The Supuestos is driven by two universal powers: rock ‘n’ roll and love.
Earlier this year we had the pleasure of speaking with musician Kenio Chavero of the somewhat newly formed Mexican rock band THE SUPUESTOS. They will soon be releasing a new album that gives prominence to their explosive rock and punk sounds which, ironically, are in contrast to their love-ridden messages that tend to tug at one’s heartstrings. In addition to that killer combination, the band introduced an animated universe through their videos to help tell their stories.
Today they’re debuting the new video for, “Apuesta En Mi,” and Kenio says, “”When I wrote that song I was in a relationship in which my ex-partner didn’t want to take things to the next level and have a more formal and serious relationship, and I think that was manifested in the lyrics of the song in the phrase ‘Apuesta en mi,’ / ‘Bet on me’ in which I was looking for her to bet on me to make a family.” We are thrilled to premiere the new animated video, directed by Sergio Jaso.
The Supuestos, who are based in Chihuahua, are formed by Kenio, Yorsh and Shinobi and the project emerged during the pandemic. (You may recognize members of Mexican punk band Seis Pistos.) Once they began writing and recording, they decided their music videos would feature illustrations, an imagined The Supuestos universe, and invited artist Manuel Fermont and Sergio Jaso to imagine them in animated form. Each of the videos and songs represents a chapter of their new album.
This is The Supuestos and their new song and video for, “Apuesta En Mi.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
MEXICAN ROCK & POP-PUNK BAND THE SUPUESTOS CONTINUE FUSING ANIMATION, MUSIC & REALITY WITH THE RELEASE OF THEIR SECOND SINGLE & VIDEO
“APUESTA EN MI”
Mexican rock and pop-punk trio THE SUPUESTOS are excited to present their second single and animated video, “Apuesta En Mi”.
Featuring energetic guitar riffs and heart-pounding drum lines, the song takes listeners on a musical roller coaster ride while the video immerses viewers deeper into the vibrant, animated world of The Supuestos, with the band being trapped by the same group of aliens that captured the woman in their first video. It also depicts a fight against a succubus-like demon inside a casino and other out of this world imagery. The single’s lyrics explore the themes of love and relationships, emphasizing how we occasionally need to take chances.
Chihuahua based The Supuestos was born during the COVID-19 pandemic and includes members of the Mexican punk band SEIS PISTOS. With no venues to perform live, Kenio, Yorsh and el Shinobi found refuge by rehearsing and recording, giving birth to The Supuestos. The new band is driven by two universal powers: rock ‘n’ roll and love. These two pillars serve as both emotional and artistic sustenance for the members as they continue developing their sound.
Their first single, “No Me Digas Adiós”, is a fast-paced, headbanging song that reflect upon the difficulty of ending a relationship and is accompanied by a colorful animated video by the illustrator Manuel Fermont and Sergio Jaso featuring aliens, milkshakes, skateboards and a rekindled romance. Tight guitar lines and drum rhythms sustain the drive from start to end.
“No Me Digas Adiós” – Music Video
Music, animation & virtual reality are equally important for The Supuestos. The band’s goal is to immerse listeners and viewers in a cartoon-like world with a wild and fun soundtrack. Each of their videos are chapters of a longer story.
