Listen: Zao Bare Their Teeth on New Song


Zao’s 2016 release, The Well-Intentioned Virus, was the band’s first album in seven years… but they sure are making up for lost time. They’ll release a new EP, Pyrrhic Victory, on November 3 — less than twelve months after the release of Virus.

And not only that, but they’ve now debuted a track from that EP! “The Host Has Bared its Teeth” is about what happens when a host organism combats a parasite, and the track certainly sounds like its trying to stave off disease. The main riff bobs not-so-gently, like a ship caught in a storm, offering hurricane winds in the form of Dan Weyandt’s wet, feverish howls. If you told me this song actually left you in cold sweats, I’d believe it.
