Biography

Medellin, Colombia (1986 – present)

Estados Alterados was formed in 1986 by a group of young students in Medellin, Colombia: Elvis (Fernando Sierra, vocals), Tato (Gabriel Lopera, keyboards & programming), and Ricky (Ricardo Restrepo, drums & vocals), who stepped in for his friend Mana (Carlos Uribe) after he passed away in a car accident. Since its start, Estados Alterados has explored electronic rock, then known and admired by few in Latin America, going on to become a pioneering band in the Spanish-speaking world. Their 1990 self-titled debut album experimented with acoustic and electronic sounds inspired by the synthesizers and sequencers of the time. They count Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Devo, and Gary Newman, among others, as their influences.

Their latest effort, “Romances Cientificos” (Scientific Romances), was released in 2010 after an absence of more than ten years from the studio. The cutting edge sound of this twelve-track album produced by UK native Phil Vinall (Placebo, Radiohead, Zoé, Elastica) confirms Estados Alterados’ return with its uncompromising innovation intact. In March of this same year, the band launched its Latin American tour with Coldplay in Bogotá, followed by festival appearances in Mexico City (Vive Latino), Medellín (Altavoz), and Bogotá (Rock al Parque 2010).

Estados Alterados became a pioneer of the modern Colombian Rock scene, paving the road for others to follow. Juanes, then singer/guitarist for Ekhymosis, toured with the band as a guest member. Estados Alterados also collaborated with Héctor Buitrago and Andrea Echeverri who then went on to form Aterciopelados.

    recién los conozco, es decir, los había oído pero no sabia el nombre de la banda, ahora que lo se creo que seré una fan oficial, realmente me tocan el corazón con sus bellas melancólicas y movidas canciones
