Japanese prog-hardcore unit ZENI GEVA will conclude their UK tour tomorrow, Tuesday 23 October, at London’s Corsica Studios. The pioneering group is led by singer and guitarist KK Null and was founded in Tokyo in 1987. They quickly established a dedicated fan base in Europe and the US. Their popularity in the west enabled ZENI GEVA to be one of the first Japanese bands to tour in Europe and the US with bands like Bastro, Crash Worship, Dazzling Killmen, Don Caballero, Eyehategod, Melvins, Neurosis, Pain Teens, Shellac and more.
Steve Albini 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 challenging. Steve also admires the way ZENI GEVA embrace the Japanese culture in their sound rather than trying to Westernise it.
ZENI GEVA has released 12 albums and recorded twice for John Peel Session on BBC.
The band will also be joining the likes of MELT BANANA and MONO at the All Tomorrow’s Party’s Nightmare Before Christmas event this November/December. With those three on the line-up, that’s us sold!
