In the summer of 2019 ESKOBAR played 2 great shows in Sweden at the Peace & Love Festival and at Kackelstugan.
When fall came they decided to create the upcoming album “Chapter 2” which is being written and produced at this moment and is planned to have it’s release in June of 2020.
The sound and feel of “Chapter 2” is a definitive love letter to the bands of the 90’s UK indie/britpop scene where Eskobar finds it’s roots mixed with modern production and Eskobar’s unique northern take.
Eskobar calls the genre on the upcoming album “Northie” which is short for “Northern Indie”.
“Chapter 2” is anticipated to be an epic milestone.
