Zeni Geva To "Come Back To Life Soon"

Japanese prog-hardcore doom/grind band ZENI GEVA, led by singer and guitarist KK Null, has announced plans to reform. In an interview in the latest issue of Rock-A-Rolla magazine (web site), Null states that "ZENI GEVA will come back to life soon. Actually, we're planning to do a short tour in Europe in April and also U.K. in July, including Supersonic Festival in Birmingham."

ZENI GEVA was founded in Tokyo in 1987 and quickly found a dedicated fan base in the States. Their popularity in the west enabled ZENI GEVA to be one of the first Japanese Underground bands to tour the U.S. with bands like BRUTAL TRUTH, SLEEP, BASTRO, CRASH WORSHIP, DAZZLING KILLMEN, DON CABALLERO, EYEHATEGOD, MELVINS, NEUROSIS, PAIN TEENS, SHELLAC and more.

Legendary producer/musician Steve Albini (BIG BLACK, SHELLAC, NIRVANA) rates ZENI GEVA as one of his favourite bands. He highlights the band's wide range of influences for keeping the ZENI GEVA sound diverse and challanging. Steve also admires the way ZENI GEVA embraces the Japanese culture in its sound rather than trying to westernize it.

Subsequent ZENI GEVA tours have comprehensively covered Europe, Canada, New Zealand and Australia, proving a fast emerging worldwide audience. ZENI GEVA also recorded twice for John Peel session on BBC.

ZENI GEVA has released 12 albums (five out of them produced by Steve Albini) on Jello Biafra's Alternative Tentacles, Null's own label NUX Organization, Skin Graft, NEUROSIS' Neurot Recordings and more.
