Boston based GOZU have released a brand new album "Revival" where we going to get a taste from with the new single/video "Nature Boy".
At their core, GOZU is a bad ass American rock band. They’ve got heavy riffs in tow and bang out tunes loud enough to piss off the neighbors. GOZU is a songwriting machine, one that is able to churn out loud, hard hitting compositions without sacrificing the meaning behind the songs or the band. Gruff and dirty when it needs to be just as it’s swift and soulful when the time is right.
GOZU first appeared on the scene in 2009 with the release of their seven track EP. Consisting of members of bands such as WARGASM and CLOUDS. After a line-up change which brought on board bassist Jay Cannava of Miltown and Clouds infamy, GOZU continues to chug along at its own pace. Small Stone Records snapped up GOZU in 2009 and they released their critically acclaimed album “Locust Season.” GOZU spent the next year touring the Northeast with bands like ST. VITUS, PALLBEARER, FU MANCHU, HELMET, ELDER, LO PAN among others.
Following the success of Locust Season in 2010, GOZU returned to Mad Oak Studios and The Bridge Sound and Stage in 2013 to record their second full length album “The Fury of a Patient Man.” 2014 the band added Warhorse (Southern Lord) drummer Mike Hubbard to the mix. With the key members in tact, GOZU embarked ontheir first European tour playing the Holy Grail of festivals Roadburn and Dessert Fest with CHURCH OF MISERY and KVELERTAK.
In 2015, Gozu headed into Wild Arctic studio and recorded their third album. However, it is their first album on their new label, Ripple Music.
With a new label and a new album, only great things lie ahead for this juggernaut ensemble built on the foundation of pure rock, soul, and metal.
