As a music fan, there are few things better than when members of great bands get together and create a new great band. New alt rock band Bosnian Rainbows (comprised of Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Deantoni Parks from Grammy-winning The Mars Volta, Teri Gender Bender from Le Butcherettes and Nicci Kasper who’s worked with Kudu and KRS-One) have joined forces to create said type of band and will release their self-titled debut on June 25. Combining left-field creativity and performance art sensibilities, this group has melded to form its own attention-grabbing entity.
I connected with Omar Rodriguez-Lopez recently to discuss his early musical start, growing up in a Puerto Rican household in El Paso, Texas, his films, the new Bosnian Rainbows album, what we’d be surprised to know about him and more. Check out the videos and interview soundclips below! Get more info on the album release and where they’ll be on tour this summer by visiting their band page on Facebook !
