ILL NINO is once again seeking a new label home following the band's split with Cement Shoes Records, which released 2008's "Enigma". In a recent interview with Parce Musik, vocalist Cristian Machado stated, "We are changing labels yet once again . . . There is a couple of labels that we are looking at but we hopefully make a decision on the right one. Not like the decision we made on this last one. So if we learned anything from our decision-making process in the last couple of years... We'll see quickly enough. I don't wanna speak too soon or anything."
ILL NINO's fourth full-length album, "Enigma", sold 5,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 145 on The Billboard 200 chart.
The band parted ways with Roadrunner Records in 2006 — less than a year after the release of ILL NINO's third album, "One Nation Underground".
