It’s been a highly productive past 18 months or so for influential band The Zombies. Led by founder members Rod Argent and Colin Blunstone, there has been a raft of shows across the US, the SXSW festival, Time of The Season sampled by Eminem, a nomination for the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame and a new studio album.
Originally formed in St Albans back in 1961, the band disbanded in 1967, but since 2004 the reformed line-up have been assisted by songs being used in numerous films, television series and global advertising campaigns. From the hugely popular Mad Men through to last year’s Chanel campaign for Coco Mademoiselle, featuring Kiera Knightley.
Still Got That Hunger has all the elements of an enduring rock opera, with sleeve artwork created by Terry Quirk, the original artist of their iconic album Odessey and Oracle, hailed by Rolling Stone Magazine and NME earlier this year as one of the greatest albums of all time.
The UK tour features a Zombies line-up of: vocals – Colin Blunstone, keyboards/ vocals – Rod Argent, bass guitar – Jim Rodford, guitar – Tom Toomey and drums – Steve Rodford.
