We're extremely proud to announce that we're releasing TWO Zero Boys 7"s in June. The first is a reissue of their KBD stone classic "Livin' In The 80's". Still one of the most sought after singles in all of US punk history, routinely fetching $600 to $800. Zero Boys came from what most in the early punk world would consider absolutely nowhere, Indiana. On the strength of their self released debut 7" (Livin' In The 80's) and their Nimrod Records issued debut LP (Vicious Circle) they broke through that land locked and corn bordered land in to the consciousness of every self respecting punk at the time and that still echoes today. Secretly Canadian reissued Vicious Circle as well as a compilation of rare early material on the "History Of..." LP a few years back making the bulk of their early catalog available again. With their blessing we're batting a little clean up by making this classic single available again on the format it was intended to be heard on.
The second single contains the first new Zero Boys material in 20 years! Pairs nicely with the "Livin' In The 80's" reissue in terms of speed and tone exhibiting the more KBD punk rock and roll tendancies of that very early period rather than the speed and angst of the Vicious Circle. A great return to early form!
The band is taking these songs and their classics on tour this summer including several dates with Night Birds! They're starting with the South and East Coast with the West to follow soon.
