The music world can be a massive place with bands and artists of all sizes and sonic persuasions. The world of independent touring musicians can be as equally a small world, forming tight-knit connections and lasting friendships. The formation of Los Angeles based band Mas Malo is a result of the latter. The group formed initially with friends Bryan Thanh (Post Season) and Alonzo Iniguez (World War, Truce, Vain and Valor) getting together after Thanh moved to Los Angeles. Not long after, the new project really became to take shape, as Sebastian Egurvide (Such A Mess) joined the mix, followed by Anthony Covarrubias (Seditionist) and Jesse Cuevas (World War).

Although its members have extensive experience in the worlds of pop-punk, post-rock and hardcore, Mas Malo was ultimately born out of a desire for the group to do something different and explore the boundaries of mixing genres and styles. While in many ways you’ll find familiarity, the experience is sure to be completely new. That is the essence of Mas Malo.

The band will be releasing the debut EP later this spring via Know Hope Records.

Of their new single “Dead To Me” the band says, “Loss is a difficult concept to grasp and not fast or easy to get over. ‘Dead to me’ speaks on the process of losing someone to suicide, the trouble, the endless thoughts of ‘what if’ and the constant reminder that pain is far beyond the surface.”
