Their latest release Hermanos Hasta El Fin is garnering interest even before its release. Their debut single "Que Me Has Hecho Tu" is getting strong response from California to Florida, and a video is currently being distributed nationally. Strong oldie favorites like "Tocando Puertas" and "Que Culpa Tengo" have added an extra punch to the excellent writing talents of brother Jaime Farias on this recording. Randy Van Warmer's "Just when I Needed You Most" is given a special treatment. In addition, the creative and artistic chanllenges that La Tropa F have undertaken on originals like "Lagrimas", "Asi", "Concha Del Mar", "Quiero Yo Saber", and "En Tus Brazos" (this is a treat) will make Hermanos Hasta El Fin the strongest and best recording they have ever put on the market.
