Ill Nino Debuts ‘All or Nothing’ Video; Summer Tour Dates Scheduled

Ill Nino debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band premiered the video for its new single, ‘All or Nothing’ Wednesday through Loudwire. The song, which tackles the topic of immigration, features a guest appearance by P.O.D. front man Sonny Sandoval and comes approximately five months after the band premiered the video for its then latest single, ‘Mascara,’ which also premiered through Loudwire.

Both songs are expected for inclusion in Ill Nino’s forthcoming album IllMortals, which is scheduled for release later this year through Break Silence Music. The album’s release date is under consideration.

Front man Marcos Leal address the lyrical theme of ‘All or Nothing’ and working with Sandoval in a prepared statement.

“‘All or Nothing’ was written as a challenge to myself. I knew the moment I joined Ill Nino, I would face negativity, scrutiny and possibly ridicule,” said Leal. “It caused me to question myself, and even question if I was good enough to embrace this opportunity. I challenged myself as I’m challenging all of you, what would you do if the opportunity of a lifetime was within your grasp? I chose to go ‘All or Nothing.’”

Added Leal, “I wanna thank one of my heroes, Sonny Sandoval of P.O.D. for lending his freshness to this track and being a constant inspiration.”

Sandoval, shared Leal’s positive thoughts as he talked about working with Ill Nino on the song and video.

“Like P.O.D., ILL NIÑO have always incorporated their culture, roots and heritage into their music and sound, which have set them apart in this metal scene for over two decades,” said Sandoval. “It was my honor and privilege to have contributed to this record. After knowing them for 20 years now, I don’t know why we didn’t do this sooner.”

The video for ‘All or Nothing’ features Ill Nino and Sandoval performing the band’s new single in what is meant to resemble an alleyway in an urban setting, what with the graffiti on the wall behind the band. That imagery pairs with visuals of an Hispanic woman praying, a factory, and information about the role of immigrants in America perhaps equating Leal’s comments about taking a major chance in life to what Immigrants do every day.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘All or Nothing’ takes listeners back to Ill Nino’s infancy, with its sharp guitars, driving vocals and heavy bass. It sounds like it would fit well in the band’s 2001 debut album, Revolution, Revolucion.

‘All or Nothing’ will be available to stream and download by itself beginning May 14.
