unnamed (15)Los Angeles based bone-head savants Zig Zags are no-nonsense 80’s style thrash with a magpie eye for deep-fried pop culture detritus. Following their blistering new album Running Out of Red on Castle Face Records, the band has announced Summer tour dates hitting Los Angeles, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, and other major cities along the way. The band kicks off the tour with several dates in Los Angeles, most notably playing ITR’s 25th Anniversary w/ Ty Segall, Gories, and The Oblivions at The Echoplex on 7/14.

Jed Maheu (guitar/vocals), Caleb Miller (bass/vocals), and Dane Arnold (drums) give so few fucks while they are out ripping faces that it’s tough to say much about them that hasn’t been said before – they shred so that we may raise beers in non-ironic salute to their Voivod worship, to a world in which young heshers subscribe to Heavy Metal and practice early Slayer solos while watching daytime TV, to wake and baking as you watch the world burn. The new album was recorded with Chris Woodhouse (Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, Wand) at The Dock in Sacramento CA.
