Mexicans with Guns Releases Album Sneak Peek




He's baaaaack

UPDATED 9:20 p.m. December 4, 2013

After several months, if not years, of pursuing other projects and collaborating with a friend named Diego Bernal (aka District 1's resident DJ/councilman), Ernest Gonzales is ready to release another album under his Mexicans with Guns moniker.

As the following sneak peek track demonstrates, it's about damn time! If the song sounds a little 1989 Super Nintendo to you, well, that's because it's the soundtrack to a fun Aztlan-inspired throwback game sitting atop the Mexicans with Guns tumblr right now.

We have some questions out to Gonzales about the album's release date, title and such boring stuff. Gonzales said in a text message that he doesn't immediately have a plan to release the record, but if you play the game on his tumblr page and win, you'll be able to listen to the album in its entirety. Until then, check out this 8-bitty, finger-snappin' jam (kiddie shouts courtesy of Gonzales' own little munchkins).
