Estado de Sitio (EdS), founded by Marcel Caillaux and Joaquin Cuneo, is a Peruvian rock band that begins its career by recording their first EP, Caigo contigo (2002). After years of constantly playing and writing new original songs, with new drummer Manolo Ruiz, EdS produces their second EP: Que suenen las alarmas (2005).
After touring Peru EdS records their first LP: En el fondo (2009). The video for hit single, A veces, enters the MTVla Top 10 Ranking. In 2010, EdS was invited to perform in the Surf & Music Festival along with Mexican bands, Division Minuscula and Allison, promoting their international career and upon returning to Lima, EdS performs in the main Peruvian music festivals.
In 2012, EdS records their next album: Cualquierlugar.
In 2016, EdS breaks with all the formulas that have led to their success and launches to explore new horizons with its latest delivery: Directo al sol. Lyrics sung with folk melodies, post-punk elements and a wide range of pop nuances that 13 years of trajectory allow to explore. Caillaux and Cuneo are now joined by new drummer Alonso Barclay with a sound that has less distortion yet it is more powerful.
