Math Rock Duo The Littlest Viking To Release Latest Album “Feelings N Stuff”
Produced by David Benitez and The Littlest Viking at C&C Music Factory Studios, the band will begin their nationwide tour on October 18th, 2018
WHITTIER, CA: “I never spend too much time reflecting on what i should or shouldn’t have done after the album is recorded.” states Ruben Jesse Cortez, guitarist for The Littlest Viking. “The whole reason I write songs is not to convey some deep sense of artistic freedom or tell the stories of the emo journal I left in a shoe box at my parent’s place. I try to write and record the songs I love hearing.”
The two-member combo of guitar and drums also includes drummer Christopher Patrick Gregory whose music has been described as Math Rock by music critics. “We became interested in merging cerebral, precise prog rock with punk rock ethos/tempos/energy. I think this explains a lot” states Gregory.
Co Producer David Benitez (Fingers Cut Megamachine, Fitz and the Tantrums) was excited to be working with the band and explains their talents. “Metal Chris is the “J.K. Simmons from Whiplash” of the band “He can tell when songs are Russian or Dragon and is pretty sadistic about getting it right. It’s part of his genius. Ruben has absorbed so many thousands of hours of music that he just knows what he wants. His instincts are always right on and his riffs and guitar layers come to him easily. He’s also got the fastest rhythm hand in the west.”
The band has been featured and performed on various radio stations including KXLU and KUCI radio and has been praised by the OC Weekly and So Cal Music Today. The band has released two albums which include their critically acclaimed debut album “Labor and Lust” followed by their second self-titled release “The Littlest Viking.” The album “Movie Music Vol. 3” is a compilation of old EPs, rarities, etc. All albums were released on the bands record label Farewell My Little Viking Records.
The first leg of their nationwide tour begins on October 18th 2018 in Santa Ana, CA and ends November 19th in Oakland CA.
