Zao Is In The Studio
Zao have posted an update in a MySpace blog: "Hey Guys!
You’ve been asking us for an update and here it is! Right now at Lambesis Studios in San Marco CA, Daniel Castleman is mixing the brand new ZAO album which was recorded in Latrobe PA (near Greensburg), Pittsburgh PA, Encitas CA and San Marcos CA.
The album was produced by Scott with Daniel and Tim Lambesis. It features 11 tracks. 10 of them are brand new while "Romance of the Southern Spirit" has finally been given the sonic quality it deserves with a brand new recording that smashes the basement b-side version you’ve heard.
The new album is going to be called AWAKE? Yes... The title is AWAKE? with a question mark.
Here are some new song titles to chew on until we can get you some music:
• 1,000,000 Outstretched Arms Of Nothing
• The Eyes Behind The Throne
• Human Cattle Masses Marching Forward
• Quiet Passenger Pt. 2
We can’t wait for you guys to hear this album! We are very proud of it and in our humble opinions it is very reminiscent of what you have come to know and love about Zao over the years. Every band likes to say "this new album is our best yet" so we won’t say that to you. We know that albums like "Blood & Fire" and "Liberate" will always be fan favorites and they are special to us as well. But with that being said believe us when we say that we strongly feel "Awake?" is a more than worthy addition to our catalog.
The album will be released by Ferret Music most likely in the spring. Thank you for the continued support of Zao. We would not do this without you."
