a very tremendous period, and it was a golden decade in music. It does not seem casual to me that now, coming from a pandemic, there is an explosive rebound from the artistic. People are dying to dance and see shows. And Virus was always characterized by being a happy, positive and optimistic group, despite everything ”.
The singer of the group Indios is the protagonist of You need to get out of the internal gap, the primary tune that was launched from this EP.
“I feel that Viruses have been orbiting for a long time in my life, there was always a contact of the third type, inexplicable medium. And this is another one of those moments. “
“In addition, I always liked Federico’s figure and his body expression, beyond everything I studied about his inflections and metrics when singing,” he mentioned earlier than occurring stage and doing an acoustic model of Disposable love along with the soloist Uma Costa, the youngest artist on the Geiser label.
