Distracción Masiva is a post-hardcore/pop punk band from Buenos Aires, Argentina. It means “Mass Distraction” in Spanish.
They’re currently formed as a rock quartet, with Santiago Vilar (vocals/bass), Ulises Uno (lead guitar/vocals), Gabriel Carrizo (rythm guitar) and Julián Yori (drums). They started playing in 2003 as a trio, until Gabriel joined the band in 2005.
The band has been influenced by many artists in recent years, which made their music more sophisticated and fresh, yet more consistent and solid. They find inspiration not only in other musicians’s work, but also in other artistic expressions, cinema and philosophy.
Distracción Masiva released its first album, El Día del Diluvio, in April 2007.
