Colombian music icons Aterciopelados are back with their just-released new studio album Oye (Nacional Records). The album climbed to #1 on iTunes� top Latin albums chart by the end of its first day of release (ahead of Man�, Shakira, and Juanes), and has remained at the top of the chart following a wave of building critical acclaim and radioplay for first single �Complemento�. Aterciopelados are returning to the U.S. for a major market tour in support of their new album �Oye� that kicks off in Miami on October 28th. The band will also return to leading tastemaker station KCRW in Los Angeles on Nov. 8th for a special performance on �Morning Becomes Eclectic�.

With the critical and commercial success of their previous Grammy-nominated album �Gozo Poderoso�, Aterciopelados landed on the Top 10 of the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart as well as a coveted appearance on the �Tonight Show with Jay Leno�. The multiple Grammy-nominated Colombian pop/alternative act has returned with their first new studio album in five years, �OYE� (Oct. 24th - Nacional Records).
Aterciopelados co-founders Andrea Echeverri (vocals, guitars) and Hector Buitrago (bass, arrangements, producer) both released attention-grabbing solo albums in the past year (Echeverri�s received two Grammy nominations), further building anticipation for the band�s new studio set. The new disc is produced by Hector Buitrago from Aterciopelados and mixed by Thom Russo (Johnny Cash, Juanes, Kinky).
With �Oye�, Aterciopelados return to a more organic, rock sound reminiscent of their earlier work on albums like �La Pipa de La Paz� (Peace Pipe). �Complemento�, the album�s first single, is an upbeat declaration of love from someone who has found her soulmate; the person that complements her. The album also features Aterciopelados� trademark social and political commentary on songs like �Oye Mujer� which asks of women �are you a human being, or the erotic fantasy of some guy?� and �Paces�, a call to action for peace.
Aterciopelados formed in Bogota, Colombia in the early 90�s, debuting with the 1994 album �Con El Corazon en La Mano�. The group subsequently rose to fame in Colombia and internationally, with Aterciopelados having just completed a highly successful tour of Spain where they introduced European audiences to �Oye�.
