60 Seconds With… Zelorage


So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?
We are called Zelorage, and we’re made up of Sam Brand (vocals/guitar), Rowan Brand (bass) & Mark Polst (drums).

Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?

A lot of people say that we sound like early Korn and Deftones mixed with a bit of early grunge.

What do you love about making music?

The ability to create something we all love playing. We all gel well together and think alike, so when we come up with new material it’s always easy because we are all on the same page. Also, playing music to crowds of people. There is no greater thrill then showing people your music.

What do you hate about the music industry?

The people that spend minimum time in the industry, and get further then anyone who has been working hard all their life.

If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?

John Bonham. Just because he is such a major influence and inspiration on everything I’ve learnt musically.

If you could assassinate one person or band from popular music, who would it and why?

Refer to question 4.

What can a punter expect from your live show?

Lots of stage energy. We take great pride in putting on a live show and giving not only the punter, but also ourselves, the best times of our lives.

What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?

We have two full length, independent albums. Silent Threat recorded at Capitol Sound Studios in Adelaide (2008), and Body Of Her recorded at North Studios, Loxton (2010). Both albums are available at all our shows or at bigcartel.com

When’s the gig and with who?

Friday February 3 at the Espy Gershwin Room, and then Saturday February 4 at the Prince Bandroom supporting (Hed)PE, and Nothing (feat Jeffrey Nothing from Mushroomhead).

Anything else to add?

We have big plans for 2012, including talk of a new album on the way, and an East Coast tour towards the end of the year. You can check out all upcoming news, tours, photos and music at www.reverbnation.com/zelorage or on Facebook.
