ZEKE Touring North American This Summer In Support of Weedeater

Seattle’s long-running supercharged punk outfit ZEKE embark on their North American tour supporting Weedeater early next week, supporting their recently-released “Hellbender” LP, their first new album in over fourteen years.

The tour begins this Monday, June 25th in Cincinnati, Ohio, and runs through July 29th, ending in Asheville, North Carolina. Additional support will be provided by Sierra, and Unsane will also join the bill on the three Texas shows, July 19th, 20th, and 21st.

Short, fast, loud, and to the fuckin’ point, “Hellbender” contains fifteen tracks laced with ZEKE‘s signature mix of hyperspeed thrash-punk and Motörhead possessed, hard as nails, rock n’ roll. Complete with raucous, in-your-face production by Jack Endino (Nirvana, High On Fire, The Accüsed), and finished with cover art by Hollis Tucker and Lee Goode, Hellbender is the culmination of a band twenty-five years into their career, sounding more aggressive, immediate and turbo-charged than ever before! Ride to live…

ZEKE’s “Hellbender” is available now on CD, LP, and digital via Relapse Records.

ALLEGAEON released their “Proponent For Sentience” full-length via Metal Blade in 2016. Produced by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Cattle Decapitation), the album is a musically complex, intelligent, and absorbing concept record that can rightfully sit alongside the true greats of the medium. With a lyrical arc rooted in science-fiction yet uncomfortably encroaching upon the reality of the present, it captures the Fort Collins, Colorado natives at their most ambitious and accomplished, pushing the boundaries even further than on their three previous critically acclaimed full-lengths.

The band is currently working on album number five, again produced by Otero with details to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
