The Zilla Show
The ZILLA Show is a 5-piece outfit based out of Boston. Formed in the summer of 2014, the band was founded by front woman, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Meredith Snyder and powerhouse lead vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist Adam Moore as a means of performing Meredith’s original music, initially titling the project, ZILLA. Meredith and Adam began joining forces as songwriters through the years and after a period of intense gigging and growth, the band emerged in its current state with new personnel and a new name resulting in, “The ZILLA Show.” Alongside Meredith and Adam is long time band member Tyler Last with Josh Strmic and Sally Stempler
The band released there debut E.P. “DreamState” in May of 2016 and is currently in the midst of recording their debut album, which is scheduled for a late 2017 release.
During their time together the band has actively pioneered their own sound that emanates from a love of combining modern sounds and arrangements with classic rock and soul influences. This has resulted in a totally unique sound characterized by soaring vocal harmonies, blistering guitar solos, and a deep pocket, giving birth to the term, “monster-soul.”
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, gather round and summon your courage, for you are on the precipice of an experience you won’t soon forget! An entertainment spectacle not suited for children, the elderly, pregnant women or Nickelback fans! In the sewers and back alleys of Allston Rock City potent and perverted musical forces have given birth to a Monster… an EIGHT-HEADED FREAK that has a long and sordid history of savage attacks on the cliches of American Popular Music. Spewing half-digested remnants of metal riffage, bebop licks, and soul grooves, the Beast is as unpredictable as It is ugly. Local residents must remain on their guard, for It is known to seduce Its listeners with soothing siren songs, catchy melodies, and danceable grooves, only to viciously and suddenly attack the eardrums with bile-spewing FREE JAZZ and MATH ROCK MELTDOWNS. Rumored to have nurtured Itself on wastewater flowing from prominent local Music Institutions, the Monster has acquired a voracious appetite for new genres to dismember and new crowds to shock and entertain. Hear Ye, Hear Ye! In the grand tradition of luminous musical freak shows such as ZAPPA and the MOTHERS, CHARLES MINGUS, and MR. BUNGLE, I present… the electrifying, the terrifying, the horrible…. STRANGE CHANGES!!!
