ZzZ sign with ANTI Records

Anti- Records is pleased to announce the signing of Dutch "dirt rock" duo zZz. The Amsterdam-based duo, consisting of Björn Ottenheim and Daan Schinkel, was formed in 2001 and makes a remarkable mix of psychedelic electro wave, garage soul and dirty rock & roll. The sound of zZz is based on an old church organ and a simple drum kit, getting help and amplification from various electronic equipment.

zZz' last album has received rave reviews in the UK press: Spin Magazines has described their music as "both innovating and captivating", NME called it "the dark oily afterbirth of organ-punk and "the electro-krautrock loons of zZz" even took Q-Magazine "by surprise".

On July 14th, zZz released "Grip" - the first single from their forthcoming album "Running With The Beast". The video for "Grip" recently received the Award of "Best International Music Video" at the Music Video Festival in Aix-en-Provence, France. Next to that, the song and remake of the video will be used for a multimillion TV ad campaign by a well-known automobile manufacturer, which will kick off in July 2008 in UK and Germany.

The band has built up a notorious live reputation by extensive worldwide touring with the artists like Fatboy Slim, Juliette & The Licks, Jarvis Cocker, Franz Ferdinand and The Happy Mondays. A new UK tour has been scheduled and announced for July 2008 and will be followed by a club tour throughout Europe, Canada and the USA from August onwards.

"Running With The Beast" will be out in the fall off 2008 worldwide (excl. BeNeLux) through Anti Records. In BeNeLux the album will be out through Excelsior Recordings.
