New live video – The High Life

Craig Harrison was kind enough to record our set at Radio in Somerville, MA on April 26 and to send us a copy of the video. Over the next few months we will be uploading the whole set one video per week. The first upload is “The High Life” from our first EP Thunder In A Forgotten Town. It’s hard to believe that this song is seven years old. In fact it is the first song that we wrote together as Cortez. Enjoy.

“Cortez closed out the night by just unleashing a set of heavy fucking rock in the vein of Unida. That’s really the best comparison I can even possibly make, honestly. It’s on that level. If people don’t want to acknowledge it, it’s their loss. These tunes are rock solid, and the band delivering them is top notch. Heavy melodic riff rock at its absolute finest. Listen or be a dolt, it’s up to you. Yeah, heavy rock is fine. Nothing to fucking worry about here.” – Darryl Sheppard
