NYC's Outernational celebrates May Day with a show at Mercury + announces European tour

A busy year of touring has taken NYC based “future rock” quintet Outernational through Europe, South America, and most recently SXSW and Mexico for the Vive Latino Festival. Before their Mexican debut, Outernational impressed at SXSW in Austin, TX, garnering attention with their Latin-infused heavy hitting rock ‘n roll, interspersed with Spanish lyrics amongst trumpet fanfare, shredding guitar solos, and fiery revolutionary lyrics. Back in their home territory, the five-piece celebrates the most radical of holidays, May Day (May 1) at Mercury Lounge - presented by TJO Presents, Rocker Stalker, and Rockass Producciones. This is the only New York show before this band without borders heads to Europe again this summer. Check out Outernational in all their “Spanglish” glory in “Todos Somos Illegales,” (streaming, we discourage the view to those affiliated with the Tea Party) and don’t miss their show at Mercury - they have a powerful presence on stage! The band just announced that it will spend most of June touring Europe.
