Meet… Zeropunk

Futuristic Electro-Rockers Zeropunk release their spectacular self-titled debut offering through Futurebound Records and all major digital stores, on 25th October 2010.

In their powerhouse debut record, Zeropunk have served up a hefty slice of resourceful Alt-rock with a cunning blend of crafty synth work and infectious hooks. The quartet have soaked up stellar influences ranging from the progressive dynamics of Tool, to the innovation and guile of Nine Inch Nails, through to the energy and melodic aptitude of the Wildhearts. Zeropunk are here and have definitely set out to push the boundaries and command attention.

Formed in the backstreets of North West London just over 3 years ago, it all started with the brainchild of Jesse (Vox / guitar), who finally decided to form the band he’d always wanted. A band with a new distinctive, contemporary rock sound. He put out the customary advert for a drummer, and after many auditions he finally found one that suited the band’s style. Together with Jesse’s brother on bass, they formed the first line-up of Zeropunk. Although the formula showed initial promise, the band unfortunately split citing ‘commitment issues’ as the reason. However, head honcho Jesse Clark wasn’t prepared to let Zeropunk fall back into oblivion and decided to pick the band up again, aptly acquiring Frisco on drums and Gid on bass during the early part of 2009. The revitalised trio then added Axe-welder and synth architect, George, to the mix, which added greater solidity and depth to the band’s already expansive sound.

Now armed with a killer debut album that twists and turns, the four piece really have created an engrossing record. Right from the off, ‘Welcome To The Future’ is a blistering anthemic opener. As the album moves on, it unmistakably reflects the band’s melodic craft in the shape of the unreservedly tuneful ‘Rain’. Shifting again, ‘Rabbit Hole’ is a sturdy piece of cyber rock that blasts right out from your speakers.
