We just had word that EDA have featured Sour Candy today, and it will feature in their song rotation. If you want to check their radio station out you can listen here.
Hi guys. Three Zeerox tracks will be featured tonight from 11pm on GasHouse Radio in a battle of the bands! Basically log in & if you like our track give it a thumbs up. Simple! You can get to GasHouse radio if you click here.
We finally got a song played on BBC Tees! It took the creation of another account with my home postcode, but we're very happy to have been featured on the Bob Fischer show. He was even good enough to spell our name to help any new fans find us!
You can listen to the show for the next week if you click here or on the picture to the left. Our song is about 21 minutes into the show if you are in a rush.
We just had word from Nick Roberts at BBC Newcastle that 'Sour Candy' will feature on his BBC Introducing in the North East show tomorrow from 8pm. You can get info about the show if you click here.
On a side note, we'd like to send our respect to Nick, who took the time to e-mail us regarding the song. At the end of the song there is some screaming, which can be hard to make out what is being said, which some lazier DJ's may dismiss as swearing instantly. Rather than do this however, Nick was good enough to e-mail us and find out that the words were actually "raspberry x3 monkey blood."
Thanks for taking the time to message us and play our music Nick.
Slightly retrospective with this post, but Zeerox were featured on the MSI Monthly Hitlist show. You can listen to the podcast of the show here or click on the image to the left.
Although we didn't win, the feedback was positive, and we have posted some of the quotes below;
“It’s got a current vibe about it.” - Ian Husbands
“It reminds me of Pink Floyd” - Tom Chianti
“It’s exciting, it’s old school, it’s electric, it’s edgy.” - Robert Lindquist
Hmm I guess the title of this update might give away the outcome of the latest Music Scene Investigation show... but we couldn't keep it quiet.
It's an honour to be rated the week's top artist by such a knowledgable panel, which included guest panellist Tony Palmer, who has worked with artists such as The Beatles, Cream, Jimi Hendrix and Frank Zappa!
The episode is available to watch here if you want to hear what the experts think of Zeerox. For our fans that don't have time to listen to the entire show, here are some quotes from the panel;
"I really would like to see that group on stage they seem to me to have bags of potential."
"I thought it was war of the Worlds v Bernard Herrmann."
"I'm buying a ticket now for their next live gig."
"The energy from that track was just amazing"
"It's raw, you can feel it, and you know everyone in that band is just going for it."
"That synth was annoying" - (Just to clarify, no synth was used on this track)
"The verses reminded me a little bit of Pink Floyd"
"What was lacking was these guys reaching their full potential"
"This was the most interestingly structured, there was movement and motion in it."
IMPORTANT NOTICE: As a Song Of The Week Artist, 'Sour Candy' will now be featured in MSI's monthly competition, MSI:HITLIST where the song will go head to head against other Song Of The Week Artists with the opportunity to win some great promotional opportunities.

'Sour Candy' was featured on http://www.shockradio.co.uk/ at 11.15pm on Thursday the 7th of February. It all happened so suddenly that we're posting about it retrospectively! It was really cool to get a bump from the DJ though, and obviously he seemed to enjoy the album title.
"Sour Candy" is the first promotional track from the debut Zeerox album. A demo version is available to listen to via the following SoundCloud link (or click on the picture to the left).
