Cooking up a sonic stew that combines hardcore, metal, punk, and other flavors, Desmadre is a musical collective based out of the City of Angels.

Formed in 2021, the group has proudly waved the flag for their Latin roots, putting it down for LAHC all the while. The band even dropped a cumbia track called "Sufrir" last year, a boundary-busting move that further showcased Desmadre's musical prowess.

Desmadre's latest single, "Clownin' Around," drives forward to a metallic hardcore groove and features guest vocals from Nathan Rebelledo of Xibalba, a band who's legacy in Southern California heavy music has already been cemented.

Today, No Echo is proud to bring you the music video premiere of "Clownin' Around." Directed by Luis Hernández, the video captures the essence of Desmadre's ethos, blending gritty urban landscapes with striking imagery and captivating performances. Naturally, it was shot in Los Angeles:
