BAND!

The year was 1997 and LATTE+ broke onto the scene with their first demo, Dustbin in Town, six songs that would set the stage for the next twenty years of straight up, in your face punk rock. Over the years, the line up would change and the band would be forced to take time off but the music always remained. After Dustbin in Town”, the band continued to write in English and would eventually release their self-produced album, The New Generation Sucks in 1999. LATTE+ would begin to get the interest of independent labels and all copies of The New Generation Sucks quickly sold out. This exposure allowed the band to tour and play 50 shows within the next year. 2001 found the band in the studio recording their first label supported release, Guerriglia Urbana”. Being their first release in Italian, this album would sell over 3000 copies and bring the band to the world stage performing in front of 4000 fans. Their position as an influential, leading group in the Italian independent music scene was now cemented. The 2005 release of Molotov further proved that LATTE+ was a punk rock force to be reckoned with. Their schedule soon filled up with split records, tribute albums, and radio and television promotions. A few years later, the guys would find themselves in a transition period culminating in 2009’s "Non E’ Finita", released through Florentine label Controtempo Produzioni. While touring to promote Non E’ Finita”, the band continued to write and eventually produce Asociale”, their 5th album (and arguably best to date), which was released in 2012. 17 years after they first emerged from the small Italian city of Empoli, LATTE+ would reach worldwide recognition in 2014 with No More Than Three Chords”, a masterpiece of Ramones influenced songs perfected with that 1-2-3-4 punch of tight, fast paced punk rock ethos. Released through Italy’s Rocketman Records and eventually in the US on Outloud! Records, No More Than Three Chords would be played by fans in Italy, France, Germany, Japan, the US, Argentina and the world throughout. In 2016, in celebration of 20 years of dedication, the band released Punk Rock 20”, a compilation of 20 of the best and even worst songs of their career. On February 23rd 2017 it's been released their 7th long awaited album “Stitches”. The album is preceded by the singles "Screw You" and "Darkness Inside Your Heart" (official videoclips on YouTube), and it is produced by Professional Punkers in collaboration with Monster Zero for Europe and Outloud! Records for the US. With its 13 tracks of pure punk rock Ramones style, "Stitches" aims to confirm and pass the excellent response achieved by his predecessor "No More Than Three Chords".
