There has been a void in the rock’n’roll world. The industry has seen titans through the years that have made rock more than just a genre…it’s a lifestyle that has ushered in a tidal wave of legends. A wave with forces so strong it washes clean the damnation of counterfeits and fakes alike. There was a day when giants walked the earth with nothing more than ankles in the deepest parts of these vast waves but have long been forgotten.
In the summer of 2014, these waves brought forth new life. Cast onto the bedrock of what seemed to be unfortunate circumstances, founding members Micah Martin and Ryan Housenga had a spark of new hope. The timing was right, and a path was shown to them. Shortly after, “The Kid” (Adam Housenga) was recruited to complete the trio and start bringing rock’n’roll back to its place of glory at the forefront of the music industry.
With melodic choruses from the choirs of heaven, to the filthy riffs from the darkest depths of the muddy Mississippi, they saw a day of reckoning for those lost souls who believed rock’n’roll is dead. After a short while Colton Menke, longtime friend and music collaborator, found himself back onto the same muddy banks of the Mississippi and the stars aligned. The Zealots had finally found the missing piece that would take this project to new heights. This rock’n’roll quartet is a force to be reckoned with.
A Zealot is a radical individual with uncompromising ideals or beliefs. They have been bringing about revival for the past 4 years all over the country. Now with the people’s attention turned toward rock n roll they realize they have longed for something real. Not just another show or concert but a lifestyle in which they can baptize themselves. The fire of conviction to live this short time on earth with meaning in all aspects of life. The Zealots are here to help any who wish to take up the path of rock’n’roll. So, come as you are, leave a new person, and bring the message of rock’n’roll to those you hold dearest. For a day of reckoning is coming and it’s in the wake of The Zealots madness.
A tragic story about a band trapped in a whirlwind of cover songs. Forced against their will to focus less on their originals and more on what the people demand. A heart-wrenching story about a drummer, due to a freak accident, is only able to grow head hair on his chin. A guitar player in search of the meaning of life and addiction to diet Squirt. A bass player so caught up in being a trendy mother @#$%er that everyone else thinks he’s a d-bag, and a lead singer dealing with an addiction to high-end imported waters. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a rating of 94.5% FRESH. Coming soon to a bar near you. If you see older folks walking out in disgust and saying it’s TOO F#$%^$# LOUD, you’re in the right place.
