We are thrilled to welcome back Portland's beloved Federale, the Spaghetti Western influenced ensemble, with support from local singer-songwriter Edna Vazquez. 

Federale
Federale
Federale has always operated under the guidance of a larger story arc. 2007’s La Rayar is a classic tale of betrayal and vengeance. 2009’s Devil In A Boot centers on a small town terrorized by a railroad company baron’s expansion and destruction. 2012’s The Blood Flowed Like Wine tells the supernatural tale of an evil so powerful that not even hell can hold back its wrath.

All The Colours Of The Dark continues this tradition while breaking new musical terrain. Though the new record includes cinematic instrumentals and that the band is known for, it also sees Federale expanding their vision to narrative songs in the baritone-driven style of heroes Lee Hazlewood, Scott Walker and Nick Cave. Murder, revenge, regret, power and corruption are the lyrical themes of this collection. This album will be the band’s first on Death Waltz Records. A limited number of colored vinyl is available now in advance of the upcoming wide release.

In 2014, Federale contributed five songs to Ana Lily Amirpour’s acclaimed gothic vampire film noir, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, setting the mood of both the film and the soundtrack. Lily’s new film, The Bad Batch, will feature the title track from the new album.

Federale is a seven-piece ensemble based in Portland, OR. Spearheaded by longtime Brian Jonestown Massacre bassist Collin Hegna, the band was conceived as an outlet to channel inspiration from ‘60s & ‘70s European soundtracks, particularly those from Italy made famous by the Spaghetti Western & Giallo genres.
Edna Vazquez
Edna Vazquez is fearless singer, songwriter and guitarist whose powerful voice and musical talent embrujan and transcend the boundaries of language to engage and uplift her audience. She is a creative crisol with a vocal range that allows her to paint seamlessly with her original material, an intersection of folk, rock, pop and R&B. Edna’s passion for music and performance grew from her bicultural raices and, with songs deeply rooted in universal human emotion, she has traveled far and wide spreading her message of light, love and cultural healing.
Edna is currently performing with her band in support of her most recent release, Sola Soy, and writing new music for an album to be released in 2018. The Edna Vazquez Band features William Seiji Marsh on lead guitar (Lost Lander, Cherry Poppin Daddies), Gil Assayas on keys (GLASYS), Milo Fultz on electric and upright bass (3 Leg Torso) and Jesse Brooke on drums and percussion (Trio Subtonic).
