Turn It Up Tuesday!


April 10, 2012 by esarsea

It’s been a while since a Turn It Up Tuesday episode has really warranted being turned up. Well, that’s about to change. Check out these 3 cuts from “Zed” whose debut album The Invitation is scheduled for release this Spring.

I’ve had some trouble being able to locate any information about them online. It appears there is another band out there that goes by the name Zed. The Myspace and Facebook pages I found for Zed are for a different band, and I haven’t been able to find a traditional website for them either.

(Edit/Update: See comments)

Maybe one of the band members subscribes to Google alerts for Zed, and will see this post and pay us a visit here. I’d love to hear from these guys and have them bring us up to speed with what they’re doing. This stuff rocks!

Enjoy, and Turn It Up!

    Leave me Alone has an Alice in Chains/Soundgarden vibe to it. Sounds interesting……. I’ll check out the other two when time permits.

      I can hear those influences in the 1st track, along with Tool. In the 2nd track I also hear Tool, and maybe The Cult. The 3rd track has a little Black Stone Cherry and Soundgarden going on. Probably not fair to name them as influences because I don’t really know. I do know I like the music a lot!

    I may have been mistaken about their debut album being released this Spring, may have been last Spring. I just ordered the CD and got a free download of the album as a result of my purchase. It’s great…

    Hey guys, thanks for the plug! This is Mark the bassplayer from Zed, and I just wanted to say howdy and thanks for taking an interest in our jams. The album you currently have was actually put out in ’10 and we are heading back into the studio this summer to record a bunch of new tunes (and re-do one from The Invitiation that we just arent happy with!).Esarsea thanks a bunch for the order! we fully appreciate it! Keep rocking!! Oh and by the way every band you mentioned has massive amounts of respect from us, and we’re pretty stoked you guys pick up on the influences!

      Hi Mark, thanks for stopping by! Nice to meet a fellow bass player :-)

      I can’t seem to get your record off my media player. It keeps getting better and better. Turned a couple co-workers on to your stuff and they’re digging it as well. Also, I sent you guys a message through your website with some thoughts about starting up a Street Team. Let me know what you think?

      Look forward to the new record!

    Found some more stuff on Youtube. The more I find, the more I like these guys.

    I guess Mark was doing the interviews and asking all the tough questions :-) so we don’t have one from him.
    Be sure to check out the rare vh-1 “Behind The Scenes” video below. Awesome Madonna tribute, Mark! LOL
