The new CD was recorded at Mirage studio in Chicago.
 
Meanwhile the group is preparing for a tour of Japan and Australia. Patrula 81 was formed in Durango, Mexico in 1981.
 
The group got their singature sound from using a melodeon, a small breath-controlled keyboard instrument.
 
Early on, group founder Medina teamed up with Ismael Dominguez, programmer for the popular Radio Canon who helped push the band's first hit, "Tu Mirada" into national awareness.
 
The band recorded their debut CD "No Aprendi a Olvidar," and followed that with their breakthrough smash in 2004 with the popular documentary film "Le Verdadera Historia de la Musica Duranguense."
