The Warning unveils ‘Choke’

Official video available now

After amassing 65 million-plus views and over 10 million streams independently, the Monterrey Mexico hard rock trio of sisters The Warning unleash a new single entitled “Choke” via LAVA/Republic Records. The track was produced by legendary rock producer David Bendeth (Paramore, Bring Me The Horizon, Breaking Benjamin).

“Choke is a song about drowning in your feelings and coming to terms with them. Recording it with David Bendeth (while in quarantine!) was an incredible experience and he really worked with us to bring the song to life,” the band share.

The music video was directed by Gabo Ramos and concept was worked on in tándem meticulously the band. Surrounded by experts in every field from wardrobe, hair, makeup, art design, lighting design and underwater crew the video was shot in one day.

The track illuminates the intense chemistry between these three sisters Daniela “Dany” [guitar, lead vocals, piano], Paulina “Pau” [drums, vocals, piano], and Alejandra “Ale” Villarreal [bass, piano, backing vocals]. Dany’s hypnotic vocals bleed into thunderous distortion as the groove tosses and turns on a dime. Their pummeling proficiency drives the track towards a massive and magnetic hook meant to be chanted in arenas worldwide.

At 8:30 pm EST/5:30 pm PST today (Fri, May 21st), the band will be celebrating the new release with a virtual in-store event hosted by Rolling Live Studios. For the event, the band will be interviewed by the legendary Matt Pinfield virtually from Mexico. Fans can watch live at

The Warning infuse rock music with a much-needed shot of adrenaline. The Monterrey, Mexico trio of sisters charge forward with head-spinning riffs, unpredictable rhythms, stadium-size beats, and skyscraping vocals. They stand out as the rare presence equally at home on network television and on stage at Heaven & Hell Festival. If anybody can usher rock’s comeback along, it’s these three ladies. After exploding online with one viral moment after another, The Warning parlayed this momentum into a series of independent releases, including Escape the Mind EP in 2015, XXI Century Blood in 2017, and Queen of the Murder Scene in 2019. They graced a stacked bill at Mother of All Rock Festival as the only Mexican band and opened up two sold out Monterrey shows for The Killers and for Def Leppard in Mexico City and Guadalajara. After quietly amassing over 120 million YouTube views and 10 million streams, they surge to the forefront of hard rock on their LAVA Records single debut, “Choke.”
