Ottawa, Ontario’s unstoppable punk squad, ZEX, has just booked yet another massive international tour beginning in just two weeks, this time headed to Europe.
For the past year and a half, ZEX has been touring across the globe in support of their debut LP, Fight For Yourself, with several regional tours of their native Canada, a massive tour through the South Pacific, a full-on US invasion, and most recently, an extensive tour through Brazil in February. ZEX now kicks into back full-on road-ravaging mode, having plotted a widespread tour of the European continent for five months. Beginning April 30th in Berlin, Germany, the tour will run through Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, Czech Republic, Austria, Sweden, and Norway, the final show taking place at Muskelrock in Alvesta, Sweden the weekeed of June 3rd through 5th.

Channeling traditional heavy metal leads into their classic early punk rock approach, ZEX’s Fight For Yourself drops ten insatiably infectious and fully unruly anthems, the album recorded at Meatlocker Studio with Paul Yogi Granger in Ottawa and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege in Portland. With a solid fanbase and buzz already going for them due to heavy widespread touring and a diehard worth ethic, the band independently released Fight For Yourself in Canada, which caught the attention of Magic Bullet Records, who officially re-released Fight For Yourself with proper distribution to the international masses.
Fight For Yourself is available worldwide through Magic Bullet Records on CD, LP, and digital download; physical copies can be obtained HERE, and the digital HERE.
