RT-ZED NEW ALBUM

RT-Zed are currently working on a new album 3 years after the release of their critically acclaimed ‘Zed Hed’ record.

The sessions are taking place in the UK with Steve and Jonesy plus contributions from original RT-Zed member John Magna and a new bass player Bubba Diamond.

Steve plans to take the electronica of the first RT-Zed album ‘Return To Zero’ and combine it with the more organic ‘Zed Hed’ plus adding a Dub element courtesy of Bubba.

The album will be released sometime in the future on the Hypermania Record Label and released in all formats including 180 Gram vinyl.

The record remains untitled at this time.

THE SECOND PRESSING OF ZED HED

Due to popular demand, RT-Zed's 2013 album Zed Hed is to be re-pressed as part of a special vinyl and CD package, released in early 2016.

The reason for the second pressing of Zed Hed, the album we released in 2013, is simply down to demand. People wanted it but the initial pressing sold out and so I decided to have more pressed up.

Due to the revival of vinyl I had to wait quite a while to receive the new batch. We were also working on a new website so I decided to delay the release of the fresh vinyl to coincide with the launch of the site.

I made Zed Hed with vinyl specifically in mind. In these days of downloads and CD’s which can be made by anyone, vinyl seemed the ‘proper’ and only way to go. I mixed and mastered with that format in mind; I used analogue tape and minimal digitising. I went old school, in my heart and mind it was always destination vinyl.

I think the music sounds deeper and warmer on 180 gram, now - i could well be imagining it but anyhow, it feels so authentic. The ritual of playing vinyl has never ceased to entertain me and it’s truly wonderful to hear your own music coming off plastic.

At the moment this new Vinyl and CD package is the only way to get Zed Hed. There will be a double CD package of Zed Hed and the ’live’ album Crunch later in the year and a re-release of the first RT-Zed album Return To Zero but for the moment the second pressing of Zed Hed is our only offering.

It’s the best thing you can do for your stylus, so sit back and enjoy.

RTZED.COM GETS A MAKEOVER

As you've probably already noticed, rtzed.com has had a lick of paint. The main purpose of the redesign was to make the site more user friendly across all devices such as smartphones and tablets. We'll also be able to update you with RT-Zed news and updates much more efficiently.

One of the upgrades was also to make the official RT-Zed Shop a much better experience for fans wanting to purchase albums etc. Simply visit the store and checkout using your debit or credit card, or alternatively using your Paypal email address.

We hope you enjoy the new site. There's going to new stuff added over the coming months including up to date interviews with Steve Grantley, videos, news, live dates and updates on the next album.

As always we thank you for your support.

Cheers
