Ex-Kar­nataka mu­si­cians team up with Joe Payne and Franck Car­ducci for mam­moth con­cep­tual project.

Prog - - Intro -

Drum­mer Jimmy Pal­la­grosi has con­firmed that his new band Zio are re­leas­ing their first sin­gle Xray at the end of Septem­ber. It’s the first track from their am­bi­tious full-length Flower To­ra­nia, which will be out later next year.

“It’s a con­cept al­bum in­volv­ing sto­ry­telling, fan­tasy and sci-fi in­spired by the video games I grew up play­ing, and each of the char­ac­ters in the story will be played by dif­fer­ent vo­cal guests,” ex­plains Pal­la­grosi. “I’ve writ­ten an ac­com­pa­ny­ing story which starts with a small kid dis­cov­er­ing a mini games con­sole at his lo­cal skate park. I’ve even built the con­sole which will be fea­tured in Xray’s trailer.”

For­mer Kar­nataka band­mate Hay­ley Grif­fiths and ex-The Enid front­man Joe Payne ap­pear on that first sin­gle, with Franck Car­ducci also con­firmed as vil­lain.

Zio play their first UK gig on Oc­to­ber 21 at the Half Moon in Lon­don’s Put­ney. See www.face­book.com/jim­my­pal­la­grosiZIO. NRS
