Zeal & Ardor to release new studio album “Stranger Fruit” on June 8th 2018

Picture the scene: a late Summer evening, crickets sing their song, your bare feet firmly planted in the soil, the poplars gently sway in the wind, and the stench nearly knocks you out cold.
 
Creative firebrand Manuel Gagneux returns with a brand new Zeal & Ardor single.

“Gravedigger’s Chant” was released on Good Friday, March 23rd, and serves as an omen of what's to come from his forthcoming second Zeal & Ardor album, “Stranger Fruit”.

Zeal & Ardor signs to MVKA and announces new single & Spring 2017 European Tour

MVKA welcome new signing Zeal & Ardor.

Imagine this: Tarantino's Django sacrifices a goat on stage while intimidating slave chants roar and screeching guitar riffs burn in the background. Then the rhythmic chain rattling evoking a satanic summoning makes way for the eerily familiar melodies of Norwegian black metal. This genre mix that has been garnering attention online since April 2016 belongs to Zeal & Ardor.

Biv and the Mnemonics - The Pace on April 16th

After four years of playing shows and gaining fans in the Bay Area and beyond, San Francisco band Biv and the Mnemonics is proud to release their 2nd full-length album, "The Pace", on April 16th, 2013. The band, formerly known as Roy G Biv & The Mnemonic Devices, has produced a ten-track collection of quality songs and energetic harmonies evocative of the great folk-tinged rock of the past, while providing their own unique energy that can't be resisted. "The Pace" is an exciting and imminently listenable album; it's warm, full of catchy melodies and hooks, and brimming with well-thought-out harmonies and eclectic instrumentation.
