ZIG ZAGS “RIDDLE OF STEEL”

February 9th, 2017 | Listen

L.A.’s Zig Zags return from the desert wastes with this extremely relevant new song “Riddle of Steel,” an homage—or Crom-age?—to the true ethos of Conan the Barbarian, which (without spoiling too much) depends more on the hand that wields the steel than the steel itself. Truly a lesson for our times, for better or worse, so study up with the b-side to their coming “Ripping Death” 7″, out on Fri., Feb. 24, on Famous Class—also home of Zig Zags’ killer Slime EP. $1 from the sale of any spray-tan orange copy will be donated to Planned Parenthood, and there’s also a giant Planned Parenthood benefit organized by Panache Booking at the Teragram on Tue., Feb. 14, with Ty Segall, Kevin Morby, the Clavin sisters of Bleached, Shannon Lay of Feels and tons more!
