Veteran rock band Puya is back in the news.
The band unveiled its latest single, ‘Potencial‘ Thursday along with its companion video. The song features the band’s entire original lineup along with percussionist Oscar Santiago (ex-Ill Nino).
The band’s familiar Afro-Latin-tinged sound is just as evident as ever here. It is accompanied by an interesting blend of thrash and guitar rock influence. No information was provided about the lyrical theme featured in the new song, though the song’s video might shed some hint at the song’s theme.
The song’s video features a young man dreaming of becoming a rock star. He is sitting in his room watching Puya on his TV while what are assumed to be his parents argue right outside his room on their home’s balcony. As they fight, the young man makes his way up a mountain to its top. He ends up “performing with” the band, when his parents see him on the same TV. Their differences are soon forgotten. This all hints at a message of working to achieve one’s own potential no matter what.
In other news, Puya is scheduled to perform live with Dead By Wednesday on a trio of dates in June. Those dates are noted below.

Dead By Wednesday drummer drummer Christian F. Lawrence (a.k.a. Opus) spoke highly of Puya as he talked about the bands sharing the stage this summer.
“I grew up listening to these guys since they were on Atlantic Records and playing Ozzfest so not only is it an honor to be opening up for them on their debut return in the states with my band DBW, but I’m happy to also say that I’ll be working with them on many different levels as well in the future,” he said. “Great bunch of guys and a very talented band!!!!!!!! We will be working on taking over the world once again with their unique style & original sound!” adds Opus, DBW & ELLEFSON drummer.
