Zombies Alive

-

The Zombies are back! As of this fall, the veteran psychodelic-pop British rockers will release a brand new album and have announced a US tour to coincide with the release. The new album titled Still Got that Hunger will hit stores on October 9.

Did you know that The Zombies were the first band after The Beatles to reach a #1 in the U.S. way back in the 1960s?

The man in charge of producing the new album is music veteran, Chris Potter. Chris, whose previous work includes The Rolling Stones Steel Wheels and The Verve Urban Hymns has been there, seen it, done it too.[pullquote  type=right][counter num_start=”0″ num_end=”100″ num_suffix=”%” num_speed=”2500″ num_color=”#9b59b6″ text_above=”Alive and Kicking”][/pullquote]

On a side note, The Zombies took a non-conventional route with regards to funding for the album. They did this with a successful crowdsourcing campaign via the PledgeMusic website. Still Got that Hunger will be released by The End Records/ADA.

In a statement from the band’s keyboardist, Rod Argent said, “We’re really excited to be signing our new album to The End Records— it somehow seems fitting that it should be released on a Brooklyn based label, as our very first American concerts way back in 1964 took place at The Brooklyn Fox Theatre!”

The upcoming tour will include a full performance of the band’s influential 1968 record Odessey and Oracle, and will also feature the group’s original rhythm section, bassist Chris White and drummer Hugh Grundy, who will be appearing as special guests alongside the band’s current lineup.  The tour will work it’s way across most of the United States and kicks off September 30th.  Tickets for all the concerts are on sale now.
