The group first came to prominence when they opened for Joaquín Sabina at a show at Mexico City's National Auditorium. After several tours of the Americas, opening for Shakira and Maná, their lead singer Reyli left to pursue a solo career in 2003.[1] As a replacement they recruited Jorge Martínez Guevara, former lead singer of the group Caos, who performed on their 2005 album Elefante. He left the group in 2007,[2] and songwriter/guitarist Rafael "Rafa" López and Javi Cantero assumed vocal duties on subsequent releases.
