Meet ZAVALAZ, the new project led by Cedric Bixler-Zavala of The Mars Volta and At The Drive In. Joining him on guitar and vocals is Dan Elkan, who has played with Hella and Broken Bells. On drums is Greg Rogove, who you may recognize from Devendra Banhart's band. Last but not least, Juan Alderete de la Peña (also formerly of The Mars Volta) rounds out the band on bass and vocals.
The music of Dot Hacker is architectural, built on a foundation of bold, manipulated tones and supported by lush eclectic textures and angular rhythm. The band's enigmatic sound comes from the collaboration of friends and founding members, Josh Klinghoffer, Clint Walsh, Eric Gardner and Jonathan Hischke. Before forming Dot Hacker in 2008, the four were already established musicians, recording and touring with an impressive list of respected artists including: Beck, Gnarls Barkley, PJ Harvey, Charlotte Gainsbourg, The Butthole Surfers and Broken Bells amongst many others. Klinghoffer, the band's lead vocalist, also currently plays guitar in The Red Hot Chili Peppers.
