The new band is playing it’s first ever shows:
FEB 3: Mass Moca, North Adams, MA (Western Mass, our home town venue)
FEB 4: 92YTribeca, New York, NY (Downtown)
FEB 6: Brighton Music Hall, Allston, MA (Boston Area)
Don’t miss your chance to say you were there from the beginning! We’ll be playing mostly tracks from the upcoming Zammuto LP (out April 3 on Temporary Residence), along with some ‘Books’ songs, plus a few surprises. Before the set we will be screening ‘Achante‘, a short film about Haitian Vodou that we scored last year.
We will also be at SXSW in Austin in March, for the whole week, playing everyday.
‘Zammuto’ (the band) is a four piece rock set up: Nick Zammuto (yours truly on vocals, guitars), Gene Back (also from the Books, on electric guitar, organ, keys), Sean Dixon (Drums), and Mikey Zammuto (aka Mikeybass, on Bass). We just finished our second week of rehearsals and we’re all feeling giddy with excitement. As Mikey says, ” This will be Epic.”
Happily, the project has picked up a lot of momentum in the last few weeks:
The track F U C-3PO was named best new track on Pitchfork, you can listen to the Make Mine EP here:
And Prefix magazine just named us among the years most anticipated albums! (no pressure).
Also Matt Day made a short film about my life and artistic process which you can watch here: (Incredibly, it’s been viewed more than 20K times in the last week!)
Sorry if you live outside of the Northeast, we will be coming to your area by the fall if all goes as we hope…
