Nearly two months after officially changing their name to Prodigal Zoo, Ohio's Twelve Tribes has dumped the moniker and reverted to their original name. Here's a statement from the group:
"Well, it's been almost two months since our unexpected transformation - and to be quite honest, it wasn't us. We changed our name looking to create another identity to accommodate the profound changes we have made in our music. But what we were missing was our history and our name, which we have worked for over seven years to establish. The response that we got from people who love the name Twelve Tribes and respect what we have done in the underground music scene was amazing. And for that, we are grateful."
Look for the group's Ferret Music debut, "The Rebirth Of Tragedy," to hit stores on May 4th.
Long time friends of Ferret Music, 12 TRIBES, have reinvented themselves as PRODIGAL ZOO and joined the Ferret family. The band is currently finishing up writing their debut full length, "The Rebirth of Tragedy," which will be recorded in early 2004 at Trax East in New Jersey with a tentative May 2004 release date.
PRODIGAL ZOO is more than a continuation of 12 TRIBES; it's a completely new, rebuilt, and reborn sound. Check out two demos from their forthcoming album below:
