About The Zombies
The Zombies are cited by the mercurial Courtney Love; and as influences by Badly Drawn Boy, Paul Weller, Super Furry Animals, Magic Numbers, Billy Joel, She & Him, and the Arctic Monkeys, among others. The Zombies' touring band features original members Colin Blunstone (lead vocals) and Rod Argent (keyboards & vocals), plus Jim Rodford (bass), Tom Toomey (guitar) and Steve Rodford (drums). They played live dates in the UK in 2009 and again in 2010, also touring that year in France, Spain, and the USA. 2011 started with a brilliant live-filmed concert at London's Metropolis Studios for ITV Productions. A TV show called ‘ITV Legends' aired in the UK last spring, and a DVD was released to coincide with the airing. The special will be broadcast this year in the USA.
The Zombies marked the group's half century with a stunning new album - Breathe Out, Breathe In. Already released in the UK, it has received rave reviews.
A magisterial work, Breathe Out, Breathe In's, ten songs are impeccably crafted pieces; the harmonies are rich, the melodies full, the arrangements exquisite, the organ and piano fresh, the production intuitive.
