NYC’s TOXIC TITO have just released their video “Got to Move On” via Outlaws of the Sun. The track is from their upcoming album Bestia which will be released in August. Toxic Tito is a New York City psychedlic/punk/metal/grunge project coming for your head. The band says:”This album is a real punch in the gut, no fucking around here. Original, and full on “Balls to the walls”!! Rock Music has gone stale and moldy, pretentious and ass kissing. We don’t do that.”
They seek to exorcise the demons from the human race, sell a shitload of albums, and get on a Scorsese movie. This is a band of consummate professionals sharing an anarchistic ‘devil may care’ attitude. There are no expectations, only the desire to document what was once a good boy.
The bands story starts in 1977 when the Italian-Venezuelan Luis Accorsi formed his first band, Janz Kappela, who were perhaps the first punk band in Venezuela. From there life took him to New York City where he launched a career as an art dealer and played countless shows at the legendary CBGB’s with bands like Manslaughter and Cracked Latin. He had become a fixture of the scene. In 2014 The Flux Machine – was formed, bringing Accorsi back to the heart of New York City’s thriving rock and roll scene. A few years later he would launch a brand new project, Toxic Tito which sought to take on the world of metal.
Looking forward, Toxic Tito are preparing to release a new album, entitled Bestia It’s a vicious and ambitious record building off of the insanity of quarantine. Drawing on everything from ancient problems to the joy of summers arrival it is a bloodthirsty offering from the band. Accorsi’s massive catalog comes to life with the group as they move forward in crafting some of the most interesting heavy metal to emerge from New York in years. If you want to get slammed into a punk infused rager… have we got the band for you!
