Zombie Apocalypse was formed in 2000 by Matt Fox and Matthew Fletcher (Shai Hulud) and Ronen Kauffman (TryFail.Tryry.), with Eric Dellon (Shallow Water Grave) joining soon after. Releasing two EPs in 2003 and 2005, it’s been nearly 15 years since the world has heard anything new from these purveyors of break-neck crossover/thrash. Rich with the distinctive imagery ZA’s fans have come to expect, the band’s new ten-song record “Life Without Pain is a Fucking Fantasy” catapults Zombie Apocalypse into the present with their most focused effort to date. Recorded by John Naclerio at Nada Studios (My Chemical Romance, Bayside, Senses Fail) in Montgomery, NY, the songs on LWPIAFF pull from different corners of aggressive music - touching on grind, thrash, hardcore punk and more - to evoke classic ZA while also reaching farther - louder, faster and heavier - than ever before.
