Following the release of their latest album, ‘Vortex’ (April 27th) Spanish instrumental rockers Toundra just premiered a mini documentary that was filmed during the secret show Toundra played at the club that gave the name to the record, on the day of the album release. In its first week, ‘Vortex’ reach the #4 at the Official Spanish Charts.

The video (directed and edited by Nacho Montero & Holy Cuervo), tells the story of that special evening and reasons that led the Spanish Instrumentalists to call the album ‘Vortex’, speaking about music, passion and life on the road.
Toundra comments: “Going to Vortex is like getting home; even since the first day, it has always been a very special place for us. When we announced the name of the album the immediately got in touch to organise that release party, which turned out becoming one of the most special shows we have ever done, one that we keep very fond feelings of because of all the friends we shared it with. The video is a nice glimpse testimony of that. And a good placebo while we wait to get there again”.
Stay tuned, because the band will be announcing their next European run next week
