With 15 years of experience and a clenched fist, El Caco’s (Spanish: thief) latest album simply titled ’7’ will hit the streets. The band, which has remained a trio since their beginning in 1998, has released almost a full shelf of records, with exponentially more successful results each time. They’ve got well over 70 songs on their repertoire, but restless as they are, another full album comes along.
"7" is set for release on January 15th!
El Caco’s last release ’Hatred, Love & Diagrams’ scored great reviews from critics both outside and inside Norway. A very frequent comment regards the band’s capability to stir up some old rock tricks to a new delicious soup of fresh and modern expressions, which we definitely can experience in their new album.

About ’7’ the group can confidently share that ’this is a record that will take you through an eclectic landscape and draw out a hunger in you never felt before’ - a statement that matches the albums constating and crisp aesthetics.
First single "Ambivalent" will be available on all streaming services on November 25th.
On this album, El Caco has whipped a creamy cream of both rock & roll, grunge, and stoner rock in a manner worthy of the El Caco’s only. As the band name states, they consistently steal from a good mix of the rock’s essential elements and molds them together to a conglomerate of hyper-sleazy riffs, cowbells (shovels actually), distorted bass and a voice with an outstanding animus.
