Zao Working On New Album, Reveal Plans For Another 7″ Release


Zao have checked in with an update via their social media, outlining their plans for a new 7″, their progress with their next studio album and their troubled vinyl reissue of their album “The Funeral Of God“. As previously reported, that reissue was licensed to Tragic Hero Records, who missed the release date for it and apparently sent out shipping confirmations for product that never existed. Speaking of that in this latest update, the band commented:

“Last we heard Tragic Hero records is trying desperately to get at the VERY least the copies of Funeral of God that have been pre-ordered manufactured and sent out as soon as possible. We would not expect this to happen within 2018. This release has essentially been out of our hands since we handed over the new masters and our art instructions. Aside from that we had nothing to do with the pre-orders nor can we personally reach out to the buyers as we do not have this info and everything went through Tragic Hero. We are massively sorry. Never again.”

Meanwhile, the band stated that they hope to have a new 7″ titled “Decoding Transmissions From The Möbius Strip” available either in late 2018 or early 2019. It is set to be released in two different vinyl variants, each limited to 400 copies. Beyond that, they revealed that guitarist Scott Mellinger will be back in the studio this week to finish up his parts for the band’s twelfth studio album, which they expect to have out some time in 2019.
