With a reputation for playing hard, fast and loud, this is a band you do not want to miss live!
Seattle punk legends Zeke are on European shores from this week, working their way around the continent, bringing their brand of hardcore punk with them for a series of intense shows.
They’ve just wrapped up a successful US West Coast tour and released a new single- ‘Ride Hard Ride Free‘- the first taste of their upcoming new album.
The new track features Zeke’s signature mix of turbo-charged thrash-punk and Motörhead possessed rock n’ roll and will no doubt whet the appetite of fans who are anticipating the new LP which is scheduled for release sometime later this year.
In 2022, Zeke was unexpectedly reborn with founding members Blind Marky Felchtone (vox/guitar) and Donny Paycheck (drums) returning to the drum kit.
They went into the studio with Jason Freeman (bass) and Jeff Hiatt (guitar) to record a new album.
The new track is everything you’ve come to expect – or want to hear from Zeke. A full-on thrasher celebrating speed in more ways than one, the band takes cues from old Motörhead riffs, then fusing it with hardcore punk roughage. A modern Zeke classic.
But whilst we wait for the album, there are plenty of shows rolling through Europe that could be your chance to see this punk powerhouse in all their live glory. Check below for tour dates!
