A Gang Member from San Diego and a Punk from TJ are the Creators of ‘Cholo Goth’

If your parents ever worried about you listening to “devil worshipper music” or warned you about hanging out with cholos, listen to the band Prayers when they’re not around. Why?

THIS is Prayers:

Umm…

What’s SD Killwave?

This is all you need to know: it’s Cholo Goth.

Prayers create songs about heartbreak, violence and surviving life on the streets over ’80s-inspired electronic beats. And it WORKS.

Singer Leafar Seyer is a member of one of San Diego’s oldest gangs.

But wait, Seyer also considers himself a “Goth kid.”

So why doesn’t Seyer do gangsta rap?

In 2013, he formed Prayers with Dave Parley.

It became their debut album, SD Killwave.

That’s a clip from the track “Ready to Bleed.” So what makes these dudes get along so well?

They’re both Mexican immigrants.

And they don’t drink or do drugs.

After dropping an EP called Gothic Summer last year, Prayers are back with a new album.

Here’s the music video for the title track “Young Gods.” It’s like a Cholo Goth version of Michael Jackson’s video for “Beat It” –with actual gang members.

Yes, those dudes are throwing real madrazos.

So what’s their mission? To flip stereotypes on their head.

Puerto Rican band Los Rivera Destino are back with their new single “Castigo” featuring Pedro Capó. The song is the first single from their long awaited album which is due to be released this summer.

Castigo” is the best of both worlds: fusing Bolero and Dembow, creating a fresh take on songs we would listen to at the club.

We had the chance to interview Los Rivera Destino for Latido Music by mitú, and they talked about filming the music video, songs that they would like to see with Bolero covers, working with Bad Bunny again, and more.
