Fortitude unlocks success. It’s the ability to roll with the punches in the face of all opposition and emerge triumphantly.
It’s also honed by years of quiet dedication, devotion, and diligence. This mental, physical, emotional, and musical wherewithal fuels Sons of Texas on their aptly titled second full-length album, Forged By Fortitude [Razor & Tie]. Proud disciples of Pantera, Alice In Chains, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and even Vicente Fernández, the McAllen, TX quintet—Mark Morales [vocals], Mike Villareal [drums], Nick Villarreal [bass], Jon Olivarez [guitar], and Jes De Hoyos [guitar]—rise up from the Rio Grande valley with a rollicking hard rock sound steeped in metallic intricacy, grunge soul, southern-fried blues, and just the right amount of Tejano spirit.
“We’ve put everything we can into Sons of Texas,” exclaims Jes. “There’s more to it than the awesome forty-five minutes we’re on stage. Over the past few years, we’ve gone through good times, but also some real rough spots. Those moments show you who you are. If you’re able to come out of the tough times on top and not let them get you down, that’s a big thing. Our experiences inspired the title.”
