ZOMBI @ Cattivo [Giveaway]
Hailing from Pittsburgh, ZOMBI is an instrumental duo consisting of Steve Moore (bass, synthesizers) and Anthony Paterra (drums) who’ve come to be known for their signature sounds and demonstration of seamless performances in live settings.
Moore and Paterra met through their respective activities in Microwaves and The 1985, where they bonded over their love of Italian composers, like Goblin and Fabio Frizzi, and over the presence of filmmaker, George A. Romero. After taking the European release title for Dawn Of The Dead, ZOMBI was born in 2001.
The group went on to release a self titled, full-length album and a follow-up EP, “Twilight Sentinel,” before being signed to Relapse Records in 2004. Touring alongside artists like The Dillinger Escape Plan, Guapo, Isis, Trans Am, Maserati, and Don Caballero; ZOMBI was also commissioned to record original soundtracks for filmmaker Adam Wingard’s 2003 debut feature, “Home Sick,” and for Nick Palumbo’s slasher, “Murder-Set-Pieces,” in 2004.
Recently, band members just dropped their latest full-length, “Shape Shift,” with a tour to follow suit. The album was self-produced by the band with the majority of the tracks recorded at Machine Age Studios in Pittsburgh. Moore commented on the new material, stating that the duo’s heading back to their dark, bassy roots, taking on a heavier, “live band” approach as opposed to recent and previous works with synth-heavy soundscapes.
Now, the band’s embarking on a national tour in multiple cities throughout the month of November. They’ll be joined by labelmates, Pinkish Black, an experimental rock duo from Texas, and Microwaves, a self-proclaimed “gnarly glimpse into the future of Robot Dirt.”
With a past as mournful and tumultuous as the band’s music, Pinkish Black was originally formed in Fort Worth, TX as a doom/jazz collective more commonly known by The Great Tyrant. Members Jon Teague (drums/synths) and Daron Beck (vocals/synths/ keyboards) began to redefine the current misconceptions of heavy music with an unorthodox and synth-driven approach.
The band went on to change their name to Pinkish Black in 2010, before releasing their self-titled debut album that same year on the Handmade Birds label. The band’s work was critically acclaimed, leading to their signing with Relapse Records in 2014.
The show (21+) will be held at 9PM on Saturday, November 14 at Cattivo. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online. You can also try your luck at our ticket giveaway by entering to win a set in the Rafflecopter below:
