Iconic British psychedelic pop legends The Zombies have returned to celebrate the release of
their latest Billboard-charting album, Still Got That Hunger, lead by founding and current
members, vocalist Colin Blunstone and keyboardist Rod Argent, alongside Steve Rodford on
drums, and renowned session guitarist Tom Toomey. New member, Søren Koch, joined the
band following the untimely passing of The Zombies' beloved bassist Jim Rodford (formerly of
ARGENT and The Kinks) in early 2018.
The band’s live performances, described by Rolling Stone as “absolutely triumphant”, take
fans on a journey through time, from their early hits…their 1968 masterpiece Odessey &
Oracle…post-Zombies solo favorites…right to today with Still Got That Hunger.
The second U.K. band following the Beatles to score a #1 hit in America, The Zombies infiltrated
the airwaves with the sophisticated melodies, breathy vocals, choral back-up harmonies and
jazzy keyboard riffs of their 1960’s hit singles “She’s Not There” and “Tell Her No.” Ironically,
the group broke-up just prior to achieving their greatest success – the worldwide chart-topping
single “Time of the Season,” from their swan-song album Odessey & Oracle, ranked #100 in
Rolling Stone’s ‘500 Greatest Albums of All Time.’ To this day, generations of new bands have
cited The Zombies’ work as pop touchstones, and the band continues to be embraced by new
generations of fans.
Following the break-up of the original band, lead vocalist Colin Blunstone went on to develop
an acclaimed solo career (with hits including "Say You Don't Mind," "What Becomes of the
Brokenhearted", and “Old & Wise” with Alan Parsons Project) and keyboardist/songwriter
Rod Argent rocked ‘70’s arenas with his eponymous band ARGENT (“Hold Your Head Up,”
“God Gave Rock ‘n’ Roll To You”), but the legend of The Zombies continued to take on a life of
its own. By the start of the new Millennium, Blunstone and Argent were inspired to resurrect
The explosive release of Still Got That Hunger proved that Zombies fever is stronger than ever,
with premieres at Rolling Stone, Mojo, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian Speakeasy,
and Spin, alongside special broadcast performances, including Later…With Jools Holland, The
Late Show With Stephen Colbert and AOL Sessions. Moreover, it marked a historical moment on
the Billboard charts, as The Zombies’ critically acclaimed album Odessey And Oracle re-entered
the Billboard 100 forty-eight years later at the same time as Still Got That Hunger!
The Zombies look forward to an even busier 2018, with a major world tour, table-top book
release and other exciting projects to commemorate the 50th
Anniversary of the recording of
Odessey And Oracle.
Garage psych-pop band from Austin, Texas.
