(Fictional) Press Release
For Immediate Release
Location: Queretaro, Mexico:
Date: Friday December 8th 2023 at 8:30 pm
Subject: The Warning – Mexico Launches Moon Shot
Agencia: Mexican Space Agency (AEM) – via Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores
“Mexico launched its first mission “to the moon and beyond” from the previously top secret, underground, Auditorio Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez launch site in Querétaro, Mexico. The Gobierno de Mexico, for the first time, publicly acknowledged this clandestine program – one that has been in development for over 15 years. NASA, the U.S. Department of Defense, NATO, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, EEU, United Nations, and the U.S. Embassy in Ciudad de Mexico have confirmed the launch and parameters of this mission.”
Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) has proclaimed (the quote below is fiction for the purposes of crafting the creative context for this article) December 8, 2023 as:
“Today we officially delivered the gift of The Warning to the world. The Warning is Mexico’s gift to the rock n roll universe. The purpose of a gift is to be shared with others and inspire. After decades of planning and preparation, we unwrap and present to you Mexico’s magnificent, maniacally gifted mavens of metal music. They are superb role models for young people, women, and a source of immense national pride. We fully expect this crew to continue to produce meaningful and magical magnetic musical mastery for millions to enjoy in the millennia to come…with velocity, originality, vitality and ferocity, ” he added.
Mission Control: Monterrey, MX
Flight Directors: Luis Villareal & Rudy Joffroy
Mission Production: David Bendeth
The mission objectives are to creatively explore and establish new charts, coordinates and colonies in the rock n roll universe…to boldly explore where man and metal music have never gone before.
The Flight Crew:
The mission is piloted by a crew of three young, uniquely gifted, eminently talented women from Monterrey, Mexico. What is even more inconceivable is that they are sisters. Yes – we mean like – real, genetic sisters.
They are not aeronautical engineers, trained military pilots, nor do they have graduate degrees in astrophysics. Believe it or not – these three have been continuously trained in music since before they were five years of age. They developed a love for it, as encouraged and supported by their parents.
Other unique crew characteristics include: They are socially, politically and religiously conservative. They are very intelligent. They do not employ the previous practices of other rock musicians like drug and alcohol abuse, gaudy clothing, a sexualized public persona, or succumbing to the extremes of the metal/rock n roll universe exploration expeditions that came before them.
This flight crew and their supporting staff are family. They love one another. They are authentic, honest and transparent. They don’t cuss or burden their musical expressions with that cheap junk. They are NOT a tribute band. They write, arrange and perform their own original music. Their sound pierces the human soul. It is crisp, fresh, exquisitely on time, masterfully mixed, and consistently delivered with a joy and energy that is unique and frankly, defies explanation.
Yes, energy, gratitude, family and a love for music as a form of personal expression is the compound that binds this crew together…and fuels their passion to evolve as a team while continuing to establish expansive colonies of fans throughout the hard Rock n Roll universe.
Pau (21) plays drums, keyboards, sings and is the prime catalyst as the mission’s imagination engineer for their internationally acclaimed collaborative song writing. Her drum skills reveal a woman obsessed with plotting, pounding and pushing the boundaries for the possibilities of this mission.
Ale (19) plays bass, sings and is responsible for generating the essential vertebrae shattering propulsion her Spector bass discharges.
Dany (23) plays lead guitar and is the lead vocalist. Her soaring , piercing vocals, stage performance, and magnificent musical mastery of her lead guitar inflict unimaginable wounds – like a barrage of targeted, full auto sniper fire hitting you directly in the heart of the bullet proof vest you forgot to put on.
Mission Progress Update:
Prior to the December 8, 2023 launch event, the flight crew training and experiences have included the following:
They were selected for a collaboration with Alessia Cara for Metallica’s ‘The Metallica Blacklist’ album. These three were profiled in TIME Magazine April 2015. They delivered two presentations at TEDx conferences at the University of Nevada in 2016 and 2017
They opened for Guns & Roses – in their hometown of Monterrey, MX on Sunday October 23rd 2022. They have opened for or shared the stage with so many notable artists – they cannot be listed here: Think: MUSE, The Killers, Aerosmith, Stone Temple Pilots, Foo Fighters, Scorpions, Greta Van Fleet and dozens and dozens more.
The Warning earned Over 120 million YouTube views and 10 million streams with their debut single “CHOKE” on LAVA Records in 2021. They have a five album contract with Lava. In 2023 they were invited to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards where they performed their piece EVOLVE.
They played over 100 shows in 2022 and 2023 respectively in cities around the globe. .. attracting hundreds of thousands (likely millions when combined) of loyal followers on social media platforms.
Their independent releases include Escape the Mind EP , XXI Century Blood  and Queen of the Murder Scene  – garnering over 120 million YouTube views and 10 million streams. Their third album called “ERROR” was released in 2022. During 2023, they worked on producing new songs with David Bendeth – multi-platinum producer, mixer and songwriter. Working with Bendeth is an earned privilege in the music industry…David picks who he works with.
Current Mission Critical Morphology
The term morphology has its’ origins in Greek. Morph refers to ‘shape or form’ while –‘ology’ – typically means ‘the study of something.’ Thus, Mexico’s moon shot is truly a study of how the form and shape of this mission will unfold. There are plenty of unknowns and obstacles ahead in the metal/rock n roll/music universe. There is space junk floating everywhere in this universe – remnants of previous attempts to explore, expand and colonize enduring, and meaningful places in this space.
What are the odds these three women will accomplish what their predecessors have not? Their space vehicle and mission support is airtight. They are siblings whose lives are sustained by a love of music, family, trusted friends, top tier management, industry leading creative talent development and promotion partners, and a crew that is second to none.
My bet? The Warning – Mexico’s musical mission to the to the moon and beyond will be a ‘YASNY’…You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet…
Stay tuned…they may touch down at a venue near you in 2024.
