Zipper Club, the brand new LA band comprised of Mason James of Cerebral Ballzy, Lissy Trullie and Damar Davis released their impressive debut single “Going The Distance” on June 24th on Epic Records. Today they unleash the highly engaging and cinematic video for the track, directed by Mason James and Jason Hogg.
The band is currently adding the finishing touches to their debut album with producer James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins, A Perfect Circle) which features Jahphet Landis of TV On The Radio on drums. They have announced a month long Monday night residency at LA’s Silverlake venue The Satellite. The band will perform every Monday night in August. All live dates below.
Zipper Club is at its core a union of like-minded musicians who share a musical story and, through their respective former bands, have each navigated the rocky waters of the music industry. The result is a blissful head rush of a band now coming to the fore, armed with buzzing guitars, spacey synths and magnetic melodies via first single, “Going The Distance.” “It’s music that’s not trying to be something it’s not,” Trullie says of the band’s addictive, brain-lodging sound on its forthcoming debut album, produced by James Iha.
“Going The Distance” is in many ways a perfect encapsulation of the no-holds- barred attitude of Zipper Club. “It was very appropriate for me, reflective of a road to nowhere I was on at the time, and I wrote it as a coping mechanism,” he says of a song he describes as “My attitude at the time was ‘I’m going to do whatever I want. I’m going to wake up at 2 and no one can stop me.” He laughs. “It’s actually kind of the most punk song on the album.”
