ZOAX: announce tour with FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND and start recording debut album
ZOAX:  announce tour with FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND and start recording debut album
One of the most interesting UK newcomers, ZOAX, are proud to announce supporting FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND on their Last Chance To Dance final farewell tour. FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND are playing one very last run of shows performing the album 'Hours' one night and 'Casually Dressed' the following night alongside songs from our other records and EP's. The tour package also includes the US metalcore originators SHAI HULUD.

ZOAX are right now playing the last two shows of their first mainland Europe tour with the Texan quartet NOTHING MORE. They just started recording their debut album and were more than happy to take a short break from studio work to party with old and new fans.
Formed in 2013, London-based band, ZOAX are a band set on creating music that inspire themselves in a seemingly stale and incestuous gene-pool. Still retaining the heaviness of their peers whilst infusing a broad focus on groove and melody, the 5 piece have succeeded in moulding a sound that sets them apart from the monotony of the masses. Feb 2014 saw the band introduce themselves to the world with debut EP, "XIII". Wetting the palate of all the listened, the release lead the band to its 2nd Download Festival performance and to tours with Cancer Bats, Polar, Feed The Rhino and He Is Legend. Drawing from a wealth of live experience in previous bands such as Rise To Remain, Axewound, Burn Down Rome and Time Is A Thief, the seemingly young-group control a stage with the maturity and finesse of the old dogs. With a live show that combines neck-breaking ferocity with Dickensian charisma, ZOAX are quickly cementing themselves as a must-see live band.

Drawing from the wisdom gained at the first live shows, the band have delivered 6 new tracks in their second E.P "Is Everybody Listening?" in February 2015 via Century Media Records.

The debut album is scheduled for worldwide release in April, 2016.
