Gossos ("Dogs" in Catalan) is a Spanish rock group from Manresa, Barcelona. Until 2002, their music stood out for being completely acoustic, with only guitars and bass. They later added drummer Santi Serratosa and began to electrify their sound.
In the summer of 1993, Oriol Farré, Juanjo Muñoz, Natxo Tarrés and Roger Farré, all from Manresa decided to form a group to compose and write songs. After a few concerts, they entered two contests, and in the second they won the prize of having their first album produced. Their self-titled first album was released in 1994. Their acoustic style made them stand out from other Catalan rock groups of the era and they played an increasing number of concerts around Catalonia while preparing their second disc, "En privat", released in 1996.
In 1997 they released their third album, "Metamorfosi". The album cover does not include the title but rather an image of the four band members forming a Mandala. Their fourth album was the live disc "Directament" (1999), recorded at the Teatre Conservatori in their hometown of Manresa with guest appearances by Cris Juanico (Ja t'ho diré), Gerard Quintana (Sopa de Cabra) and Pemy Fortuny (Lax'n'Busto). In 2000 they decided to make an album in Spanish, "De viaje", recorded in Madrid. The group then returned to recording in Catalan with their sixth release, "Cares" (2001).
In 2002 the group left behind the acoustic sound that had characterized their music and decided to incorporate electric guitars and a drummer. Their seventh album, "El jardí del temps" (2003), featured the group's new sound. They followed it with "8" (2005) and "Oxigen" (2007). The latter album included the group's best-known song, "Corren", which features Dani Macaco.
In 2008, Gossos celebrated their 15th anniversary with a concert in Barcelona and also played in the Netherlands and Germany. With the singer Berta, they wrote and recorded music for the TV3 show Ventdelplà.
Gossos' tenth album, "Dia 1", was released in 2010. In the fall of 2011, the group announced they would be taking a break from touring in 2012, with the intention of presenting a new album in 2013.Natxo Tarrés - vocals and guitar
