Formed in 2013 by the Villarreal Vélez sisters: 

Daniela (guitar, vocals, piano),

Paulina (drums, vocals, piano), 

and Alejandra (bass guitar, backing vocals, piano). 

It is true that we cover mostly independent artists, but we do occasionally look at the big boys and girls with major labels. 

The Warning released their much awaited new album, “Keep Me Fed,” on June 28, through LAVA/Republic Records.  

We glanced at the cover here in the office, a wonderful cover celebrating Bacchanalian excess, and sent it straight over for review. It’s the kind of cover that grabs you. This is a band gracing the covers of the big rock magazines, they are there looking down from that mountain top already.

About the record, the band commented, “This new album is the result of our rawest emotions and most meaningful connections with people we’ve gotten to know and work with these past few years. We’re incredibly proud of this music and we can’t wait for you to make it yours. From our hearts to you, this is Keep Me Fed.”

In talking about the story behind the decision to name the album Keep Me Fed, “throughout the whole process, the work was consuming us,” says Pau. “By impacting everything we did, the album kept us fed both creatively and personally. We’re inviting other people to participate and consume it too.”

Thus far in 2024, The Warning performed at ShipRocked in the Caribbean, Mexico’s prestigious Pa’l Norte & Vive Latino Festivals, sold out their April EU/UK headline tour, just wrapped their first headlining tour of Japan that included a show with Band-Maid, and will return overseas to the EU/UK for summer festivals. Looking ahead to 2025, the band sold-out the 10,000-capacity Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City in less than 48 hours.

The Warning are as hungry as ever on Keep Me Fed, and they’re about to sink their teeth into 2024. 

And now, prepare to grab a hold of the rocket and reach the stars—let’s review “Keep Me Fed,” which runs for just over 38 minutes.

“Six Feet Deep” opens things up with this big drum sound and a slow, rhythmic rock sound that builds up into a massive chorus. “Six feet deep, I’ll be seeing you under!” I like it, lol. In among the riffs, there is a strong melody, “choke on my name”—you tell them!

“S!CK” wastes no time either to crunch the riffs and bring in a pounding drum sound. It’s a track from a band at the top of their game, full of energy and class. I like the vocals build up to the chorus; it holds the power of the piece. 

“Apologize” tells us ‘skin on skin means nothing.’ There is a throbbing rhythm with this one, plenty of energy and a sudden switch to this acoustic break. We then switch to this screamed demand to ‘apoligize.’ A massive vocal piece in an interlocking track.

“Qué Más Quieres” is a heavy rock song that refers to the hunger within and the lover who will always come back. 

“MORE” reminds me of a track that could be part of a Batman movie, perhaps. The drums from Paulina are damn good again and the mix has them turned up nicely. Again, the injection of the melody into this psychedelic metal sound works very well. The band has a distinctive feel and this track showcases what they do.

“Escapism” is a very commercial and slick sounding rock song. I feel rock radio should jump out and grab this one; it has a kind of insane Alice in Wonderland feel with a throbbing rhythm section that almost delivers a marching beat and a catchy chorus.


“Satisfied” brings in some of the best guitar work on the album; I think it would be a bit of a monster live and it is arena rock. Everything about it is overblown; it asks for loads of amps and a crowd.

“Burnout” is catchy, pop metal, with this banging chorus. Again, the delivery is full of energy and the message that ‘talk is cheap when no one is listening’ made me smile. As Neil Young once said, ‘it’s better to burnout than to fade away,’ and these girls are definitely not fading away.

“Sharks” again injects a form of psychedelic rock into the mix, being inventive and insistent. It was not a track I warmed to, possibly my least favourite on the album; but it was lyrically interesting and it continued to deliver pounding rock grooves.

“Hell You Call A Dream” soars in the wind. It picks up from “Sharks” and proceeds to kick you hard in the ass. I love how they work the chorus.

“Consume” sees the drums pounding and the lyrics moving with punk confidence. I’ll just say here that I am playing every track through to the end—no skipping, no fillers here. 

“Automatic Sun” closes the album with all the swagger that the album encapsulates. This one, live, would kill! 

In summary, it shows how much I liked this that I went straight to Amazon and ordered a vinyl copy of it. If I had access to stars in this magazine, it would have the full package! It’s a bad bitch of an album, full of angst, big drums, acidic vocals and oozes confidence. The best rock album of 2024 so far.
