Drew Fortier, the bands guitarist, says “Zen From Mars has been our secret baby for a long time now. I am so relieved and excited to finally start getting it out there. A lot of thought has gone into this band and the release structure for the record will surely be very unique. Keep your eyes and ears peeled. This is only the beginning.”
Bassist Chip Z'Nuff states: "Great song, rockstar singer, two solid guitarists, brilliant drummer, world renowned bassist, foxy keyboardist = Supergroup!"
The band’s vocalist, Stephen Shareaux shares: “ZFM is purely a passion project, I just really love this music! We had a deep connection musically from the word go, Drew and I! Plus he was just so damn persistent! (laughs)”
Kate Catalina, the bands keyboardist stated: “It has been a really thrilling process watching this band come to life and hearing musical concepts turned into beautiful, heavy, transcending songs. The contrast alone is mesmerizing: each member operates from a different genre, but we all met in the same land of songwriting and performance.”
The bands other guitarist, Brynn Arens vaguely stated that, “ZFM is the BEST fucking band you’ll NEVER see.”
