Return Of Japan's Zoobombs

Japanese genre benders return to Australia for "passion and love".

Japan's Zoobombs are, without a doubt, one-of-a-kind. Born from the feverish mind of their bandleader, frontman and guitarist Don Matsuo, the group chop up elements of rock'n'roll, psych, garage and funk styles and mash it into one crazy musical concoction that is invigorated tenfold when taken out onto the live stage. When performing live the band know no bounds and after successful jaunts with the likes of The Flaming Lips (with whom they toured the US) and old Aussie tour buddies Regurgitator, the band have played hundreds of shows in front of many, many thousands of people, most of whom will not have forgotten their unique, infectious antics.

The band return to Australia for four shows in August with support from Mesa Cosa (who are bringing the band out with cash out of their own pockets) on all dates. Baptism of Uzi and Batpiss join them in Melbourne while Dead Farmers join the bill in Sydney.
