The Under Cover Sessions is the name of Ill Niño's 5 track EP which was released on November 7, 2006 via Cement Shoes Records. It is their first release on the label, after departing Roadrunner Records in June 2006. This EP was the first to feature Diego Verduzco on guitar (originally in Odum), as a stand-in for Jardel Paisante, who hadn't been a part of the group since the spring of 2006. He was said to be dealing with personal family problems. According to guitarist Ahrue Luster, Verduzco is a great guitar player: "He's a very dedicated musician and a huge fan of Ill Niño". Verduzco was also on the photo shoots of Ill Niño for the EP, so many fans saw him as a full-time replacement for Jardel Paisante. Only 20,000 copies of the EP were released. It sold 1,300 copies during its first week of release.
