Following a raucous support tour with Dream Wife and last week’s announcement of their debut self-titled album and an 8 date UK tour for February 2019, dynamic Merseyside noise punk outfit Queen Zee today release their brand new single ‘Hunger Pains’ out now on 7” vinyl and digital formats via the band’s own label Sasstone Records.
New single and live favourite ‘Hunger Pains’ is a melodic wall of noise laced with Queen Zee’s signature riotous energy. The anarchic, enigmatic band have rapidly established a cult following over the last year as they continue to defy conventions and subvert what it means to be a band. The album’s 10 racing tracks perfectly capture the mania of their now-infamous live show, and firmly cements them as torch-bearers of a new generation of British guitar bands.
It’s been an exciting year for Queen Zee, culminating in a full UK tour in support of Dream Wife and with previous single ‘Sass or Die’ making the Radio X playlist and earning John Kennedy’s track of the week. Earlier in the year Queen Zee won PRS Flash Funding at The Great Escape Festival, which has enabled them to put their madness into this debut record, and have now also been awarded PRS Momentum Funding to continue the journey. Queen Zee have also been gaining the attention of radio both locally and nationally, earning Huw Stephens’ tip of week twice and earning notable mentions from BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq, and BBC Introducing, soon followed by an invitation to the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios, with a live session and interview aired on BBC Radio One in April 2018.
Fronted by the peculiar and direct Zena Davine (aka Queen Zee), the band is completed by co-founding member and multi-instrumentalist Jason Taylor-Brown, Frankie Wortho (Bass & Vocals), Ash Summers (Keys, Percussion & Vocals) and Dave Bloom (Drums & Percussion).
