end of the road...

(deutsche Version unten)

Unfortunately we don’t have good news for you to start off 2017. Due to personal issues within the band, we’ve decided to close the chapter ZODIAC. We would like to say THANK YOU, to all of you. We had a ton of memorable shows in the last 5 years and we met so many cool people, who gave us their support. It was a really hard decision for us, but we will keep up the musical activities in a different constellation. So we are looking forward to see you guys again and we will keep you posted! - ZODIAC

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Leider haben wir zu Beginn des neuen Jahres keine guten Nachrichten für euch.
Aus persönlichen Gründen innerhalb der Band haben wir uns dazu entschlossen, das Kapitel ZODIAC zu beenden.
Wir möchten uns ganz herzlich für den Support bei EUCH bedanken. Wir hatten viele unvergessliche Konzerte und haben in den letzten 5 Jahren eine Menge coole Leute kennengelernt, die uns sehr unterstützt haben.
Uns fällt es wirklich schwer diesen Schritt zu gehen, aber wir werden in anderer Konstellation weiterhin musikalisch aktiv bleiben.
Also freuen wir uns, den Einen oder Anderen von euch irgendwann mal wieder zu treffen und halten euch auf dem Laufenden. - ZODIAC

New Song, New Video: "Animal"

Just two weeks left and "Grain of Soul" will be unleashed (via Napalm Records 29.07.2016).
Preorder: http://zodiacstore.bigcartel.com

This is the 3rd new song called "ANIMAL".
We've once again teamed up with the good guys in Iconographic to create this great video. It contains some explicit content that some of you might not find that appealing...but had to be shown to underline the (core) message of the song.

You might want to keep it away from your kids but they can surely listen to the song!
Stay tuned and keep it loud just above the acceptable level!

WARM UP SHOW FOR FREE!

Wir werden am 27.07.2016 eine WARM-UP SHOW in einer gemütlichen Bar in Münster spielen. Es wird für uns die General-Probe für die Record Release Show am 29.07.2016 im Skaters Palace. Ihr habt die Chance dabei zu sein. Alles was ihr tun müsst, ist uns ein Foto von eurem Ticket zu schicken (per Facebook, E-Mail (zodiac-rock@gmx.de) etc.).

Insgesamt 50 Plätze werden vergeben und ihr habt noch bis zum 19.07. Zeit.
Also wer noch kein Ticket hat:

New Song, New Video: "Follow You"
