Combining Rock en Español with 70s-style-proto-punk, garage and new wave, Estos Gritos formed in the crucible of the 2020 New York City COVID-19 shutdown. Venezuelan natives José Miguel López and Alvaro Benavides enlisted multi-instrumentalist/producer Chris Stromquist and drummer Stephen Moses to help them craft an album of punk-style songs based on Lopez's poetry. They are based in New York City.
