Zao Premiere New Song “The Ship Of Theseus”


Zao have released “The Ship Of Theseus” as the second single from their upcoming new album “The Crimson Corridor“. The track references the band’s own complicated history, in which all of the founding members have long since exited the group. They explained:

“If you are not aware, or are not caught up on ‘WandaVision‘, the Ship of Theseus paradox is this: If Theseus had a ship, and over time individual parts are slowly replaced until, eventually, no original parts remain, is it still the same ship? Also if you make a NEW ship out of the discarded parts? Which is the real Ship Of Theseus? Or is it neither? Zao is nothing if not self aware.”

Frontman Daniel Weyandt added:

“This song is an enigmatic tribute to the long surreal history of Zao and its shared parallels with the Ship of Theseus paradox. It also explores the idea that the band is somehow an entity in and of itself beyond its members past and present.”

The Crimson Corridor” will be out on April 09th.
