May 18, 2010
SPV signs worldwide deal with the prime mover – new album out in September
They were the prime mover, they preached back seat education, together with Alice Cooper they fed Frankenstein… now they are back… meaner, leaner and heavier than ever. ZODIAC MINDWARP & THE LOVE REACTION will enter a new decade of heavy dirty street rock n’roll and they declare “We are Volsung”. Inspired by the northern mythology the album features 10 brandnew unadulterated songs including a track with the german title “Stark von oben”.
SPV/Steamhammer is very proud to have the band on board for a journey to Valhalla and back. The album will be released in Germany on September 24th, in Europe on September 27th and in the USA on September 28th followed by a European tour in October and an US tour in November.
1985: In a musical World of hairspray and spandex, two long haired leather clad rockers were introduced to each other by their “exotic dancer” girlfriends. One, a graphic artist and poet, the other, a budding philosopher. They immediately dropped everything, joined forces and created the dirtiest, wildest band of all time. One year later, they signed to Polygram, released, first the ground breaking High Priest of Love EP, and subsequently the Tattooed Beat Messiah album, containing the well received single Prime Mover. Overnight, they accidentally changed the look of all the rock bands of the time from the obligatory spandex, eye liner and tinsel, to rough biker jackets, Engineer boots and goatee beards. Motley Crue declared them to be their favourite band and immediately restyled themselves for the Girls, Girls, Girls record. ZMATLR grew in notoriety, touring the World and America, co-headlining arenas and theatres with Guns ‘N’ Roses and finding themselves at home playing festivals and baseball stadiums with Iron Maiden. After attending a Hammersmith Odeon ZMATLR concert and giving it his seal of approval, Alice Cooper then recorded the Zodiac Mindwarp penned Feed My Frankenstein, later performed in the film Wayne’s World. The critical acclaim of ZMATLR then caused rare misfortune, when they lost their young naive bass player to the lures of The Cult. The band soldiered on regardless. Sometime later, in Paris, Slam Thunderhide, their drummer decided to put down his sticks to become a GoGo dancer in Vancouver.
Present day: With “The Cat” shaking the Earth on Drums and “Jack Shitt” rumbling the low frequencies, they ride again, honing their skills playing for the Viking descendants in Scandinavia. From these tough, manly ordeals, a new set of recordings have been forged. “We Are Volsung” is the result, a celebration in the Norse tradition. 10 Songs of pure unadulterated rock.
The New Album “We Are Volsung” will be released on SPV/Steamhammer worldwide in September 2010.
