ILL NINO: Pro-Shot Footage From Russia Posted Online

August 31, 2009

Professionally filmed video footage of ILL NINO performing the song "If You Still Hate Me" in Ekaterinburg, Russia in March 2009 can be viewed below (note: the footage was shot for, and aired on, MTV Russia during the second leg of ILL NINO's "Enigma" world tour).

Commented the band: "Our European tour had just finished the night before. Our [next] show was to be in Ekaterinburg, Russia. Our flights were overnight with a layover in Moscow. Our schedule was tight to begin with and flight delays nearly cancelled the first Russian show. Nevertheless, we got there with just enough time to set up our gear and play.

"We really have to thank our road crew for pulling this one off — and also all of the crazy Russian fans for making this such a great experience.

"The audio is 100% raw and unmixed but, powerful indeed. Hope you dig it."

ILL NINO is once again seeking a new label home following the band's split with Cement Shoes Records, which released 2008's "Enigma". In an interview with Parce Musik, vocalist Cristian Machado stated, "We are changing labels yet once again . . . There is a couple of labels that we are looking at but we hopefully make a decision on the right one. Not like the decision we made on this last one. So if we learned anything from our decision-making process in the last couple of years... We'll see quickly enough. I don't wanna speak too soon or anything."

ILL NINO's fourth full-length album, "Enigma", sold 5,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 145 on The Billboard 200 chart.

The band parted ways with Roadrunner Records in 2006 — less than a year after the release of ILL NINO's third album, "One Nation Underground".

ILL NINO recently completed the "Project Independent" tour of South America.
