INTOCABLE is one of the most influential groups in the Tejano/Norteño music scene today. Their road to success began eighteen years ago (nineteen in August) in Zapata, Texas, when friends Ricky Muñoz and René Martínez dreamed of bringing their songs to the world as they crafted a unique and extraordinary style of music which expertly fuses Tejano conjunto music, Norteño folk rhythms, pop ballads and rock.
After years of dedication and passion, the dream is an indisputable reality. With #1 hits such as “Rabarte un Beso”, “Prometí”, their latest “Te Amo (Para Siempre)” as well as fan favorites like “Dame Un Besito,” “Eres Mi Droga,” Enséñame a Olvidarte,” “Sueña,” “Contra Viento y Marea,” “Llueve,” “Arrepiéntete,” among others, INTOCABLE continues to entertain and delight audiences in both the United States and Mexico. Their songs are heard in radio stations throughout the American Continent and the band has played live in world-renowned venues such as the Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City, the Monterrey Arena in Mexico, and the Reliant Astrodome Stadium in Houston, with a historic record of more than 70,000 fans singing along and enjoying one of the best shows in the industry. And to top off an already exceptional career, INTOCABLE made history by being the first and so far only act of their genre to sing the halftime show at the Cowboys vs. Redskins game at the famed Dallas Cowboy Stadium.
Today, the group INTOCABLE is the standard bearer of “la música norteña.” Its achievements have been recognized with two GRAMMY Awards (in 2005 for their album Intimamente and in 2011 for the album Classic), seven Latin GRAMMY and multiple nominations, thirteen Premios Lo Nuestro, numerous Latin Billboards and two Billboard Regional Mexican Awards, as well as many other nominations, including one from the American Music Awards. Not only these but in 2010 Billboard Magazine named them “Group of the Decade”, and were honored by Billboard with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.
Always striving towards creating music that is relevant and transcends the boundaries of genre, national borders and even languages, INTOCABLE returned to the studio to produce their 15th career album. En Peligro de Extinción brings together all the best of INTOCABLE: the stirring lyrics, the captivating melodies and rhythms, the expert arrangements and the excellence and precision of a group of musicians at the top of their art form.
Although the band produced INTOCABLE 2011 under their own label, Good I Music, this time they decided to join forces with Universal Music Group for En Peligro de Extinción in their aim to expand their reach to the Central American and South American markets, since Universal has the distribution infrastructure required for this goal. In this album, INTOCABLE lends its characteristically rhythmic voice to the words of renowned songwriters Ikerlan (group’s head writer), José Zamora, Josué Contreras and Miguel Mendoza, with whom they’ve co-written in past albums. Ikerlan wrote their single “Te Amo Para Siempre” which debuted at #1 in the Billboard charts and maintain the position for 3 weeks. The song continues to be a US top-charting mainstay and it also reached #1 in Mexican radio. The success of the song recently earned Ricky Muñoz the 2013 SESAC Latina “#1’s” award.
The new album also includes “Nos Falto Hablar”, a rock infused jewel also written by Ikerlan that will be the second single and “Culpable Fui (Culpable Soy)”, a power ballad reminiscent of 1980s rock power ballads, that was written by the famous Mexican singer-songwriter, Reyli Barba.
Year after year, INTOCABLE demonstrates their passion for music and their desire to share their creations with a loyal public that keeps growing with every word and every note.
