Continuing on with our series of Goner Fest 13, bands that will blowing you away September 29th through October 2nd is Zerodent. Zerodent formed in February 2015, recorded a demo in April, recorded an album in July 2015, catching the eye of Goner Records with an invitation to play Goner Fest. The album is out now on Alien Snatch! Records. The band is out of Perth, Australia… And I don’t know what those Australians are putting in the water down under but dang the talent coming out of that place is unreal. Zerodent will be going on tour starting on the east coast of Australia and their US tour this fall, finishing off their tour with a stop in Memphis for Goner Fest. Members are Lee Jenkins (vocals), Louis Hooper (drums), Predrag Delibasich (guitar) and Kenta McGrath (bass).
“Zerodent’s LP contains ten short, loud and melodic songs. From the opening “Joy” the band firmly stands on punk grounds, blending r’n’r, new wave and pop into it. Lyrically, the band threads between feeling good/feeling bad and “me against the world” themes, pointing a finger at others as well as themselves.”
…a brand of tooth paste. Also a punk band from Perth, Australia
