Zebras The City of Sun

"The City Of Sun"
Secret Records
Digital Released: July 14, 2015
Vinyl Released: September 25, 2015

Vincent Presley (guitars/vocals), Shane Hochstetler (drums) and Lacey Smith (analog synths) make up the Wisconsin based Zebras. 

"The City Of Sun" is an intense experience. Fueled by a variety of influences, including punk, hardcore, metal and other genres may make it difficult to classify, but the overall intensity and creativity makes it easy to enjoy. The great riffing, rhythm and vocal shredding on "The City of Sun" makes for a hell of a rip roaring time. Give it a listen on Zebras bandcamp page and don't forget to pre-order the vinyl!

The Ten songs blow by in 31 minutes of fury. Surprisingly great record from some fresh blood (since pairing with Shane Hochstetler, Zebras has shelved all prior material - originated in 2007-  had a complete gear overhaul, and considers themselves an entirely new outfit).

Zebras and Child Bite are my two favorite finds so far in August 2015!
