New US Tour Dates And Album Release Announced Following Succesful Invasion of SXSWDate posted: Monday, April 29th, 2013 by Admin
NEW US TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED FOR JUNE & JULY 2013 INCLUDING NEW YORK CITY’S CENTRAL PARK SUMMERSTAGE & MILWAUKEE SUMMERFEST + ‘Breathe Out, Breathe In’ Gets Official U.S. Release via Redeye Distribution. all this FOLLOWS SUCCESSFUL INVASION OF SXSW
“The Zombies are a relevant band from the classic rock era and time hasn’t dulled their musical allure. There are at least 500 bands here that would kill for their career.” – Glide Magazine
“The Zombies sounded good, period. Blunstone can still pull off a wail…and Argent remains a virtuoso organist. They were also pretty adorable on stage, giving thumbs up to the audience after every song and seeming genuinely touched by such an enthusiastic response roughly 50 years after their formation. Justin Timberlake can only hope for the same when he performs at SXSW 2053.” – AV Club
The Zombies, one of the first and most influential of the first wave of bands to hit the U.S. during the British Invasion of the 1960’s, have just announced new tour dates for June and July 2013. The summer dates follow a highly successful tour earlier this year, which opened in Montreal where The Montreal Gazette raved “The Zombies concert anointed event of the year.” The tour also included six SRO performances during the South By Southwest music conference, considered one of the most important events for industry professionals, media representatives and music fans. The Zombies, led by founding members Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent, made their SXSW debut in March, headlining the Yahoo! powered Austin Psych Fest and a special acoustic Daytrotter session, scheduled to air on May 6, 2013, among other performances, as well as a panel interview with NPR’s Bob Boilen. Their performances were called “jaw droppingly good,” “blissful,” and raved Blunstone and Argent “impressed with immaculate vocal harmonies.” The Zombies will also be back in the late summer/early autumn for a series of west coast dates (details TBA).
The tour kicks off at The Bergen Performing Arts Center on June 13th and includes performances at NYC’s prestigious SummerStage on June 15th as well as the popular Milwaukee Summerfest on June 29th. This year, NYC’s SummerStage is launching “Forewords,” a panel discussion series before select SummerStage programs co-curated with The Strand Bookstore. On June 15th The Zombies will be one of the series’ first guests during the program, “The British Invasion,” where Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent will join filmmaker, Jonathan Demme. The event’s moderator will be announced shortly. Et Tu Bruce’, who opened for The Zombies at Austin Psych Fest during SXSW, will join the band on several dates this summer (see below). Described as “West London meets West Coast,” Et Tu Bruce’ blends pop, rock, folk and country and tie them all together with their signature harmonic sound. The New York Daily News‘ Jim Farber selected the band’s debut album, Suburban Sunshine, as one of his Top 10 CDs of the week recently and said the band “so lovingly recalls the densely melodic strains of the Byrds, even Roger Mcguinn would be awed.” Suburban Sunshine will be released on June 11 by SonaBLAST! records.
The Zombies also announce the U.S. & Canadian release of their most recent album of new material, Breathe Out, Breathe In, via Redeye Distribution on June 11, 2013. The Huffington Post’s David Wild called the album “inspired” and said “some songs recall the haunting melodic heights of the group’s 1968 masterpiece Odessey and Oracle.”
