Discography

We have had radio (commercial and college) airplay on numerous occasions. (Hofstra, Farmingdale Universites, WLIR-under different ownership. Others as well.)
We released EP's on two occasions. Both sold well at gigs, and got radio play. We are currently working on another EP and a full length album as well.

Bio

The Zombie Flanders is a melodic, progressive rock band in the New York area. We are progressive in the sense that our arrangements are ambitious and our influences extend beyond straight rock music. But our music is melodic and accessible, with memorable hooks, and interesting emotional contours. That opinion was reinforced recently, by Fred Guarino of TIKI recording studio in Glen Cove, who favorably compared us to the group Yes, pointing out both groups’ ability to combine complexity and emotional impact in our music.

Right now we are recording a new album, and getting ready (through intense rehearsals) to go out on the road in support of that album. Our gigs recommence in May, starting with Patti and Johnny’s in West Hempstead, NY. The management and patrons there have been big supporters of ours, and we couldn’t think of a more fitting place to launch our new tour. Plus, we don’t have to drive that far.

The band was originally formed by Dave who plays keyboard, sings lead, and writes the songs, and Dan who plays drums. Dave is a former student of Dick Grove, a world renowned music educator and even more renowned bad joke teller. Dave studied voice under Katie Agresta, who also trained such notables as Jon Bon Jovi, Cindi Lauper, and Steven Tyler (that’s probably why the lessons cost $85 for a half-hour.) Dan is an accomplished drummer who played mostly prog-rock before meeting up with Dave. Terry and Erik joined the band next. Terry, the bass player, has played in everything from pop rock bands, to jazz trios, to classical ensembles, and Erik, the guitar player comes from a punk and prog-rock background (sounds almost like a paradox, but it works.) Our ultimate goal is complete world domination!...uh, I mean to reach the greatest audience we can. We employ traditional means (live gigs, radio, etc.) and the careful and thorough use of the internet and all it’s tools. We already have an international fan base, many of whom are devoted minions, uh, supporters.

We hope this new tour takes us to many places in and out of the U.S. that we haven’t been before. We love being able to share our music with all types of audiences, and meet all kinds of people. It would be amazing to come face to face with people we have, so far, only connected with online. That’s why this tour will be more expansive, and more fulfilling than any so far.
