With From Autumn to Ashes reunited and doing some touring this summer with Hawthorne Heights, Sleepwave and Extinction A.D., Zao has issued a statement regarding their drummer Jeff Gretz, who plays in both bands.
Said the band in a Facebook statement:
“We will state for the record, regardless of the From Autumn To Ashes activity: “Jeff is still in Zao.” In fact he was working on 7 inch details today. The FATA reunion is not holding anything up. Just wanted to lay that out there before rumors started.”
The two-song 7″ release will be the first new material from Zao since 2009’s Awake?, and will include two songs, “Xenophobe” and “Fear Itself.” No release date has been given just yet.
