Zion8 returns to Drom in NYC on Thursday December 12 for a Pre-Hanukkah Smackdown with klezmer rockers Golem and bhangra-funk party jam band Sharabi feat. Frank London and Deep Singh. More info and tickets are right over here »
Zion80 has worked with John Zorn and Tzadik Records since we began as a band. From the residency at The Stone NYC in 2013 to our three albums on the label to performances at the Village Vanguard and Town Hall in NYC as well as the Sarajevo Jazz Festival, Zorn and Tzadik have been there for us every step of the way. The following is a message from them about the PledgeMusic situation and what you can do to help and support the label:
VINYL SERIES TO HELP OFFSET THE LOSS FROM THE PLEDGE DISASTER
Hi everyone. The Book Beriah 11-cd box set was a labor of love, three years in the making, and we put a huge amount of Tzadik funding into making it happen. Sadly our distribution platform PLEDGE MUSIC ripped us (and hundreds of other artists) off and we will NOT be paid a single penny from their sales.
To help offset this HUGE loss for us we have initiated a limited edition vinyl series. Please help us by purchasing the collection – and spread the word to your friends! You can put your preorder in now at this address: https://tzadik.limitedrun.com/
Thanks to you all for your continued support! — John Zorn
JZ VINYL COLLECTION—A new limited edition vinyl series of select releases out of the Zorn catalog! Personally chosen by Zorn for release on vinyl, the LPs are beautifully made and packaged in the original artwork. A limited number of copies of each release, signed by John Zorn, will be made available for sale. Collectable and rare, purchase them all before they disappear!
