Zao are one of those bands that I lost touch with and then they erupted back on the scene for me last year. Their most recent full-length, The Well-Intentioned Virus was insanely good and jolted into my Top 5 of last year relatively quickly. When I recently learned that the band wasn’t done and would be releasing a new 12″ EP titled Pyrrhic Victory, I cheered. Well, the band is currently streaming a new track from said EP titled “The Host Has Bared Its Teeth.” You can check out the track and a blurb from vocalist Dan Weyandt. SO EXCITED.
“A parasite needs a host to survive, but to the host the parasite is useless. If the parasite’s presence becomes too overwhelming, the host will then take notice and find the means to destroy it.” – Dan Weyandt
Pyrrhic Victory will be released on November 3rd Observed/Observer.
