Costa Rican Rockers HONGO FUU have signed with Sliptrick Records. The group is set to release their debut album, Fuu, in 2021.
Back in 2011, Hongo Fuu started as a project from deep within the concrete ruins of the Tropical-Hell of San José in Costa Rica, manifesting in the corporeal vessel of Félix Arburola. After releasing two EPs (Marshmallow Sleep in 2012 and The Healing Ritual in 2013), a single for “a movie that never happened” and various band member changes, the band finally became a solid entity in 2015.
Hongo Fuu now features Félix with Héctor Romero on guitars and vocals, and Ariel Uzaga on drums, two wraiths that incarnated synchronously in the Fungus vessel. Bass player Guillermo Meneses comes from the iconic Costa Rican Thrash Metal band Arsenal and completes the line-up.
