8 years, 7 singles, 3 albums, 3 bass players, 2 drummers and God knows how many shows later - Zig Zags has continually evolved, mutated, transitioned and transformed, rising again and again, like a phoenix emerging from the flame. The addition of the newest member of our triumvirate - multi-instrumentalist, designated bassist (and longtime Zig Zags sound engineer) Sean Hoffman - recalls those golden moments past, when destiny stepped in...like when Neil Peart joined Rush or Bob Rock teamed up with Metallica. In short - the circle is now complete, the cornerstone has been set and the winged serpent rises - once again. This album, their first with Riding Easy, was written over the last year. It’s reveals their longtime roots, their enduring love (all hail!) to the early punk of their hero(ines) Dead Moon and The Wipers (forever!) but friends, don’t be mislead...this is a Metal record - of the true blue, headbangin’, riff-ridin’, no-bullshit - kind.

LP - Limited to 300 Copies on Light Blue Vinyl.
