Zonder/Wehrkamp, featuring drummer Mark Zonder and guitarist/keyboardist Gary Wehrkamp, released their debut album “If It’s Real” on May 24th, 2019!

The band has unleashed the 3rd production-performance video for the song “The Next Big Thing”, taken from the debut album. Watch the video below.

Gary on the video:
“I’m happy to release this third video from our new record. This was the second song we wrote and recorded. After the first one was done, Mark Zonder emailed me and said, "OK. We have our first song . What’s the next big thing?"... I thought, "That’s a good title. Let’s get started", and immediately started writing. It was so easy after hearing his inspiring drum loop. My good friends Paul Dworakivsky and Rick Fisher (with Ray Palumbo) came over with some cameras and started filing me playing the opening acoustic part. With help from Valerie Shoemaker and Alex Solca, we soon had the start to our first video. I hope you enjoy this! It’s the next big thing!”...

“If It’s Real” album is available on all digital download and streaming platforms worldwide. Get an autographed copy here. The album is also available on CD Baby, here.

Mark Zonder comments on new album:
“Please listen to the Zonder/Wehrkamp album as new music, a new experience. Yes, it is Gary Wehrkamp and myself doing the entire record ourselves and artists trademark sounds usually come through the music, but this is not a Warlord, Shadow Gallery or Fates record. This is just Gary and I being creative in a dark, moody and atmospheric way. Enjoy the journey”.

While Zonder/Wehrkamp takes the two musicians on a different path, their musical pasts are very much influences on their current project. “If It’s Real” resonates with a tenebrous emotional intensity wrapped in a more melodic, ethereal sound and philosophical take on progressive hard rock.
