A-Z featuring Ray Alder & Mark Zonder of Fates Warning announce debut Self-Titled album

A-Z

In early 2020, famed former drummer for Fates Warning and Warlord, Mark Zonder, began working on new material with the vision of beginning a new, full-time band that would offer something different from his current catalog. The mission was to deliver straightforward, no-frills hard rock that speaks to a broader audience. The end result, which sees Zonder reunite with Fates Warning lead vocalist Ray Alder, along with bassist Philip Bynoe (Steve Vai, Warlord), guitarist Joop Wolters, and keyboardist Vivien Lalu, is A-Z! Today, the band is thrilled to announce their self-titled debut album will see an August 12, 2022 release via Metal Blade Records.

A-Z is pleased to share a new music video for the album’s first single, titled “The Machine Gunner“. Pre-order the album at: metalblade.com/a-z

Speaking about the band’s debut album, Zonder (drums) comments: “It has been a long time coming, but we are all very excited to share A-Z with the world and get the show on the road!! With an exceptional-sounding album and brilliant artwork from Hugh Syme, let the games begin!”
