Havalina, nominated for Premio Ruido, announce their separation

Havalina, the Madrid rock band, active since 2001, has announced its separation. “After twenty years of experience and ten albums, we have decided to finish Havalina,” explains Manuel Cabezalí, Javier Couceiro and Jaime Olmedo in a statement. “We could enumerate a long, complex and probably contradictory list of reasons to justify this decision, but the fact is that the time has come to put an end to it.”

Havalina is one of the groups nominated in the next edition of the Ruido Awards, with their album ‘Maquinaria’, published last February.

Developing, over the course of a dozen albums, a sound influenced by the alternative rock of Smashing Pumpkins, Soda Stereo or The Cure, Havalina has signed such beloved works as ‘Las Hojas Secas’ (2010) or ‘Islas de Cement’ ( 2015). Vetusta Morla, Álex Ferreira, Boat Beam, Rufus T. Firefly and Maika Makovski are among the artists who have collaborated or performed with Madrid residents during their careers.

Havalina will say goodbye to its audience with a final round of concerts. The group will conclude the ‘Maquinaria’ tour on January 13 in Segovia and will then embark on an intimate concert tour that will take place between February and June. “They will be concerts in a simple format where we want to return to the roots of the band: the three of us on stage reviewing our discography and celebrating everything we have managed to achieve by being a band that decided to take the long and difficult road,” he explains. the group.
